The Endless Note

What Is Life?

It is a great theological question to which I have no answers on so many levels, HOWEVER, I do know that it is the title of a great song by “The Burns Unit” from their 2010 album “Side Show”

“What Is Life?” – The Burns Unit

WHAT IS LIFE?
WHY AM I HERE?
WHO AM I?
DID I DESERVE THIS?
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME, MY LIFE?

WHAT IS LIFE…

OH I CAN’T RUN AWAY FROM TIME
MY TIME WILL COME TO END IT
WITH A GUN SHOT AND A KISS
OH I CAN’T RUN AWAY FROM TIME
MY TIME WILL COME TO END ME
WILL I HIT OR WILL I MISS?

SICK OF TELEVISION TELLING ME WHAT TO DO
TELLING YOU WHAT YOU THINK IS GOOD
JUST ANOTHER LIE OR A PILL FOR A FOOL
SICK OF TELEVISION TELLING ME WHAT TO DO
TELLING YOU WHAT YOU THINK IS GOOD
A NEW MIND TO BREED FIRE TO FUEL

WHAT IS LIFE…
WHAT IS LIFE…

NO TEACHER TELLING YOU WHAT TO DO
WITH YOUR LIFE MAN WHAT’S IT TO YOU
NEVER TAUGHT THAT MIND WAS A TOOL
NO TEACHER TELLING YOU WHAT TO DO
WITH YOUR LIFE MAN WHAT’S IT TO YOU
WISE MEN ARE SO TREATED LIKE FOOLS

SEE THEM PEOPLE GET DA-RUM
SEE THEM FEAR AND WATCH THEM RUN
WEAPON IS THE LACK OF EDUCATION NOT A GUN
SEE THEM PEOPLE GET DA-RUM
SEE THEM FEAR AND WATCH THEM RUN
KEEP FROM YOUTH AND WATCH THEIR LIFE BURN

WHAT IS LIFE…
WHAT IS LIFE…

As a bonus the great reggae group Black Uhuru also released a song of the same name.
