292 : 1/27/99 : Have To

Does it really mean anything
If you only do what you have to
is there really anything
We don’t have to do
Really anything can be
balanced on a dime
neatly split in two
The haves and haven’t got times
Thanks to the logic
and dreams of our elders
The earth we’ve inherited’s
Nearing collapse
We all sit straining
our necks out our ears cocked
All listening for the
one-handed claps
Does it really mean anything
That we choose something to listen to
We all take our half but
somebody must take the other half, too
