And the sight of the sun, rising, seems to
Invalidate the words of the man so much
wiser than myself
Tells me how to work my life away, so that
I may someday
Die, knowing that I compromised
My intentions, and let my dreams turn to
dust and fade away
leaving nothing, just so I can say
I’ve been a good boy mamma, played the
part that I was assigned
Never questioned anything, never stepped
out of line
But it’s been eighteen years now
Of having my intentions drilled in the
It’s been too many years now
Of having my dreams beaten down
I remember all the crazy dreams we had
when we were younger
All ending finalized, by the prospect of
working 9 to 5
And we believed it then, and we believe it
now, but now I’m so much stronger
And I just can’t see how we can sell
ourselves short any longer
It don’t mean much, much to me
I’m content, Human Being
