Help Me Understand

By Bruce Clifford

The corporation drives me to despair
I keep wondering what brought us to here
Help me understand
How did things get so bad

All I wanted was to write my own songs
Somehow I ended up in places I didn't belong
Help me understand
How did things get this way

Was it all out of our control
Or could we have turned this ship around
It's sad to see through all these turbulent times
Now we're so lost there is only one way out

This corporation keeps me awake at night
Counting all the wrongs and can't justify the right
Help me understand
How did I let it slip away

Help me understand
I'm not a selfless man
Help me understand
There is no master plan
Help me understand
Show me a different way
How did things ever get this way

Help me understand
I'm not a selfish man
Help me understand
I tried to hold her hand
Help me understand
Tell me how to end this mistake
How did I let her get away

The money saved is more money spent
Getting lost in the scuffle of this clearance event
Help me understand
Is this the price we have to pay

No sign of light through another door
They keep on taking and throwing us more
Help me understand
How could a good dream quickly fade

Help me understand
I'm not a guilty man
Help me understand
I'm not the dapper Dan
Help me understand
Talk to me just to keep me sane
Are we the first and last to be betrayed

Help me understand
I'm not a selfish man
Help me understand
Is this the price one has to pay
Don't think I could take another day
Don't think I could take another day
