Liner Notes: 

I saw someone else here had a title 'if we could change the world, we wouldn't' and thought- that's a great opening line. I deliberatly didn't see that person's lyrics or hear the recording, and wanted to write something independant. (hope ya don't mind, james!)

anyway, after the optimism of the last song i did (about the cave resuce in thailand).. it's.. back to a little negativity and darkness! (not a permanent mood or anything, but hey, its nice to get all sides out, right?)

so this is kind of exaggerated, perhaps, but.. in another way, maybe not really? a sort of 'darkness of human nature comment'?

quick iPhone recording, one take- and a quick song! maybe needs a bridge or another verse? or is this long enough?

Lyrics: 

If we could change the world, we wouldn’t
Because we can and we refuse
We all talk about freedom and justice
But we live in the world we choose

What would you give up?
To feed the masses
Would you remove
the rose-colored glasses

we are all spoiled prima donna bitches
worrying about all our little riches
stepping over people lying in ditches
oh excuse me, I’m just running late
“hope everything is going just great”

If we could redistribute wealth, like magic
Would we give up our possessions and things
Who among us would live as a pauper
If you started out as a king?

What would you give up?
To end the madness
Too many people
Trapped in sadness

we are all spoiled prima donna bitches
worrying about all our little riches
stepping over people lying in ditches
oh excuse me, I’m just running late
“hope everything is going just great”

(c) M. Skliar (first line by james)
