"Watch it Go" as written by Bruce Cockburn and Pd Traditional....
Step right up and come right in.
(with this last gasp)
Feel the rus to take it all in.
Know the strain of imposed ideals,
living life like one should.

Forced with this, daunting at best.
Is this how I measure success?
It's so easy
to forget so quickly.
This misconception
of always being in need.
So tempting,
are we ever satisfied?

Buy distraction
from a simple life,
the one you didn't know
that you never wanted.

Discontented with who we are
and suddenly it's now your fault.
Society's greatest trick:
making them worth more
while they help make you feel worthless and weak.

Buy distraction
from a simple life,
the one you didn't know
that you never wanted.
