More to Rust

My strength, my enemy
Gone the days I thought I had ahead of me
My strength, my enemy
Work my hands have done I’m told is obsolete

You use words like “Progress,” and you use words like “Change”
And grind your brothers down beneath this onward-rushing train
The world keeps spinning faster, but where’s it taking us?
The more machines we build, the more there is to rust

And I say oh, oh, oh, you can keep tomorrow
I don’t know how to live the life you’re promising
Oh, oh, oh, you can keep tomorrow
If disappointment is all it brings

My pride, my ability
Though the ground may shift and change beneath my feet
My pride, my ability
Haven’t met the mountain yet could conquer me

You can yell your “Progress!” and you can yell your “Change!”
But if this river breaks its banks, we all drown just the same

The world keeps spinning faster, but where’s it taking us?
The more machines we build, the more there is to rust

And I say oh, oh, oh, you can keep tomorrow
I don’t know how to live the life you’re promising
Oh, oh, oh, you can keep tomorrow
If disappointment is all it brings

All it brings…
My strength
