Common Factors And Denominators

COMMON FACTORS AND DENOMINATORS 

 

With all that’s going on 

In the world today 

And as we know it 

Show it 

Grow it 

And totally unsure 

Of what will come after 

And later 

For we  

For we 

Are plagued constantly 

By common factors and denominators 

The same insanity ongoing 

And so many not knowing

Or never see it as such 

As the ignorance of it all 

Has just become too much 

For those of us 

With our eyes and minds 

Truly opened to the calamity 

That surrounds us all regularly 

Daily and nightly 

And on a repeated cycle 

Just running and running 

Without fail 

And feeling nothing but compelled 

To stay underneath and be succumbed 

By the very same spells 

Chaos in the air 

Chaos on the ground 

And just about everywhere 

That one looks around 

The pain and despair 

The rich and the poor 

The enslaved and free 

The black 

The white 

And the gray in between 

For many things 

Appear even worse 

Than what they actually seem 

The false and real 

The injustice and hate 

Violence and political debates 

And even more than we can all feel 

Yet again on a repeated cycle 

Just stuck in replay 

And saying the same old things 

Doing the same old stuff 

And no one seems to have had enough 

Except for a few awaken souls 

That come off and seem crazy 

Just because they really know 

And are truly aware 

Yet trying to wake up more 

The excited and bored 

The hate at the core 

And taking our money 

At all of these stores 

But not really getting ahead 

Or seeing a drop more 

As many lie in wait 

While others are out 

Committing atrocities 

That seek to end humanity 

Itself 

As history and the times 

Just keeps on repeating itself 

In a very disturbing fashion 

And always having  

The very same reactions 

Losses and wins 

Depths and gains 

But nothing ever seems 

To truly change 

And personally 

I have always found this strange 

No matter whom I’m around 

Senseless and far from profound 

The good  

The bad 

And the constant ups and downs 

Everywhere I turn around 

Circling the air 

And traveling the ground 

So again, I say 

With all that is going on 

In the world today 

And as we know it 

Show it 

Grow it 

And totally unsure 

Of what will come after 

Both now and later 

For we  

For we 

Are plagued constantly 

By common factors and denominators
