Comes a Time

There comes a time in everyone’s life,
in your life, in mine..
where once there was great hope
for the day to come so bright in the morning

We would wait all night
for the Sun to rise
with new hope
it brings like candy

we thought everything was just dandy
no matter what we did we smiled
upon this planet we were put
to make things better for us all

not really thinking we might fall
into deadly sins of greed and progress
we just know that changes are here
to make and share for all eternity

we could see the beauty of the world
our lives we thrust upon this Earth
with blood sweat and tears we cry
we would try with all our might

to see the stars so distant the light
how they twinkle and fade as you watch
then slowly turn away , yet somehow
you wish they would stay

with us into the bright new day
we watch our hopes fade away
No reason to worry at mid day
why they fade and cannot stay

we just know that changes are here
the same for all eternity
we watch our hopes fade away
knowing nothing gold can stay

yet as dusk reminds us all
that soon it’s time for us to fall
into earths grace we put
our hands so wrought with dollar bills

we fence off things we don’t want lost
keep for ourselves what we bought
all hope gone now for things we thought
We were so young then as a new morning

when the Sun shines so bright
things seem so right
so strong we think
nothing can make things go wrong

with no warning fall comes to ground
all storm warning
new ground I’ve found

To plow fields over
no mist upon the morning clover
paper mills feed trees to money
no more bears to drink the honey

sunshine fades to evenings disgrace
while men toil in Earths place
all hope gone now we turn our face
wait for the night to come

take our place with master charge
ring up bills we cannot pay
tear our lives with a paper shredder
we count the change with I.O.U.’s

we cannot cash it’s all just trash
like stars in the night that twinkle to fade
to measure our worth we give ourselves
to ledgers and bills in some “bank”

and save our lives by taking pills

So lost in the plight we call these lives
we cling to paper we color with crayons
handing out bills like pieces of fortune
no time left to worry about promotion

soon the night comes to take you away
back to the time of darkness you’ll say
but still in the blackness you see
twinkling stars now so bright

Hope rises for us all
in evenings light before we fall
into oblivion from where we come
we hand out hope to one and all

like candy from our pockets we throw
pieces of hope we have for all
