Name of Song: Other peoples’ Moral Codes

You have one,
She has one,
He has one.
They have one.

Why do we each have one?,
Why are they not the same?,
You expect the same in families,
Welcome to expectations of name.

So what really is a moral code,
How do they come about,
Experience plays a major part,
And loss and pain and doubt.

Chorus
Our world revolves continually
on moral codes that roar,
Our tumultuous existence
leans on moral codes galore.
Our world revolves continually
on moral codes that roar,
Our tumultuous existence
leans on moral codes galore.

You spend your life unsticking
from useless moral codes,
Eventually you form your own
and so that’s how life goes.
