The Way It Goes

Wrote this today.  I really wish I could make the sounds I heard in my head while writing this a reality, but in lieu of that,  until such time as that becomes possible – here are the words.

 

Damn, look at that – they’re at it again

Seems as though this madness isn’t ever gonna end

It can’t be only greed that is the culprit

The hate is being spewed at them now straight out of the pulpit

All these institutions where the hatred is enshrined

No one seems to notice that the world has lost its mind

The crazy is now nearly universal

Mindlessly they soak it up like some insane commercial

 

Is there hope

I don’t know

Maybe they’ll get turned around

Before the sucker blows

Is there hope

Maybe so

If they don’t we’ll shrug and say

Well that’s the way it goes

 

There’s no making sense out of the nonsense

The mass of crazy grown and now its gravity’s intense

You’ll never wrap your head around all of the insanity

There’s no end to the bottomless depths of human inhumanity

Where’s the hope of spreading any wisdom

If anytime it’s spoken it’s shouted down that it is dumb

If they can’t find a way to stop this madness

They’ll live their short and hateful lives immersed in total sadness

 

Is there hope

I don’t know

Maybe they’ll get turned around

Before the sucker blows

Is there hope

Maybe so

If they don’t we’ll shrug and say

Well that’s the way it goes
