Life Script

We live life as a prescription
Following the moral code
But we suffer contradictions
On this long and distant road

Heeding and keeping edicts 
Is the focus of the game
But the accolades we’re seeking
Aren’t ours to acclaim

We have lived obeying orders
And conventions that we face
Without stopping for direction
We accept our daily fate

But we fail to bother trusting
Our own internal voice
Disappointments, we are feeling
‘Cause we think we have no choice

A life that’s unexplored and empty
Doesn’t have to rule our lives
And the standard expectations
Aren’t enough now to suffice

We must trail our new horizons
And must plot our own design
And base the evaluations
On our  truth that we will find
