about

My anthem to the indecisive, a country-ish tune that encourages the listener to get off their keester and choose.

Or does it?

lyrics

I'm not sure if this song is quite finished yet,
and I haven't really played it in a while.
But if you're lucky, you know I might just finish it,
and if you're lucky, you know you might smile when I tell you I'd make

the Prince of the Danes look decisive,
or our leaders look like they had a plan.
Just 'cuz you can, that don't mean you should do it,
and just 'cuz you want to, that don't mean that you can.

Been thinking for a while,
'bout how and what to do,
maybe it don't matter what we choose,
just choose.

Am I a photographer with boxes of wilting photographs,
or a rock star with a dozen shuffling fans,
or a doctor whose patients still get sicker,
or a mystic with a short attention sp …

Been thinking for a while,
'bout how and what to do.
Maybe it don't matter what you choose,
just choose.

And I guard my heart from my lust's worst excesses,
'cuz that lust says that most anyone will do.
This time off's been one of my life's great successes.
Sometimes not doing is the best thing you can do.

Been thinking for a while,
'bout how and what to do.
Maybe it don't matter what you choose,
just choose.
Been thinking for so long,
I got nothing left to lose.
Maybe it don't matter what you choose,
just choose.

Sometimes I feel less like living than being lived,
like my life is more than mine, so I keep looking for the signs,
not of blind hands of fate, but a spiral unfolding broad and kind.
Finally I've made up my mind! Got just one job to do,
and that's choose.

Been thinking for a while
'bout how and what to do.
Maybe it don't matter what you choose,
just choose.
Been thinking for so long,
I got nothing left to lose.
Maybe it don't matter what you choose,
just choose.
Maybe it don't matter what you choose,
just choose.

First I'm gonna get enthused, then choose.

Choose.
