Lyrics
The World You Take For Granted The world you take for granted Is a world I once possessed A world of tender comforts Whose loss I never guessed But storms I could not hinder As I was powerless to see Snatched up my might and grandeur And ground down what once was me I took every precaution Against those things I thought Would strike against the fortress Of the life that I had wrought No thief or clever enemy Could claim a single prize No radical opponent Would cut me down to size But against the things of pleasure I built no wall or frame Which might have slowed my searching For power wealth and fame And so I brought upon myself The fate which now you see A broken man of habits Which I abuse habitually So now I find I’ve drifted From the wise man to the fool A lump of simple sandstone Where once had been a jewel I tried so hard to hang on To things which little mattered While never tending my own life Which now lays torn and tattered The world you take for granted Is a world I once possessed A world of tender comforts Whose loss I never guessed But storms I could not hinder As I was powerless to see Snatched up my might and grandeur And ground down what once was me
