If to the facts you turn a deaf ear
And instead of taking action you sit on your rear
Then don’t bitch about life if you offer no solutions
Because denial and complacency are social pollution
There’s so much more than birth, school, work and death
And time is passing with every single breath
You can rot with the TV or ponder under stars
It’s really up to you if your life will take you far.
How you feel, what you think, and the actions that you take
With every choice, it’s your future that you make
You can let your garden waste or draw across the rake
To take away the weeds of need and of freedom partake
If you look out for number one you’re sure to be alone
And all this time you wonder why you have reasons to bitch and moan
A giving hand and forgiving heart will bring you many friends
Who will just as soon fly away if you seek for your own ends
Each person is your mirror, your reflection there to see
The reason you dislike them, are they not of thee?
If within these words you can find no lasting truth
Then one day you might find yourself with wailing voice and gnashing tooth.
