When The Well Runs Dry

by Steve Cavin

Drive an hour each way to work.

Take what you can steal.

Eat from the far side of the Earth,

Drink booze with every meal.

You still have time to laugh,

And there will be time to cry.

What you gonna do,

When the well runs dry?


Dump poison in the ground,

And poison in the air.

Throw your garbage all around,

As if you didn't care.

There is only so much land,

And only so much sky.

What you gonna do,

When the well runs dry?


Cheat your lovers,

And burn your friends.

Burn the candle

From both ends.

Ignore your neighbor,

And live a lie.

What you gonna do,

When the well runs dry?


Pay to play,

And never loose.

Define yourself,

By what you choose.

What you are,

Is what you buy.

What you gonna do,

When the well runs dry?
