This human race
Words & Music by Nick Granato
(V1) We don't know where it started, or how we got this far,
And some of us don't have a clue, exactly where we are,
With all the pushing and the shoving, just to be the one in front
Some play fair, some don't care, and others point and judge... Oh and
(Chorus 1) Everybody's running, like there's no time to waste,
We all find out the hard way that we can't keep up this pace
Some fall with spirits broken, others vow to one day finish
But most of us are looking just to place...In this human race....
(V2) Through years of greed and fighting,
We've seen the track get torn to pieces,
By those who think their faster and see themselves as great
Some have been held back by stronger, while others use the weaker
And some are just too far gone to save... Oh and
(Chorus 2) Everybody's running, some try to cheat their fate
Some of us are leading, and some are led astray,
Yeah, we all see the dangers, yet we don't heed the warnings,
While some are just concerned with saving face.... In this human race....
[Bridge:] We take 3 steps forward, then we take 2 steps back,
Can't you see for years we've all been going nowhere fast.
Not everyone can win, but sadly everyone can lose
If we don't take time to slow down... and stop listening to the fools....
(Chorus 2) Oh and everybody's running, some fall in disgrace
Some of us reach out to help, some just get in the way
Some pay to get position, others seek out higher powers
But most of us just try to keep the faith...In this human race....
Yeah most of us are trying to find our way...In this human race....
In this human race.... Oh yeah everybody's running...
