societal programming
I don't know if it's the universe speaking to me or
if it's some sort of societal programming but
everything from the music I listen to down to graffiti on the street
it feels like someone's trying to get a message to me
a message about love and much like love it is fickle
I feel like petals on a daisy
As they say love me, love me not
Now I see girls sitting and dreaming
Of those things once ascribed to men
And so it’s become a more interesting world
With many men now doing the cooking
And taking care of housework and the kids
While the woman heads for work
Once we’re there, no return is offered
Be careful when you reach the half-way point
One step further and it may be impossible
To turn around and return as if I don't know if
it's the universe speaking to me or
if it's some sort of societal programming.
