about

This fingerpicking, world music influenced piece has Jon G. sharing one of his favorite affirmations, and reminding folks that everyone can, everyone is willing, and everyone is able, despite forces that try and convince us otherwise.

lyrics

System done messed up, let’s do something new
I can I will I’m able to do
They say the dude’s views is so askew
But to me it seems the consumer is just getting consumed
So to the old life and me: I bid adieu
I saw the light, born anew
I was subdued with accrued misconstrued taboos
To undo I had to overdo
I sat back in a moment of clarity
Basked in that shit and lost all severity
Cause once you see disparity and yet the similarity
Realities a fabric of hilarity
All is one and one need not count
And there ain’t one thing that you can’t surmount
Your alright now, I promise you
You can, you will, you’re able to do

I can I will I’m able
No Myths, no fairytales, no fables

How bout we teach how to live
How bout we teach how to love
How bout we teach how to give
How bout we teach how to breathe

How bout we teach how to live
How bout we teach how to love
How bout we teach how to give
How bout we teach how breathe

I can I will I’m able,
I can, I’m human, I’m willing and able
Bringing valid things to every table
Thoroughbred even when asleep in a stable
Haaay the revolution’s not on cable
They profit off making us crazy and stable
Appealing to the parts of us that like to label
Stressed out day one in the hospital cradle
But in spirit there ain’t no salary caps
Religion’s result based
Cuz now im relaxed,
Breathing 9 counts in, 9 counts out
Good eats in, lyrical feats out
Getting in the women sinning digging them out
Respectfully though, cuz that’s what living’s about
Confucius say do this, Shiva say do that
Hippies give me crystals, thugs say to stay strapped
Country folk make food
City folk make beats
Jon G’s a foot soldier
Pushing positive qi

And guess what it’s all free
