Some people die when they're old and depressed
Some people die when they fall from their crest
Some people die when they're old and in bed
Some people die when they're holding their breath
But when it's up to you
You'll find the things that you can do
And when it's up to you it's easier to push on through
And when it's up to you you'll see the path in front of you
And when it's up to you you will
Some people die from the size of their chest
Some people die when they can't match the best
Some people die when don't have a rest
Some people die when they fail all the tests

    This is a filler song, like I Don't Mind, but like that song is still pretty good. It echoes Jimi Hendrixs phrase as detailed above! 'Find yourself first and then your tool, Find yourself first don't be no fool'. I used to have that up in my kitchen on the wall. Grafting is the best way of finding yourself.
