Album
Name of Song: Stressing your body

The way things were,
The way things are,
Not much different
except for trinkets and cars.

Progress – ha!
More crime in the streets,
Talk to any cop
who walks their own beat.

So many humans
in loss and debt,
Difficult to see
a way out of their mess.

Chorus
The way things were,
The way things are,
Stressing your body
as money raises the bar.
What happened to humans,
Where did they go,
Their Greatness continues
as it hides but still grows.

What do you need
to really live life,
Learn this now quickly
so to prevent future strife.
Born from confusion
Order will reign,
But hard to adapt when
when things look all the same.

to really live life,
Learn to adapt

Born from confusion
Order will reign,
Can be hard to adapt
when things look all the same.
