Song Description

Reflecting on and questioning today's lifestyle of fast-paced achievement-seeking.


You Just Have To Ask

Here are we
In the first little bit of a century
We keep what we do
So it's just a matter of making the time to
We're already late
So just get in line while we make down the interstate
It's follow follow follow, advance advance advance
And thank you for the inter-rest and thank you for the chance
If I told you right now every bit of what would change
There's no way you'd ever believe
Look out the window,
Imagine how tiny the piece of the quilt that you weave

And sometimes you just have to ask,
Who am I doing it for?

Well I sounded the symbols I'd seen since I spoke to read
Was cut from a family with family needs
And soon wore the blue blazer everyone else had on,
Gleaming a happy king's face from inside a sad pawn
'Cause that's what they told me would pay in the end
And there's no better way to make friends
And something I heard inside 50 kid's nods
Reciting the best words to talk with to God
Made me know that everything would be okay
If I tried not to make a mistake
From the medals of honor to the crosses that hang,
From the places we ride to on horses and trains
To the things that we do to put money in the bank
To the pride that was bigger than the biggest ship that sank
From the things that we say when a loved one has died,
From the insults we never even knew we implied
To the things that we buy that we throw out just as fast
There's got to be something that lasts
