Lyrics

Born at the Wrong Time

I've seen so many changes, precious few that I'd have planned
Those so obsessed with shallowness, a plague upon the land
Somehow the ways of peace and love they cannot understand
And the days that I have longed to live are to a memory damned

Chorus:
Tell me, was I born at the wrong time
Feels like I'm living in the wrong place
Sometimes it all seems like a long climb
Tell me, was I born at the wrong, wrong time

I've been so many places, but I've never had a home
Surrounded by their faces, still I am so all alone
Have searched to find some softness in a world made hard as stone
'Til all this not belonging's left me that 'ol black cat moan

I just can't help but wonder what I'm doing here and now
Existing amongst others who exalt a golden cow
And scratch their itch by getting rich, no matter who or how
Will pay the price to feed their vice, no sweat upon their brow
