What I Know
Rebelution Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Destination unknown but I had this vision
In my minds eye
This is my decision
Every single dream every single fantasy every single love every single enemy
It's all for me
Do you believe that you can change the world?
Do you believe that you can change the world?

Freedom of speech freedom of truth your freedom to do
What the fuck you heart wants you to do it's all for you
Lifestyles of the rich and the famous
Is it all a dream or can you obtain it
Everybody seems to be selling out their souls for the fame
We fucking love sex drugs and rock and roll
Maybe one day we will realize
That the answers in our heart
But were killing our own lives
And it's tearing us apart
One life to live gonna make it positive
For this world that we live in
This is my decision

Time for me to make to make it on my own now
Here I go watch me go where I go now
I don't know what road I'm gonna go down
All I know is what I know and what I know now

So I'm tired of the questions I'm tired of second guessing
Everyday of my life is just another lesson
Don't know what I'm destined for my life is a mess and
All I want to do is get out and fly
But I sit and I trip fucking life wanna quit
But I can't and I won't here I am all alone
Another day another dollar
No money in my pocket
I walk over to the mic turn it on
Time to rock it
This is my version of a sermon
Straight from my heart I will spill every word and
All I wanna do is live a life that's certain
To find the love that I've been searching for

Time for me to make to make it on my own now
Here I go watch me go where I go now
I don't know what road I'm gonna go down
All I know is what I know and what I know now

Time for me to make to make it on my own now
Here I go watch me go where I go now
I don't know what road I'm gonna go down
All I know is what I know and what I know now
Time for me
Time for me

Every song I write comes from the depths of my soul


All I wanna do is live a life that's certain
I want to have purpose and live a fulfilling life


To find the love that I've been searching for
I'm seeking genuine love and connection in my life
