    Rush Second Nature текст песни

    Second Nature

    A memo to a higher office
    Open letter to the powers-that-be
    To a God, a king, a head of state
    A captain of industry
    To the movers and the shakers —
    Can’t everybody see?

    It ought to be second nature —
    I mean, the places where we live!
    Let’s talk about this sensibly —
    We’re not insensitive
    I know progress has no patience —
    But something’s got to give

    I know you’re different —
    You know I’m the same
    We’re both too busy
    To be taking the blame
    I’d like some changes
    But you don’t have the time
    We can’t go on thinking
    It’s a victimless crime
    No one is blameless
    But we’re all without shame
    We fight the fire — while we’re feeding the flames

    Folks have got to make choices —
    And choices got to have voices
    Folks are basically decent
    Conventional wisdom would say
    Well, we read about the exceptions
    In the papers every day

    It ought to be second nature —
    At least, that’s what I feel
    «Now I lay me down in Dreamland» —
    I know perfect’s not for real
    I thought we might get closer —
    But I’m ready to make a deal

    Today is different, and tomorrow the same
    It’s hard to take the world the way that it came
    Too many rapids keep us sweeping along
    Too many captains keep on steering us wrong
    It’s hard to take the heat —
    It’s hard to lay blame
    To fight the fire — while we’re feeding the flames
