Lyrics

Today
by Greg Englesson

Today Today Today Today

Lying there, lying, lying in bed
staring at the ceiling above
don’t want to move this flesh and bones
my soul seems to give it a shove
I get up on the wall side of the bed
bounce off and stumble down the hall
I have a cup of coffee and some stale bread
then I make all my phony phone calls

Today Today Today Today
I fell into a whirling world of confused complacency
Today Today
I heard a Jet plane rumble by the sky I can not see
Today Today Today Today

The lawn mowers’ mowing the growing lawn
and the weed whackers whacking the weeds
the birds stop singing they In't singing their songs
as they watch way up in the trees
The oil truck grinds on down it’s gears
come to make a delivery
I take the bill, crack a big tall beer
I dream dazed with possibilities

Today Today Today Today
I Take out my prescription for the subscription to the insane pane in my brain
Today Today
I board up my heart as I watch them start to claim to tame and frame the hurricane
Today Today Today Today

Radio beats a jingle jangle jingle
got me craving what they want me to need
TV’s twisting, spewing and spouting
doing that same old deed
I’m scratching my head just trying to choose
which desire it is I should feed
as I watch commercials bring me the news
here in the land of the free

Today Today Today Today
Today Today Today Today
