But when were there simpler times?
When did the clock flow at such a steady pace
As to assume or provide a comfortable living.
When was there a day of laughter
From the ones who gave you life?
Or a day free of argumentative behavior?
When were those simpler times
That you struggle to recall?
When did the sun shine in such a way
That you felt as if all were good?
When was their ever control?
When was there ever a simpler time?
