about

My best friend is a retired Psychologist who also plays music. Having dabbled in the counseling field as a youth minister, I enjoy the art of "Psycho-babble" when we get together to play music. We laugh a lot and have heavy discussions that don't solve anything...That s the inspiration for the song: A LOT of questions...lol.

lyrics

PHILOSOPHER
By Mychael John Thomas

You can run from the truth for so long
Till you have to look inside…See the right and wrong
(Then you) Take a look at yourself in a different light

‘Cause there’s so many people with hate in their heart
And the best you have to offer still don’t get far
(And it) Seems all you can do won’t end the fight

CHORUS
All of us are actors…The world is a stage
We choose a part and the lines that we say
Life is a story…Our time is a script
But we are the writers every day we use the gift…

You can lie to everyone till you die
Even lying to yourself never asking why
(Even so) One power in charge who will always know

There is Universal justice…Believe it or not
So deny it all you like…You can’t make it stop
(Just believe) That a reckoning comes before we go

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I don’t really wanna think about it
But thoughts keep rollin’ round in my head
All this confusion…I can do without it
But wondering until I’m dead…

SOLO


You can follow every clue that you find
But there’s just another question waiting in the line
(Everything) All depends on your personal point of view

We can have a deep discussion…Dissecting it all
And philosophize problems that we’ll never solve
(But the) Paradox carries on no matter what we do

CHORUS
