Scott Becker: Music

Rents

Rents


Generations are running by us
Though we never meant to intrude
Only wanting what we both thought best for you
You raise children a little strange
You were not permitted to do
All those things but I’ve said enough now I’m through

Understand you were once my child
Life as clay in my hands
Wisdom in my experience
Stubbornness in your plans

But I think you turned out all right
You were given all the right tools
Synthesized them and realized your own rules
Give to them what we gave to you
Soon we’ll all be like the sand in the dunes
Like the sand in the dunes
Like the sand in the dunes
