Mature Issues (Old Man Blues) – Greg Hafner

The cheese is sliding off my cracker, I think I’m going round the bend.
Tried chasing bats from my belfry, there’s toys in the attic again.

Slipping into decomposition,
Sliding into decay.
Am I the guy at the drugstore,
That can’t get out of the way.
Mature issues are providing
Pain and problems every day.

I have to take so many medications, side effects are printed too small.
I can’t remember why I came here, stupidly staring at the wall.
(chorus)

Slipping into decomposition,
Sliding into decay.
Am I the guy at the drugstore,
That can’t get out of the way.
Mature issues are providing
Pain and problems every day.

Mature issues,
Will make it rough.
Mature issues,
I’ve had enough.
I have arthritis,
Bad back, sore feet.
Blood pressure dictates,
What I can’t eat.
These eyes are failing,
And it’s hard to hear.
My doctor tells me,
Stop drinking beer.
Mature issues,
Will make it rough.
Mature issues,
I’ve had enough.

Building A Wall

The President’s pet project…..
Greg On Bass, Bass synth./Drum Machine/Vocals. Paul Added Guitars.

Building a Wall-Greg Hafner

He’s building a wall, propagated by hate.
Building a wall, to make America great.
Racial supremacists, know what it’s all about.
We’re building a wall, to keep the others out.

Will the wall make our world safer at night?
Will the wall make your neighbors, acceptably white?
Will the wall eliminate all our reasons to fight?
(chorus)
Will the wall give us much more money to spend?
Will the wall help pollution and poverty end?
Will the wall finally make us better than them?

When you go to church on Sunday, and fold your hands to pray,
Do your leaders tell you what to think, and what you need to say?
We have meds that make life easier, we have meds to deal with pain.
Is there anything that cures the problems, that live in this man’s brain?
He’s building a wall….

Would the wall have kept your friends and family out?
Would they ask how this hatred all came about?
Will the wall give the haters reason to shout?
He’s building a wall, what will America pay?
Building a wall, what would your forefathers say?
Exclusion and bias, that’s what it’s all about.
He’s building a wall, to keep diversity out.

Lady Liberty said, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free….”

We should build a bridge, between me and you.
Build a bridge, this world is overdue.
Bridges of peace, or walls of hate,
Which do you think, really makes America great?

Get Things Clean

A New Tune I had in mind. I finalized, this idea of Getting Things Clean/So They Can Get Dirty Again (including those that clean up the world’s mess).

Get Things Clean-(Paul Woodsong)

Get Things Clean, So They Get Dirty Again.
Get Things Clean, So They Get Dirty Again.
Get Things Clean, So They Get Dirty Again.
Get Things Clean, So They Get Dirty Again.
Everywhere In Life, Folks Dull the Pain.
Of Everyday, Mundane, Cleaning Again.
It Drains the Body, It Drains the Brain.
Get Things Clean, So They Get Dirty Again.
Everyone In Life, Experience the Strain.
Cleanse The Dirty, And Dirty Again.
Concern For Hygiene, The Human Trend.
Get Things Clean, So They Get Dirty Again.
(chorus)
Everywhere In Life, To Make The Grade,
Whatever It Takes, Just So We’re Paid.
A Washer, A Maid, The Cleaning Trade.
Get Things Clean, So They Get Dirty Again.
Everything In Life, Just Trying To Live.
Some Have Wants, More Than They Can Give.
Filter The Dirt, Down The Sieve.
Get Things Clean, So They Get Dirty Again.
(chorus)
Everywhere In Life, Things Come To An End.
Except the Dirt, You Can’t Pretend.
Scrub it with a wipe, So it will Blend.
Get Things Clean, So They Get Dirty Again.
Everywhere in life It’s a Race To Gain.
Hope’s Get Dashed, Flushed Down the Drain.
Washed Anew, With The Fallen Rain.
Get Things Clean, So They Get Dirty Again
(chorus)

Am I Wrong?

Are the messages too strong?
Greg on Bass/Bass Synth/Vocals/Drum Machine.
Paul on Guitars.

Am I Wrong? – Greg Hafner

You say I talk too much about the global situation.
Perhaps I rail too much against prejudice and hate.
I’m so distressed about environment destruction,
And quite concerned by civilian arms embrace.

So, am I wrong? But, am I wrong?
Well, am I wrong? I don’t think so…..

I feel the wealthy have a moral obligation,
To help less fortunate, homeless, and the poor.
Their money crafts our government’s direction,
They have so much, and bargaining for more.
(chorus)

Where on earth, are you going?
Where on earth, can you hide?
Where on earth, are we going?
Here on earth, can we hide?

Our politicians steer the public conversation,
Controlling citizens by illustrating fear.
The wars they want may cause annihilation,
Our species can’t survive this fatal cure.
(chorus)

Live TogetherGreg Hafner

If we filled the world with people,
Some seven billion strong,
Each one would be different,
Each one would belong.
We all are made of different cloth,
We all have different hair.
If we all work for common cause,
We’ll get the planet there.

We should try to live together
Try to live together in peace.
Understanding one another,
Try to live together in peace.
We’re only here forever,
Why can’t we live together in peace?

If you look at where we’re going,
And look at where we’ve been,
Let’s put our hands together,
Share the love we’ve seen.
We want our kids to be happy,
We want them to be safe.
All were brought to Mother Earth,
To join the human race.
(chorus)
Let’s take the so-called leaders,
And drop them in the sea.
The world would be a happier place
If everyone was free.
I wear a black and crimson jacket,
You wear a brilliant blue.
Your opinion matters to me,
I hope mine matters to you.
(chorus).
