Times Like This

(Michael Georgiades, Le Roy Marinell, Pat Robinson)



I was watching the world dying, in between innings on CNN
All caught up in the circumstances, the litigation, leading to the end
On the other side of innocence, lies the lure of a bittersweet kiss
You learn to appreciate your friendships
In times like this

Now the snakes are out on the trail, they're all hissing about shaking things up
They got one hand in your pocket while they promise to fill the other one up
On the present side of what used to be
Sometimes it's good to reminisce
You'd better pay attention to the details
In times like this

Maybe we should take a walk
We got so much to say
But what's there to talk about anyway?

You can get down on your knees but they'll still do you, for a lousy buck
It does no good to plead to the sandman when he says that your time is up
You can gamble on the market, bet on the horses, easy money is hard to resist
But you'd better bring home something
In times like this

Maybe we should take a walk
There's so much to see
But we've already seen it all
Haven't we?

You leave people to their own devises, they usually do their best
Some are self-indulgent, some are suckers, some are just a mess
No one said it would be easy, was it Leary or Keasy who said
"More is more and less is less "
There's always more than meets the eye here
In times like this
Always more than meets the eye here
In times like this
