Marty, Where you going?

March has been keeping me behind the proverbial 8-ball.  So in lieu of new content, I thought I'd post some lyrics.  It's a long song, but I'll bold the parts that stick out to me.  If you are Marty or know someone like him, please see this free advice to 18-25 year old males.

Marty where you going? Whatcha going to?
Whats the point in not conforming if it changes you?
When this world runs out of answers would you even know?
Does the truth have any bearing on which way you go?

He took the bus to Santa Cruz, he hitchkhiked to LA
A preacherman picked him up and drove him half the way
He said theres two kinds of people that I've met:
Those who ask the questions and those who dont ask questions yet
Then he turned asking Marty which one that he thought he was
Marty shrugged and shook his head forgetting what the question was

You'd do almost almost anything someone told you not to do
Just because someone else told you it was cool
Remember long ago when someone said to get a life
Did you ever think they might be right?

Marty was a rebel never had a cause
It may be stupid and cliche but thats because he was
He spent his whole life straying from the norm
He was neither hot or cold just boring and lukewarm
It didnt seem to bother him he didnt seem to mind
His cathartic life just buried somewhere in the timeline
