From the recording Did They Die In Vain
Everything’s changing, and I don’t know why
Life is getting stranger with so few rules to live by
Now everything seems to be coming apart
I guess now nothing equals nothing from the mind to the heart
As children, we were taught the golden rule
But now that rule no longer has a place in the schools
The world we knew is now smoke rising in the air
But whoever said that life was fair?
Once upon a time what you heard was mostly true
But now the news is opinion; oh, what’s a person to do?
It’s all in how you see things; how you want life to be
It seems one person’s freedom is another’s misery
By the time it’s all over, I’ll be too old to know
I worry not for me, but where do the children go?
Yes, whoever said that life was fair?
