Rhymes For Our Times
How can you expect to live?
If you only take, and you never give
What is it that you see?
That makes you think you’re better then me
Is it the way we dress or look?
Did you read something in a book?
Are you a man at all?
Or just another Neanderthal
Living just a primal role
Never stopping to pay the toll
Don’t forget, as you sew
So shall you reap
Life is a gift that you cannot keep
If you want to sleep tight
You have to treat the sheep right
I’m not exactly crazy
Can’t say I’m lazy
I see things you don’t
I do things you won’t
What makes you think, what you think?
What do you like to drink?
Do you know what to do?
Or are you waiting for Simon
Are you chasing life?
Or waiting for a diamond
Are you the dog or the ball?
Only you can make the call
Don’t need a ship to make a battle
Don’t need a snake to make a rattle
Don’t need a cow to make milk
Don’t need a spider to make silk
Don’t need wars to fuel our cars
Don’t need to spend money on exploring mars
Lots we have to do right here
Right here in our atmosphere
Lots of people making sin
Lots of people trying to win
