Lyrics

[This is a song I wrote a couple weeks ago,
and I thought I'd play it just to see how it goes.
So if it's, oh, it's called 'Towers of Rabble',
and if it sucks, let me know...]

be yourself, don't be yourself
speak your mind, don't speak your mind
stand alone, don't stand alone
be on your own, be all alone

and as the bells ring the graces
of a newborn day
the voices sing the praises
of your promised youth, promised whenever

and no one can see you
so do what you want to
you're invisible next to forever

be yourself, don't be yourself
speak your mind, don't speak your mind
stand alone, don't stand alone
be on your own, be all alone

take some time to thank the souls
for all their emptiness
upon the fever dreams of distant sons
and daughters dressed for ransoms, for never

and nobody knows you
even if they pretend to
they all sure that they're just as clever
truth is rare as ivory
the truth is in their pure deceit
blessed in your naivete

ooh, i thank you all
ooh, i thank you all
ooh, i thank you all, i do
ooh, i thank you all
