In This Human Race
THIS HUMAN RACE
Words & Music by Nick Granato
(V1) We donâ€™t know where it started, or how we got this far,
And some of us donâ€™t have a clue, exactly where we are,
With all the pushing and the shoving, just to be the one in front
Some play fair, some donâ€™t care, and others point and judgeâ€¦ Oh and
(CHORUS 1) Everybodyâ€™s running, like thereâ€™s no time to waste,
We all find out the hard way that we canâ€™t keep up this pace
Some fall with spirits broken, others vow to one day finish
But most of us are looking just to placeâ€¦In this human raceâ€¦.
(V2) Through years of greed and fighting,
Weâ€™ve seen the track get torn to pieces,
By those who think their faster and see themselves as great
Some have been held back by stronger, while others use the weaker
And some are just too far gone to saveâ€¦ Oh and
(CHORUS 2) Everybodyâ€™s running, some try to cheat their fate
Some of us are leading, and some are led astray,
Yeah, we all see the dangers, yet we donâ€™t heed the warnings,
While some are just concerned with saving faceâ€¦.In this human raceâ€¦.
(BRIDGE) We take 3 steps forward, then we take 2 steps back,
Canâ€™t you see for years weâ€™ve all been going nowhere fast.
Not everyone can win, but sadly everyone can lose
If we donâ€™t take time to slow downâ€¦ and stop listening to the foolsâ€¦.
(CHORUS 2) Oh and everybodyâ€™s running, some fall in disgrace
Some of us reach out to help, some just get in the way
Some pay to get position, others seek out higher powers
But most of us just try to keep the faithâ€¦In this human raceâ€¦.
Yeah most of us are trying to find our wayâ€¦In this human raceâ€¦.
In this human raceâ€¦. Oh yeah everybodyâ€™s runningâ€¦
