lyrics

Mamma says, "son, what you doing with your life?

Art don't feed your body. What girl will be your starving wife?"

Oh, but mamma, gotta do what makes you whole

Art don't feed your body, but it feeds your soul

Soon as you speak they ask you what you wanna be

Policeman, a ballplayer, an actor on TV

Pilot, a president, a captain's first mate

It all starts off as just a choice you make

From that point on you follow the path, avoid the cracks

They got you thinking it's a road when it's a track

Every adult twists your mind till it aches

Till you don't even realize it's them making all the choices you make

And someday you'll be sittin' alone, figuring what's at stake

Your whole life's been fixing someone else's mistakes

And all of a sudden from their dream you'll awake

And it'll be so clear now, it'll be so clear now, it'll be so clear now

It's all just a choice you make

Who you marry, your sex, peace, god, happiness

Wanna be decent or wanna be the best

If still wanna be that actor on TV well for Christ's sake

It's all just a choice you make

And someday you'll be sittin' alone, figuring what's at stake

Your whole life's been fixing someone else's mistakes

And all of a sudden from their dream you'll awake

And it'll be so clear now, it'll be so clear now, it'll be so clear now

It's all just a choice you make

Just a choice you make

Mamma says, "son, what you doing with your life?

Art don't feed your body. What girl will be your starving wife?"

Oh, but mamma, gotta do what makes you whole

Art don't feed your body, but it feeds your soul
