VIOLINS

I wake to a sound unfamiliar to me  
The sway of the trees in a warm spring breeze
Screens on the windows, fish in the streams
Winding dirt paths lead down to the seas
But it must come to an end
The world waits for me
Strange, violent noises - People faking poses - Worn out faded roses
All run amuck with greed

Every now and again - it ends in reinvention
Most hope with intention, but it's not always the way
Earth spins round again - someone failed to mention
The strict attention that must be paid to today

It leads a man to think.........

The world should hear more violins - more orchestra pieces
We all need less violence- more who know what peace is
Like the sounds you hear in springtime - all the things our parents teach us
Brings it back to just one thing

The world needs more violins

I walk the streets the world paved for me
Grateful for the peace and serenity
I am finally able to achieve
But the worlds not with me, they're not happy
It all must come to an end
Or say goodbye to society

Every now and again - I play back yesterday
Not the terrible days, the one's that made me think
About mistakes I made - a love that failed to take
Every motion that I made brought me here today

It always stop and think.........

The world should hear more violins - more orchestra pieces
We all need less violence - more who know what peace is
Like the sounds you hear in springtime - all the things our parents teach us
Brings it back to just one thing
The world needs more violins

THE WORLD IS SMARTER THAN YOU

You have it all figured out; yeah you got this now
It's something you tell yourself, you'll never say what's true
The World Is Smarter Than You

Until you are 22; yeah, with all that you've been through
You've heard all the crowd cheers and boos
Stayed out late, drank a shit ton of booze; kept your nose clean too
The World Is Smarter Than You

Until you are 33, yeah, life's no mystery dude
You finally made some money; shacked up with a honey; maybe had a family too
Or watched it all fall through.......still it's true
The World Is Smarter Than You

Until you are 44, had an ex love and lots more
Tired of kicking open doors; added a few more greys for sure
Is life still in front or is it all just behind you
The World Is Smarter Than You

Until you are 55, and you've started to realize
What to call a prize and how to do it all right 
But all you've been through; oh how you've been screwed
All snatched from your view, had it all in front of you with a view
The World Is Smarter Than You

Until you are 66, rocking in a chair, watching your kids kids
You often look back to the way you chose to live
What's left to do?  Still nothing to learn new? 
The World Is Smarter Than You

Until you are 77, or whether you're 11, is The World Still Smarter Than You?
Whether you hold a dark death wish or a fast pass to heaven
The world's got a step on you
Love as you go, set goals to learn & grow
At the end you will know
