My Writing

Mike Siver asked to see some of my writing. This is a song I wrote about a familiar topic with me: the feeling that trying harder and harder is not the way to success. It's called "Driving" as in driving yourself to perfection.

Driving is an original song by RealitySeeker about the terrible angst and anxiety caused by relentless striving. Our culture raises us to believe we can arrive by attaining some measure of material accomplishment or ego satisfaction.


Lyrics:


Verse:

Someone said

There's a standard

You're supposed to be


But, I can't find

Any road to take me there


Pre-chorus:

I've done the things

They've told me to

God, knows I've tried

But I still don't know

Who I...


Chorus:

I'm still chasing, that

Elusive goal

And I don't know

If I'll get there

I'm gettin' old, and…


I'm still trying have my say

Trying, to find my way


But I don't know

I just don't know


Verse:

I'm so tired of striving

So tired of never getting there

But there on the horizon

That next hill

Perhaps, I will


Can I be free?


Chorus:

I'm still chasing, that

Elusive goal

And I don't know

I'm gettin' old

Still trying have my say

Trying, to find my way


But I don't know

I just don't know


Bridge:

I remember when

The future welcomed me

And I would dream of all the things

That I believed could be


And when I cast my gaze

Upon the distance once again

I'm sad

Because I remember
