about

A song written for the Bushwick Book Club in Seattle WA, based on the book "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!", about the life of Richard Feynman. The song was inspired by his talk on admitting to your mistakes, and also partially inspired by the death of his first wife.

lyrics

Sometimes truth is not the answer
That you were looking for
Sometimes desire is a cancer
You waste away looking for more
You have a drive to find a meaning
You have a drive to find a light
So keep in mind when you're swinging
You can't hit everything in sight

If you're OK lying to yourself
Than you're living life as a fool
If you can't seem to solve the problem
Than you shouldn't blame the tool
You only get one chance with this life
Use your time to rewrite the rules

If you fall reaching for your goal
Open your eyes on the way down
And you will see a part of your soul
Don't you ever let it drown
Cause that part keeps you honest
That part keeps you free
From losing sight of your quest
From losing sight of what could be

If you're OK lying to yourself
Than you're living life as a fool
If you can't seem to solve the problem
Than you shouldn't blame the tool
You only get one chance with this life
One chance with this wife

Sometimes truth is not the answer
But the truth is all there is
