    Hedonist Blues

    I've embraced a new philosophy, that sets free
    The shame we're taught to feel I've now released
    It's not for others to define
    Their narrow burdens are not mine
    Or their hypocritical beliefs, they've ceased

    The moral crime
    Would be to fall in line

    There are countless pleasures to pursue, pursue
    Yet the years we're given are too few, too few
    Shrug off doubt, step up, and seize this day, this day
    And take it in before it slips away, away

    Where instinct and imagination goes, who knows
    But where it leads, I'm sure to follow close
    The sex, the arts, the sights and sounds
    Profane to sacred, all that surrounds
    I'll search all avenues till they're exposed, exposed

    To guide this lust
    In passion I will trust

    There are countless pleasures to pursue, pursue
    Yet the years we're given are too few, too few
    Shrug off doubt, step up, and seize this day, this day
    And take it in before it slips away, away

    Simple content is not enough
    The volume expelled must be turned up
    It must be stressed
    There are no fond regrets

    There are countless pleasures to pursue, pursue
    Yet the years we're given are too few, too few
    Shrug off doubt, step up, and seize this day, this day
    And take it in before it slips away, away...
