Pieces (Originally Untitled) – Written November 1995 (Aged 20)

Pieces

everyone wants a piece of you
you have got to be everyone to everything
you have got to be on your feet and think
you have got to be doing the right thing everywhere
everyone wants a piece of you
no matter how little you have to share
you have got to be this, that and something else
you have got to be calm, honest yet happy
and most of all remain true to yourself
you have got to live in the shadows, dance in the sunlight
never worry too much or get down
make sure you are taking your pills and feel alright
you have got to be a part of it, live it up
work in the day, play all night
get rich, be nice, fur must be fake
live in the countryside, commute to the city
never let on you know know, never make mistakes
never indulge in lookism, even if you are pretty
everyone wants a piece of you
do not get down if you are lucky
really selfish, yet try to care
everyone wants a piece of you
even if you have not much to share
