The Right Wrongs

The right wrongs and the wrong rights have been on our mind

It doesn't matter who or what they are, they're there all the time

From the letter a to the letter z, it's about them, about you, about me

We break them, fake them, hate them, make them and take them you see.

 

With them, with you, with me, or without, we don't really know

It's hard to live a life while always pondering and worrying so

If I do, if I don't, if I will, if I won't, oh the pressures, the strain

Am I happy, am I sad, am I good, am I bad, it boggles the brain.

 

People, sides, and turns, past, present, and future to come

Will I live, will I die, will I go to pieces, will I survive a rerun

Found them and lost them, lost them and found them once more

Do I crawl out the upstairs window, do I walk out the front door.

 

Do we stop to smell the roses, or crush them beneath our feet.

Sit on a bench in the shade or not, because we'll cut down a tree

Drink the water made because filth flows up and down the streams

Breath the air filtered because the factories throw dust on our dreams.

 

What could be, and should be, and would be, if we but wanted

Is going, going, gone, or else it's standing there haunted

An empty heart, a mind, a soul, and body, wanting to shout

Not showing it, we were hiding it, but we cried out loud.

 

The signs and the stars, the boards and the cards, said go this way

But with rabbits feet, lucky charms, and horseshoes, we stay

The blood, sweat and tears pour freely from our watery eyes

As we wonder if we've been living truths, or have we been living lies.

 

The right wrongs and the wrong rights have been on our mind

It doesn't matter who or what they are, they're there all the time

From the letter a to the letter z, it's about them, about you, about me

We break them, fake them, hate them, make them and take them you see.
