lyrics

Everybody's into their own thing
They only care about what's it it for me
Everybody's into their own thing
Not a thought about posterity

Seems you find it hard to step back
and see the world as a whole
(the only one you think exists is your lost soul)
I wish that I could make clear
that all the things that I do
are not about only me
but they're for you too

Everybody's into their own thing
They only care about what's it it for me
Everybody's into their own thing
Not a thought about posterity

You've been telling me you lost hope
so now you're out for yourself
(but that really means you'll be like everyone else)
No you won't give of yourself
unless there's some return
What happened to the good fight
You say you got burned


I think it's time that your lameass
starts to again give a fuck
(like you used to back before your heart got stuck)
The world that you're so down on
doesn't have a prayer
until more people like you
start to show up there

Everybody's into their own thing
They only care about what's it it for me
Everybody's into their own thing
Not a thought about posterity

(We're all into our own thing)

I don't know what to do anymore, I try to lead by example

(We insist on our own thing)

Seems everything I do, it's just not ample

(The main thing that matters, our own thing)

My good intentions, you're always tryin to trample

(We're all into our own thing)

I give ya everything I got, I tell ya - here's a sample


Everybody's into their own thing
They only care about what's it it for me
Everybody's into their own thing
Not a thought about posterity


C'mon now folks, let's sing it!
Not together of course, maybe on your own?

There used to be a little thing they called unity,
but apparantly that bird has long flown

Remember when people used to talk about changin the world,
and the things that mattered?

Now we're all so independent, all our hopes and dreams are scattered

My own thing
My own thing

Everybody's into their own thing
They only care about what's it it for me
Everybody's into their own thing
Not a thought about posterity

If anyone combines the spirit of Evel Knievel with Dylan, Johnny Rotten and Neil Young, it's Scott. If anyone is close to being the Internet Dylan, FT is the one.- Flametop Fred
