Track Name: Like An Old Fool Does
Time, marches on like a soldier, never missin’ a beat
It stops for nothing, yields to no one; so don’t stop moving your feet
Love, gives us a reason, for our hearts to beat
It stops for nothing, yields to no one and if you’re lucky it’ll knock you off your feet

Random thoughts and contemplations from a life of observations
Not intended to persuade or to start conversations
I’m just thinkin’ out loud like an old fool does
Without a reason; just because

Forgiveness, is a mighty sign of strength; nothing it can’t defeat
It stops for nothing, yields to no one and helps put ya back on your feet
Growing old, is both cursed and embraced, and it isn’t for the weak
It stops for nothing, yields to no one, and it’s a blessing to still be on your feet

Random thoughts and contemplations from a life of observations
Not intended to persuade or to start conversations
I’m just thinkin’ out loud like an old fool does
Without a reason; just because
Random thoughts and contemplations from a life of observations
Not intended to persuade or to start conversations
I’m just thinkin’ out loud like an old fool does
Without a reason; just because
Don’t need a reason; just because.
Track Name: Crazy Times
Upside down, inside out; shaken up and tossed about;
Certainty turns into doubt, in these crazy, crazy times
Civility is compromised, friends and neighbors polarized
Pain and hurt behind injured eyes, in these crazy, crazy times

Haven’t we been here before? Is this a never ending war?
What was all that fighting for in those crazy times?
That page was never turned; there was something we didn’t learn
Why do we choose to return to those crazy, crazy times?

Pushing, shoving, lines are crossed; breeding hate and breaking laws
Rush to judgment serve’s no one’s cause, in these crazy, crazy times
Ya, there are those on every side, who choose to play outside the lines
But I believe most of us have peace in mind, in these crazy, crazy times

Haven’t we been here before? Is this a never ending war?
What was all that fighting for in those crazy times?
That page was never turned; there was something we didn’t learn
Why do we choose to return to those crazy, crazy times?

Some folks run, some folks hide, some can’t wait to choose a side
Some of us won’t be satisfied, til-we-see-the-end of these crazy times
Crazy times, crazy times, crazy times, crazy times
