What a Shame
Lyrics
News turn to stories make you numb to ever care
Lots of drama, lots of fear, lots of shock to share
Opinion sold to feed the souls comforted by pain
For those who told you so and make others insane

Middle ages paranoia comforted by rage
You're prescribed a little pill or put in a cage
Did Santa bring you toys when you were a child?
Now you know better, you always ask why

Oh! What a shame
Oh! What a shame
Can't be clever no more

Moments turn to minutes and hours to days
You think real hard but there is no other way
You're in a body, in a world somehow is yours
Or is it really, as you compromise some more

Love is the most important thing, a cliche you always hear
Like bein' right with God cause' he is everywhere
Use your life to think too much before you grow old
You'll confuse your heart n' mind for your soul

Oh! What a shame
Oh! What a shame
Can't be clever no more

Oh! What a shame
Oh! What a shame
Can't be clever no more
