  Artist List   /   Peter Furler   /   On Fire


06. All In Your Head

On Fire
by Peter Furler


you wait / for the moment, like a watershed / when all youíve heard and all youíve read / will push you toward your call // and you wait / the years ahead seem infinite / thereís plenty of time to figure it out / and then youíll give your all // but you stall / and you stall // get up / get off your seat / move your feet / just do what He said / itís all in your head / it itís all in your head // forgetting whatís behind / nowís the time to / go where your led / itís all in your head / itís all in your head // you wait / you nod your head and take some notes / and cash your checks and cast your votes / and follow protocol // and you wait / another verse, another song / a sinking sense youíve got it wrong / you stumble and you stall / and you stall / until thatís all // you wait / you save your best for last / you wait / and then the momentís passed // whatcha waiting for? / Godís holding the door for you / where ya hiding out? / thereís so much more for you / if you need a prompt / Heís draining the swamp for you / ready with a push / with a shove / with a kick of love // press on / press on for the prize / it lies up ahead / it lies up ahead / it lies up ahead // forgetting whatís behind / nowís the time to / go where your lead / itís all in your head / itís all in your head

Behind the Song:
'With a pulsing bass line fronting the melody, this song breaks hard at the chorus, painting a musical picture all-too perfect for lyrics about what happens when independent humans spend too much time analyzing and plotting and theorizing and stalling and strategizing and waiting to do what we already know weíre supposed to do. A clever Furleresque and much-needed reminder to just get on with it... ďto forget whatís behind and go where youíre led.Ē' - Melissa Riddle Chalos
