Swimming Upstream

Swimming Upstream

they tell me theres’ gold at the end of the rainbow
just follow the current and you’ll get there some day
but that rainbow of theirs ain’t got all the colors
so I turn around and I go the other way

(chorus)
and I’m swimmin’ up stream
like a fish in the water I am
swimmin’ up stream
like a fish in the water I am

they say there’s rewards in the great here after
if I would just sit silent and pray
but all the here afters don’t help here and now
and how can you be quiet when there’s so much to say

(chorus)

(bridge)
why don’t you be normal, normal they say
why don’t you be normal, it’s better that way
there’s fortune and fame at the end of the day
why don’t you be normal, and I say

normal is whatever normal decides
and normal enforces the rules
and history’s filled with historical normal
that made us all look like fools

(chorus)

I could give up and be happily dosed
like a good little drone all asleep in my dream
but however you live is however you die
so I’ll just keep swimmin’ up stream

(chorus)
