Self-Righteous Perception

Every so often I come across songs that I think apply to the majority of us in SL and this is one of them. Take a minute, if you will, just read the lyrics before you click on the title link to actually hear the song. Even if you’re familiar with the song already…try to read the words more like a poem…let them sink in. For me, this type of philosophical, metaphoric poetry says more than any one person that even begins to suggest what is right for your life when they barely know you at all. We learn more about ourselves and our truths by looking inward with a mirror made of jagged edges, than we will ever learn from someone else’s self-righteous perception.

Highly Suspect – My Name Is Human

I’m feeling the way that I’m feeling myself
Fuck everyone else
Gotta remember that nobody is better than anyone else, here
(Do you need some time to think it over?)
Look what they do to you
Look what they do to me
Must be joking if you think that either one is free, here
Get up off your knees, girl
Stand face to face with your God
And find out what you are
(Hello, my name is human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello, my name is human)
I’m ready for love, and I’m ready for war
But I’m ready for more
I know that nobody’s ever been this fucking ready before, hey
(Do you need some time to think it over?)
So figure it out, or don’t figure it out
I figured it out
The bigger the river (the bigger the river)
The bigger the drought (the bigger the drought)
Get up off your knees, boy
Stand face to face with your God
And find out what you are
(Hello, my name is human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello, my name is human)
Fire world, I love you
Fire world
I’m up off my knees, girl
I’m face to face with myself
And I know who I am
(Hello, my name is human)
I stole my power from the sun
I’m more than just a man
(No longer disillusioned)
(I’m not asking questions)
(‘Cause questions have answers)
(And I don’t want answers)
I came down from the stars (so I’ll take my chances)
(And what are the chances)
(That I could advance)
(On my own circumstances)
(Said “what are the chances?”)
Hello, my name is human (And what are the chances?)
(I don’t want your answers)
(I’m not asking questions)
(So you keep your answers)
And I know who I am (So you keep your answers)
(I’m not asking questions)
(I’m taking my chances)
