Singer/Songwriter explains his motivations.

Things I’ve said and works I’ve done
Are fading like the setting sun
The future echoes of the past
The present of course can never last
You say I’m all that I can be
I’ve fallen too close to the tree
Guess he’ll always be a part of me
As far as I can see
So long innocence
Good-bye purity
Hello consequence
Play your games and tell sweet lies to me

What I want’s not what I need
I cut myself and try not to bleed
You’re not a rose just another weed
That’s grown all over me
I put my heart into my songs
Hoping someday I might right some wrongs
I’m standing here but I don’t belong
As far as I can see
So long confidence
Good-bye security
Hello diligence
Play your games and tell sweet lies to me

I’m no angel with golden wings
Just a puppet on these guitar strings
Or moss that sits on rock and clings
With dreams of being free
I put my soul into my words
Try to say what’s not been heard
Songs in the dark
Like I’m some night bird
As far as I can see
So long arrogance
Good-bye jealousy
Hello elegance
Play your games and tell sweet lies to me G. Gabriel
