When Will I Be Satisfied? (Act Like You Know – part 3)

When Will I Be Satisfied? (Act Like You Know – part 3)

(Intro)
What’ll it take.. for me to stop the self-hate.
What’ll it take.. for me to rest with it, accept fate

What’ll it take.. for me to be satisfied.
See successes when I smiled and not the failures when I cried. X2

What’ll it take? Success without selling out
And without being fake… or my head swelling? – Wow!

Will I be satisfied when i have my cake and eat it. can’t go
through life undefeated… let my fate be “winning now”!

Will I be satisfied when I’ve made money working all day
Inspiring people with music or children with more play?

I feel most fulfilled in life when inspired or inspiring,
I’ll say. Why stray from my safe path when safe. …I’ll strafe.

I’ll stray cos life truly begins outside your comfort zone,
Gon feel it and rest with it, anxiety’s my new home.

It’s a fact that people are inspired by my lyrics
Which are inspired by my spirits, Cosmic books and quantum physics

It’s a fact that children are inspired by my presence and playing,
Inspired by what I’ve done, inspired by what I’m saying.

It’s a fact that loads of people LOVE my music…
I’ve seen it hit the dancefloor… and watched the people lose it!

It’s a fact I get paid well to teach poetry workshops
in a state school, living room or YMCA, cool!

It’s a fact I volunteered at the Steiner school til they gave me work that pays
But they didn’t have enough cover work hours or days

It’s a fact I Represented for one of Bristol’s biggest raves –
Happy Daze
And hosted Glastonbury festival’s dance stage.

It’s a fact that I’ve been booked for huge events, supported true legends,
… And made more than a few new best friends.

Maybe I’ll be satisfied when I’ve made lots of money working all day
Inspiring people with music and children with more play.

But a short moment changes perspective, Irrespective, so I may
…as well choose to be satisfied today. Okay.

(Bridge/Chorus)
What’ll it take.. for me to stop the self-hate.
What’ll it take for me to rest with it, accept fate

What’ll it take.. for me to be satisfied.
See successes when I smiled and not the failures when I cried. X2

(OUTRO)
Love yourselves… maintain balance with extremes…
and stay focussed on fulfilling your dreams

Balance maintained… there’s nothing to balance
Destiny’s our main aim even off on our tangents.

Love yourselves…
maintain balance with extremes…
and stay focussed on fulfilling your dreams

Balance maintained… there’s nothing to balance
…our main aim’s the benefit of all. X2
