This Then That

Can’t get no satisfaction
Not locking in on anything
Adrift on the wind caprice
Fourth line slips; like a greased pig

I started to change myself talk
Gaining new strength with every word
This is truly who I am today
I don’t need another cure

Versifying verifies our voice
The voice that holds us up high
As long as we write down our words
They’ll define who we are and we’ll not die
