Damage Control
Lyrics

Another day just beginning
Another day that will soon end
And all that takes place in between
Is what you call this life, my friend

We never asked to be here, oh no
We didn't have a choice
Nobody asked our opinion
‘Cause we didn't have no voice

Just trying to carry on
And take it easy
Slow your breathing
Keep your head up
Stay down low
And deal with this damage control

They say we‘re flirting with disaster
So say the news and their talking heads
That's everyday operating procedure
Let’s call it what it really is instead

Never asked for special treatment
And hardly ever step out of line
Now it’s kid gloves on and bite your tongue
And think before you speak your mind

So just trying to carry on
Take it easy
Slow your breathing, yeah
Oh, keep your head up
Stay down low
And deal with this damage control

Sometimes I think it’s all a big mistake
Someone upstairs just fell asleep
I don't know about any of that
But I know, I know, I know
It wasn't up to me

So many questions, the cosmic design
The professors and the doctors
And the next Einstein
They’ll never find the answer
‘Cause they don’t know
So I’ll just try to carry on
And do my damage control

I never asked to be here, oh no
I didn’t have no choice
Just along for the ride
Yeah, don’t you know
Try to stay out of trouble, yeah
Just trying to carry on, carry on
And deal with this damage control
