Good times gone, and you missed them
What's gone wrong in your system?
Things they bounce like a Spaulding
What'd you think, did you miss your calling?
It's so free, this kind of feeling
It's like life, it's so appealing
When you've got so much to say it's called gratitude
And that's right

Good times gone but you feed it
Hate's grown strong, you feel you need it
Just one thing, do you know you?
What you think, that the world owes you?
What's gonna set you free?
Look inside and you'll see
When you've got so much to say it's called gratitude
And that's right

    General CommentThis song is so awesome & different from anything else-it stands alone. It is it's own genre. Seriously! Name another song that has this much going on & still sound this good. Can't be done. There are a few unclassifiable songs on this album. Gratitude was one of the Beasties singles that didn't make it into the mainstream. If you wanted to see the video for this song you had to stay up late on a Sunday night & watch Mtv's 120 Minutes. And it was probably only played there a couple of times. Truly a forgotten single that never found it's audience. They should put it in that new Star Trek movie the way they used Sabotage in the first one! That would be pretty kick ass.
