Words to live by


PIONEERING SPIRIT

Focus on your goals because all your wants and needs
Are different from everybody elseís
Listen to your heart, your dreams and your thoughts
Donít go jumping on the wagon just to follow the crowd

If your true opinion is not popular,
Go on record as the real opposing force
A significant minority agrees, but theyíre scared
They know you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt
That you are a pioneering spirit

Youíre not here to compete, so, feel good about yourself
You are gifted in art and land and food
Have the confidence you need to accept that youíll succeed
Never doubt that youíve a right to all thatís good

Keep your mind on your money; save it for a rainy day
Peace of mind is a valuable thing
Stand up tall for your rights without underhanded schemes
Fight back and watch the onlookers sing

If your true opinion is so unpopular
Go on record as the real opposing force
A significant minority thinks youíre right, but theyíre scared
They know you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt
That you are a pioneering spirit
Claim your power; raise your ego
Donít put yourself down; pick it up
Praise your mind, your body and your soul
Let the old disappear; go and try something new
Make a positive attitude be the beacon of YOU!

Keep your mind on your money; save it for a rainy day
Peace of mind is a valuable thing
Stand up tall for your rights without underhanded schemes
Fight back and watch the onlookers sing

Everybodyís got a problem, a cross, a wall
Face it. Talk about it. Walk that mile
Take a break from your family, be a rabbit on the run
Take a chance, you might meet that guy or girl
On the fly, through the sky, you ascend to on high
On the fly, you are a pioneering spirit

Going nowhere? Schoolís no thrill?
Find a subject, if you will
That can open up your heart and feed your face
You see, money you get doing something, truly, you donít like
Is just hanging with the Joneses on the take

Your opinions may not always be too popular,
Go on record as the real opposing force
A significant minority agree, but they are scared
ĎCause they know you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt
That, like you, who does exactly what you do,
They're the same in this game
And they see to be free they must be
Pioneering spirits, too!
