about

the way i see it, too many people spend too much time doing something that drains them completely, just to get paid. most people take it for granted that getting paid is the whole point of working, but i believe that human potential is MUCH greater than simply satisfying our physical needs like warmth and food. we have reached a level of technical sophistication where we could feed twice as many people than we have on earth, and still people starve, while some people don't work at all and have more than i can even imagine. many people's goal in life is to make a lot of money, but money doesn't make you happy. yes we need some money to live, but it's a lot less than we are led to believe. it all depends where your priorities are. but if being happy is a priority and your job is making you unhappy, then you either need to find something that you enjoy or continue to suffer. many people think that money buys them security, but how much security and at what cost? i'm definitely gonna die, and the way the economy looks my money could disappear too. i'd rather sacrifice some material satisfation to do what i love and contribute positive energy to the world, than gain the world for the price of my soul. furthermore, i think almost everyone who is truly successful is successful because they love what they do.

lyrics

quit my job

it seems i'm always working, spending all my time
fighting for a future that's just in my mind
but everywhere i look everything's falling down
i wonder does this make any sense at all?

cuz if we keep on burning poison at this rate
then i'm not getting old and now it's getting late
but either way my time is quickly running out
cuz you know we ain't gon live foreva

i'm gonna quit my job and follow my heart
i can trust in god if i go do my part
not gonna wait to live till i'm a sick old fart
i'm gonna trust in god … heheh … I'M GONNA QUIT MY JOB!

i could keep this stupid job and maybe make a lot of dough
but the value of it is sinking even faster than we know
i could also spend a hell of a lot more time doing what i love
so even if my life is short … i'm gonna have some fun!

well now i don't know if i'll be here tomorrow
the fact that i'm here now is all i really know
but it seems like my whole life is just a means to an end
but i'm not even sure i'm gonna reach that end

i'm gonna quit my job and follow my heart
i can trust in god if i go do my part
not gonna wait to live till i'm a sick old fart
i'm gonna trust in god …

i'm gonna leave my house and buy a van
i'm gonna see as much of earth as i can
not gonna wait till i'm a sick old man
i'm gonna trust in god … I'M GONNA QUIT MY JOB!

some day i might have kids and feel responsible
to go and work real hard - send them to private school
but how can i raise my kids if i am never there
and you know you can't pay your kids to be good people

i'm gonna quit my job and follow my heart
i can trust in god if i go do my part
not gonna wait to live till i'm a sick old fart
i'm gonna trust in god … heheh … I'M GONNA QUIT MY JOB!

i'm gonna leave this house and buy a van
i'm gonna see as much of earth as i can
not gonna wait till i'm a sick old man
I'M GONNA QUIT MY JOB! … I'M GONNA QUIT MY JOB!
