Good things/ the way we are

It makes us all sad when we see them suffer
Tried and tested but not true
Stuck in the cycle of upward mobility
and the economic downturn
seems there is a new name for it
every time it happens
to come flashing across the tv
it is always the same
but today it is news
The emotional scale is tipping
between greed and panic
despair for some
They have everything invested
they trusted, they tested
they wasted, much time
they traded, their minds
For nickels and dimes
It's the deaf, leading the blind
