Gil Scott-Heron Quote: “If you’re supposed to be doing…”

If you’re supposed to be doing something, the spirits will come and help you. They have helped me out with lines I shouldn’t have known, chords I shouldn’t have known. Every once in a while I get lines from somewhere, and I think, I better write this down.
