Lyrics:

I've been having a hard time trying to justify. The clouds arising from the cars we drive. And a little too easy seems just a little too hard today. I'm afraid my children are going to have to watch the world waste away. Waste away!

Been having a hard time trying to accept the fact: Paying money for four walls leaves the slavery intact! And a little too easy seems just a little too hard today I'm afraid my children are going to have to watch the world slip away. Slip away!

And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know life has become slavery. I know, I know, I know, I know, life has become slavery. I know, I know, I know, I know, life has become slavery! Costs two dollars a minute and additional charges to pray to god today. See I've been looking for some guidance but the voice on the phone ain't got a damn thing to say! And a little too easy seems just a little too hard today. I'm afraid my children are going to have to watch the world fade away. Fade away!

I was born a little too late to see the dream that they call “America”. See I only want to be a free man but it's against the law to sleep on the ground in god’s land! And a little too easy seems just a little bit insane! I'm afraid I'm going to have to run for my life one of these days. One of these days!

One of these days! And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know life has become slavery! I know, I know, I know, I know life has become slavery! I know, I know, I know, I know life has become slavery! The ground is my body, it's been poisoned with lead and junk food and toxic waste. The sky is my mind it's been clouded with cigarettes and fluorocarbons and petroleum distillates. The water's my heart, it's been broken with booze and drugs and shooting up paste. The sun is my spirit, it belongs to all of us, I guess we're all one sick race! Just one sick race!

And autonomy shall reward itself with freedom! And humility shall reward itself with peace! And the dissolution of possession and the integration of humanity Shall bring forth a sharing of our responsibility For our lives! For our earth! For our lives! For our earth!
