about

The first of many songs written after recovering from a broken wrist, 'It's My Life' is a song where Berkeley addresses people's hang ups and announces his own individualist perspective.

lyrics

I'm not here coz I wanna
I'm here coz I was put here
I look for a landmark
But all I have is a blank map
I walk on a long road
There ain't no left or right
All I see are leaders
Speed away from the light
I've been shown the wrong path
Led astray by my demons
I know I'll have the last laugh
I'm glad I'm not a free man
I look for the answers
But I won't ask the people
all I find are liars
Who push me even deeper

I'm a tough case to handle
Marmite to young and old
Some see a lit candle
To others I'm just bold
I don't see a reason
To bow to a queen
Who lords it over me
Never knowing where I've been
I laugh in the faces
Of my petty rivals
If you wanna be in my place
Just fan your fire
They tell us all what to do
They don't know we're different
All they're doing is making me choke
Leave me alone coz it's my life

Jealousy
Apathy
Tryna cut out my fire
Put all to shame
I win the game
Go higher and higher
Don't waste my time
I won't toe your line
Stay down in the mire
I'm alive
Until I die
So it's my life

It's my life

It's my life....
