ConduitThe Grit

I once met a wise man, much wiser than me.
He showed me some things that I didn't see.
He taught me how to give thanks.
He told me to think free.
These are some things I've always taken with me.
I'll keep that in my head.

I'll make my own opinions and I'll live by my ways.
I'll make my own decisions and I'll mean the words I say.
I'll keep on my vision until I see it in play.
I'll lose my inhibitions because there ain't no other way.

I once met a woman with a different point of view.
She showed me some things that I didn't do.
She taught me how to see beauty in ways I wasn't used to.
These are some things I now try to pursue.
I'll keep that in my heart.

I'll make my own opinions and I'll live by my ways.
I'll make my own decisions and I'll mean the words I say.
I'll keep on my vision until I see it in play.
I'll lose my inhibitions because there ain't no other way.

Back to the playa, I'm gonna ride it on down with the finest folks around.
