if you had a blank slate tonight what would you do

break out

sometimes when im flying to new york i think wow what would i do when i land

and then when im out there and im thinking about what people are doing in LA

i think wow i wonder what i would do if i was in LA tonight.

who would we be if we knew it would be ok to be totally different?

gen x used to think about the perils of selling out

being someone who you arent for money or security or whatever used to be the biggest sin

we used to judge tv shows or musicians or politicians

for not staying true to their ideals

even though we’d do all these phony things to be loved and accepted.

so when are we truly ourselves

and when will we allow it to happen?
