Hey all! Hope the weather is as good where you are as it is where I am. The pollen has been whippin my hind end as of late but the rain washed some of it away and I can now breathe through ONE of my nostrils!
Anywho, today I was walking around the woods pondering the stuff I normally ponder about while surrounded by Civil War statues and the like, and I sat down on a stump and wrote this song. I hope you enjoy it:)
It is the way it is
It’s always been this way
Sometimes the sky is blue
Sometimes the sky is gray
It ain’t some fabled curse
As far as I can figure
The world ain’t gettin worse
We just see too many pictures
People still all suck
The way they sucked before
Bumper stickers on a truck
Used to say “F*ck Albert Gore!”
It ain’t nothing new
Reckon why you don’t remember?
It’s cause you didn’t have your phone
And there weren’t that many pictures
Now it don’t mean that we can’t try
To make the world a little better
While the desert gets more dry
And the ice caps all get wetter
But when you think that we’re all doomed
I’d just like you to remember
We’ve been doomed a bunch before
There just weren’t that many pictures
Have a great rest of your day, and expect more from me this week. ❤️
I love it. (And I always wanted to start a podcast called "Things Were Always Awful (You Just Didn't Hear About 'Em)" - sounds like this would be a perfect theme song.
There are pictures from times when things were rough and the world seemed about to end. Many of them show us working to find a way out of a mess or a war. Today the photos only show how divided we are. I love what you wrote.
