Sad Song

Written By: DJ Vern


Every day goes by, one step closer to death.
A clock ticks in the corner making me deaf,
A new generation, waiting to be taught,
hey dude, look at all this new stuff I bought.
Days when life wasn't learned through a screen,
The people we talked to were actually seen,
I try to break away from my teenage strain,
Let me hit one more party before I go insane
Come on mom, everyone's going don't be lame,
You kids need a new mind frame
Take a look around, tell me what you see,
Results of a materialistic society
Capitalist pigs, equal Americans turned greedy,
rob from the poor, give to the needy
Kids ready to sell their souls to the devil, so they can buy a new social level.

I'll keep going on, but what's right, what's wrong?
Oh well, can't last long, it's just a sad song
I'll keep going on, but what's right, what's wrong?
Oh well, can't last long, it's just a sad song

Let's review by starting with what kids see on tv
Drugs, violence, and sex for free
Hey dude, look at my new Eminem Cd, screw that dog, i'm in to brittney, whoopdey dee
If there is one thing that I would like to pass on,
it would have to be the knowledge from this very song,
Media takes over and enslaves your mind,
kids get caught up and left behind,
whatever happend to shows like fresh prince and MacGyver, now all people watch is Friends and Survivor,
Girls grow up dreaming of fantasy, crusing for hotties in their mommie's grand prix,
worshipping pop stars and wearing AE,
trying to be something they can never be,
so guard your integrity and hold it up strong,
and if anyone asks tell them to check out the sad song

I've sang a lot of sad songs in my lifetime,
I've done a lotta bad wrongs with my white mind,
you don't want ill bill for your life line, if you call me, you'll get left behind
I spent my time and money in all the wrong places,
I wine and dine with all the wrong faces,
cops know me on a first name basis,
i'm scroungin for a noose or a pair of shoelaces,
My friends and family don't believe in me,
lying, cheating, and deceiving me,
I go through life, people receivin me,
as I clone a Shady, but that ain't even me

I'll keep going on, but what's right, what's wrong?
Oh well, can't last long, it's just a sad song
I'll keep going on, but what's right, what's wrong?
Oh well, can't last long, it's just a sad song

I wish you knew the way I felt, watchin the hands my friends have been dealth
The world is not fair and this i've come to know,
but the important thing is what I have to show
a lesson can be learned from everything in life,
so make it yours, happy and without strife
Don't allow someone else to steal your eyes,
sugar coat negative images, thoughts and lies,
Always listen to that heart of yours, and never deny those teenage years,
Stick to what you know you should do, where you should go, and who you are too
Think this life is boring, then you're wrong, and if you do, then you're the one singing the sad song

I'll keep going on, but what's right, what's wrong?
Oh well, can't last long, it's just a sad song
I'll keep going on, but what's right, what's wrong?
Oh well, can't last long, it's just a sad song
