Name of Song: Preparing for Death

It came on so slowly,
The aging just grew,
After 30 like usual,
And you think that it’s you.

A body does age,
A being does not,
‘Cause body’s are matter,
And tie us in knots.

Chorus
Dying is sad,
And truly alone,
Our body was a friend
Since its always been home.
______

We used to eat different,
‘Cause we lived off the land,
We naturally ate better,
Pumped our water by hand.

The air was much cleaner,
The laboratories were nil,
Much harder to poison
Our people at will.

Chorus
Dying is sad,
And truly alone,
Our body was a friend
Since its always been home.
______

Aging was different,
Although people lived less,
Many remedies from nature,
Very few drugs at best.

Rehabbing a body,
Repairing its joints,
Calming its nerves,
Even try some anoints.

Chorus
Dying is sad,
And truly alone,
Our body was a friend
Since its always been home.
______

And they need all our love,
More than sex, more than food,
They rely on our being,
Though at times seem so kool.

When they get old,
When they tire out,
It can be too late
To bring healing about.

But if you just try,
To better their health,
They just love being human,
And measuring their wealth.

Chorus
Dying is sad,
And truly alone,
Our body was a friend
Since its always been home.

Dying is sad,
And truly alone,
Our body was a friend
Since its always been home.

Dying is sad,
And truly alone,
Our body was a friend
Since its always been home.
