Song Description

It's a song about facing frustrations with the innate hypocrisy, ignorance and irrationalism that dominate human behavior, and accepting your own less than ideal confusion about it all, and your own failures. It is an existential rant with a deeper message about the collective absurdities and contradictions in society.

SJ's "I Am" is a wonderful song. It captures so many moods and concepts that we've all experienced at least once in our life. The performance is masterful !! The vocals sound perfect for the lyric and musical content. I know you will wrap this piece of art around your heart, mind and soul !!
Bravo SJ !!!

Lyrics

I am sitting around wondering why wondering why it is that I can swim but I can't fly
I am counting pennies ducking calls staring at walls stripped down naked soul socks and a bow
I am calling foes missing friends watching lives end trying to find where the new lines begin
I am crossing fingers flipping cards wondering why wondering why truth itself is the best lie

I am paying to lose, I'm paying to win, I'm paying with their fake prayers, but mostly my so-called sins
I pay them so they do, I pay them so they don't
And for just a little more I can't stay deaf, dumb, blind, lost and confused

I am falling down forgetting to sleep I lose my head at least five days a week
I am chasing away wolves and woes and girls who knows, caught the ball forgot how to throw
I am finding rhythm melody and notes wondering why wondering why heavy never floats
I am fixing scores clearing drawers settling wars 'cause tomorrow I won't be here anymore

I am paying to choose, I'm paying to breathe, I am paying with magic tokens and one teaspoon of magic beads
I pay them so they don't, I pay them so they do
And for just a little more I can stay deaf, dump, blind, lost and confused

I am paying to lose, I'm paying to win, I'm paying with their fake prayers, but mostly my so-called sins
I pay them so they do, I pay them so they don't
And for just a little more I can't stay deaf, dumb, blind, lost and confused

I am sitting around wondering why wondering why it is that I can swim but I can't fly
I am counting pennies ducking calls staring at walls stripped down naked soul socks and a bow
I am finding rhythm melody and notes wondering why wondering why heavy never floats
I am fixing scores clearing drawers settling wars 'cause tomorrow I won't be here anymore
I am I am I am, I am I am I am, I am I am I am, I am
