Philosophy Of The Common People


                   The eventual lot that happens to the common and the poor

                   Is the conclusion of the famous and wealthy just the same

                   For beyond the basic necessities of comfort to survive

                   We in truth feel no better no matter how much it is we gain

                   And though our record is one of war and rumor of war

                   It makes no common sense to continue along this same path

                   Whether we believe God or science or not much of either

                   All evidence of history clearly states our souls need a bath

                   We can swear within our head that we can help ourselves

                   And that for our spec of a planet there could be no savior

                   But no matter how careful and often our educatorís twist a lie

                   They canít seem to find much of a cure for our bad behavior

                   In between the sunrise and sunset of lifeís brief breath

                   We daily choose to help or to hurt our fellow man

                   And though it is probable we wonít solve every dilemma

                   It is also true we must strive to do what we can

                   Thereís a warning coming down from the Father of lights

                   With whom there is no variance or shadow of turning

                   Win or lose we all must choose who it is we will serve

                   For waiting is a heaven of paradise and hell fires burning
