The Lives We Lead (2000)

By James Moats in Asheville, NC

of course you want more and you don't want to earn it
you only want someone to blame
the ride thus far has been free of speed bumps
you don't know what you're in for

i've killed you at least a thousand times
and you sit back and smile all the same
with your life and your times and a whole other life
consider yourself lucky today

a crisp new dollar that bares your face
and the definition is greed
take your time and invest it well
your life is a total waste

how is the family the room and board
i'm sure that the unemployment's been hard
how is the family the room and board
i'm sure that the unemployment's been hard on you

i have said my goodbyes and the world would not miss you
you're only as real as you are
so next time you look in the mirror and smile
be glad that you made it this far
