About this Song:
This is another song inspired by my study of personal transformation and Neuro Linguistics, Ericksonian Hypnosis and Timeline techniques.
Ultimately no one will do your change work for you. You got to roll your own rock away (or “rocks” as the case may be).
So you might want to get started today. Unless you just want to listen to the song and begin to think about getting started today, while you imagine how good it will feel to have the old “monkey” off your back… :o)
Roll Your Rock Away
Song # 332 | 6/1/03-6/4/03 | CD: Eyes On The Horizon
You could believe in Santa Clause
Yet still not believe in yourself
You could pause because
You’re afraid of your turn
In the urn on the living room shelf
You could have a brand new set of Ginsu knives
You could have more good luck than
An alley cat’s got lives
You could out deal the devil in the dark of night
While you scan the future with your second sight
But you got to roll your rock away
You could dance to the beat
Of a different drummer
While you drive down the street
In your bright red Hummer
You might look hot on the beach this summer
Or be the coolest dude in a crowd of cucumbers
You could talk a dog off a meat wagon
Convince Austin Powers to give up shagging
Or Sell snow to the city of Buffalo
As part of your own reality T.V. Show
But you got to roll your rock away.
You may have the cleanest house in Babylon
Or the best tasting salt in Gomorra
You may be the latest prophet reciting
From the Bible, the Koran,
The Wall St. Journal, or the Torah
You can get yourself a groovy guru
And a magical mantra to mutter
Or you may prefer modern scientific Voodoo
As you hit the links with your carbon fiber putter
You got to roll your rock away.
Would you dare to take my hand?
Let me show you your own Promised Land
It begins when you choose to see
Yourself the way you want to be…
(You got to roll your rock away)
You could be drowning in the desert
Thirsty in the pouring rain
You might be wondering
When someone’s gonna finally explain
Why you can lead a horse to water
You might even get him to drink
You can lead a man to knowledge
But I’ll be damned if you can make him think
He’s got to roll his own rock away
You got to roll your rock away
