We got tall buildings but shorter tempers,
Wide Freeways, narrow viewpoints.
We spend more money, but got less real things
We got bigger houses but have smaller families,
More conveniences, but less time with them
We have more degrees but less common senses
Got more knowledge, but less judgment
We think we’re experts, yet have more problems
Take more drugs, but feel more badness.
We spend too reckless, laugh too little,
Drive too fast, let anger control us
Stay up too late, get up too tired,
Read too little, watch to much TV,
We don’t listen but talk too easy
Make a good living, but not a good life.
We’ve added more years then we die to crabby.
Been to the moon and back, conquered outer space
We’ve done large things, but have so little peace.
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted our minds.
We’ve conquered the atom, but forget to be kind
We plan more, accomplish less, always in a rush,
Can’t even wait for just one late bus
Build more computers to hold more stuff
Always complaining that we don’t have enough
Steep profits but shallow relationships.
We worry more but pray much less
Two incomes but more break ups
Can’t understand I think I need to give up
These are days of quick trips, and fornicate
Lay lady lay and throwaway babies
We need a solution we need a answer
Someone told me I’d find it in scripture
Spend some time with the ones you love
Say a kind word give a warm hug
Do a kind thing for someone in need
Say, ‘I love you’ and do a kind deed
Life isn’t measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
