Song of the Day “Invented”

Invented

© 2012 Andy Harrison

From the day you were born they put you in a box

Trained your mind to define under key and lock

Your identity formed from predefined scripts

So your future’s controlled and your wings are clipped

Chorus:

There are better choices than the ones presented

If you want a better life it’s got to be invented

You grew up being told you have freedom to choose

But that’s only so you doubt yourself more when you loose

You only can choose from the options you see

So what’s presented as a choice defines your reality

Chorus:

There are better choices than the ones presented

If you want a better life it’s got to be invented

When you map out your future from childhood on

You’re building space in your brain for your life to dance upon

Forces through people and people through systems

Try to limit your vision cut you off from your wisdom

Chorus:

There are better choices than the ones presented

If you want a better life it’s got to be invented
