Lyrics
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY
words & music by Pete Papageorge

V1:
The sun's too hot, the winds too strong
And I've been tossed around too long
There's trouble in the promised land
How much more can one person stand?
In this time of isolation
When hope is spent in dreams
While I'm

Ch:
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY
I'm just trying to survive
I'm just glad to be alive
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY
Not an easy thing to do

V2:
Got to find the way to stand upright
Through these stress-filled days,
And restless nights
Tomorrow's just a distant blur
Where's the way back to the way we were?
Now that every law's been broken
In this life under the gun
All that's wrong is left unspoken
As if nothing's to be done
While I'm

Ch:
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY
I'm just trying to survive
I'm just glad to be alive
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY
Not an easy thing to do
I just hope I make it through
I'm no victim circumstancer
I'm a make-or-break it chancer
Givin' everything I've got in me
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY

Bridge:
I've got to keep my head, keep control
I can't allow myself to coast
Livin' through this dark age of the soul
Where are you, my holy ghost?
Where are you, my holy ghost?
While I'm

Ch:
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY
I'm just trying to survive
I'm just glad to be alive
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY
Not an easy thing to do
I just hope I make it through
I'll keep lookin' for an answer
An existential fancy dancer
Cause everything depends on me
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY
SURFIN' THE UNCERTAINTY

Story Behind the Song:
I read an article about Alan Alda. He was asked about his outlook for the future and he replied, "I'm just surfin' the uncertainty." I thought it was a brilliant phrase, and it inspired me to write this song.
