There's a reason for all that rhymes
It's the fact and the way of the times
It's moving emotion, it's high and it's low
No matter where you go
There is something for all who look
There's a story in every book
All of the pages, between all the lines
So much that you can find

But there's too many empty lives my friend
And we just can't let them waste away
For this life is a precious thing my friend
And we just can't wait another day

There's a message in every word
