“Dedicated Time”

(Verse 1)
Step back, look around wonder why we’re here
See all my friends and peers change throughout the years
Each person moves on or becomes trapped within fears
Their tears force them to refuse to draw near
So here I am cold and afraid
Forced to have contact at a distant gaze
But its gotta end here and I gotta step out
Interact with one person, a whisper or shout
One person after another I carry on conversations
All this small talk makes me loose patience
No serious talk to busy with the walk
Building up these walls we use to block
I’m gonna put this brink down hear to every sound
Found within silence to beats of my heart pound
Stand still for just one second
And no word is important enough to mention

(Hook) X2
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure
One man’s pain is another man’s pleasure
Sometimes I think life’s too much to measure
Being crushed under my own pressure

(Verse 2)
Rising before dawn for the long drive
Getting there early and staying late at the hive
Gone before the kids wake, back when they’re in bed
Working hard to make sure that they get ahead
For his wife the kids and work wasn’t enough
They stopped going out so she stopped getting dressed up
Quality time dropped to the bottom of the list
Now they lay in bed thinking of memories missed
The kids are playing sports and going to school
Hanging with friends trying to be cool
Fighting the rules during their teenage stage
These kids need their parents so much at this age
They need each other just like we all do
Its sad but to be alone is something we all choose
That wont the help the pain but this will bring ease
Sit down and spend time to shoot the breeze

(Hook) X2
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure
One man’s pain is another man’s pleasure
Sometimes I think life’s too much to measure
Being crushed under my own pressure

(Verse 3)
Sssshhhh… Silence
Helps us see through our own life’s violence
Celebrate silence to keep your soul feed
It’s good advice when you face starts turning red
Cause words said faster often bring on disaster
But master yourself then open up and share that chapter
Living the fast paced city life may get you the green
That’s to fast for most, to be alone is a tragic scene
A husband’s a husband and a father’s a father
A wife’s a wife and a mother’s a mother
God had a reason to put you on this earth
So realize what you were made to be first
Give birth to time within your own life
To exist without it is like a stab with a knife
It’s a slow and painful way to go
Give time to yourself and others dedicated to grow

(Hook) X2
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure
One man’s pain is another man’s pleasure
Sometimes I think life’s too much to measure
Being crushed under my own pressure
