Song Lyrics… maybe… “Why?”

February 8, 2012

As some of you may know, I like to mess around with poetry and potential song lyrics, and post them here from time to time… Here’s one inspired by some research into my hero, John Lennon:

WHY?

Why the need for hunger?

Why the need for war?

Why the need for greed?

I don’t need it any more!

I don’t need the stuff they advertise.

I don’t need the shit they serve.

It’s time for evolution, man,

They can eat what they deserve!

Why the need for homelessness?

Why the need for war?

Why the need for speed?

I don’t want it any more!

I don’t want the stuff on billboards.

I don’t want what’s on TV.

It’s time for revolution, man,

It’s time that we were free!

Why the need for sickness?

Why the need for war?

Why the need to lead us?

I don’t need it any more!

I don’t need the lies you tell me.

I don’t need your ‘do-ray-me’.

It’s time to live in freedom,

I just want to live as ‘me’!
