Wise men say, "Do your own thing"
And "Men must do what men must do."
Wiser words were never spoken
and none were ever more untrue.
"Stand on your own two feet"
and "You must follow your own heart"
is what your friends will tell you
but they're leaving out a part.
The path less traveled looks so noble
when they point to it and smile.
I can assure its not that way
once you've walked the path a while.
For friends and wise men will not tell you
in their wise collective drone
that if you walk unbeaten paths
you'll be walking them alone.
After all, they are less traveled.
No one really knows the way
so when you're on that lonely path
no one will have a thing to say.
