People tell me I'm no good
'Cos I'm expressin' all my sentiments
Now I got to channel all my vehemence
For the benefit of my self defence
And you can be a do gooder
But true sincerity ain't charity
It can take a life time to be
How you wanna be
You can be light years
Away from serious intention
See I thought I knew it all
Someday
I'd get to turn mankind
This way
If you don't know you can be light years
Away from your true destination
No conscious escalation
Until I get with good vibration
I'm never gonna get to use that
Use that earthly power
Substitutes
Can never take the place of peace of mind
Losing all sense of direction
When you're light years
Too far away to turn you back on substitution
There is no u-turn on a one way route
Goin' up when I learn to love the life I can bite the fruit
Now I got sunshine in my life
Light years
Never to return to Babylon
See money don't make a man
But if you really want you get there anyway you can
