Name of Song: The Rhythm of Code

Do you have a Code,
Something that you live by,
Something that you follow
To your own end.

It’s nice to live by Code,
To have a truth to live by,
A stable point of reference,
To calm your mind with why.

Your Code has its own Rhythm,
To tell you right from wrong,
To feel the good for all to see,
And keep you going strong.

Chorus
Lose your Code, lose your life,
Guaranteed you’ll live in strife,
No protections left to keep
you falling down into the deep.
Lose your Code, lose your life,
Guaranteed you’ll live in strife,
No protections left to keep
you falling down into the deep.

Bridge
Many Codes have guided us,
Forgotten ones that still make fuss,
Choosing one that’s right for now,
Needing truth not treasonous.
Having lived so many lives,
Some with loss, some with smiles,
Always strove to live a Code,
I loved its Rhythm, it had a road.
