I am just a simple man
in the most complicated of ways
With a basic thinking complexed mind
that’s often led astray
I worry about the things I cannot change
Don’t change the things I can!
Just a complicated simple man that’s never had a plan…
Just get by day to day
always grateful for my pay
Yet it is my freedom that I truly crave
Delude myself everyday
that I am not the system’s slave
knowing deep down that is a lie
I just don’t see the chains!
For I am the world’s most simple man
on the road again…
Maybe a little complicated, mixed-up, mad?
Aboard my train of pain
I know deep down inside my soul
There’s a regular bunch of guys
very slowly drowning
as they swim against the tide
Writing poems of nonsense
When their brains are fried……..
