Adulthood pulls me from my adolesence
Its responsibilities wring my brain
The cogs turn in recognition
Find the job
Now it's not so easy
Even if you have the goods
the work isn't so great
The hours get cut
because people have lost more than their moneys worth
And so moneys worth becomes less
Wages are decreased
Work is malnourished
Life is slowly dying
What happened to the days
Where you could feed your family for a buck and a half
Where we worked together to help each other
and took the kids out on the weekend
On a months vaccation
travelling across the country
and teaching them of nature and history
Now some kids are lucky if dad comes home from work
If mum can afford to work just four days a week
And parents are lucky
if they can afford not to cry
Now there is a dollar symbol everywhere
Technology has changed the countries face
It was thought for the good
But for some
its seen as a partial death on our land
What happened to the old days
Where people used to meet at Chucks or Rosies
Where diners were full
and cherry coke was the thing
Knowledge is power
Development has saved us
from ourselves
from death and sickness
from overbearing racism
It's good and it's bad
Technology gave me the medicine to live
but sometimes I wonder if it's worth it
