Schwa Lyrics

Way of the World

Lyricist: Dave Katz
Vocalist: Dave Katz
If I could travel back, way back in time 
Early 1800ís, before industry prime 
When horse and buggy were the transportation way 
And months of dusty roads across the USA 
I know I'd find the world much simpler back then 
A bit too simple for a complicated man 

íCause I got my fancy automobile 
I fly across the sky in a heavy bird of steel 
Seeing all the faces I might have never seen 
Experiencing places I might have only dreamed 
But the fact it is, you know Iíd like it either way 
Living life the best I can each and every day 

chorus: 
The fish once swam where the people now dam 
The deer once played where the people now pave 
The wolf once killed where the people now build 
Some might say that itís the way of the world 

Revolution, improvement on the past 
But who knows how long the honeymoon will last 
New technology, the risky cutting edge 
The looming danger of falling off the edge 
I love the compact disc I love the DVD 
But there ainít nothing wrong with a scratched up old LP 

Modern pleasures, hedonistic if you will  
Sometimes progress is just a bitter swallowed pill 
I donít know much about the inner-working parts 
But I appreciate the value of sophisticated art 
As time goes by you know the effort never ends 
To build upon the present, and let the future be our friend 

The fish once swam where the people once dam 
The deer once played where the people now pave 
The wolf once killed where the people now build 
Some might say that it's the way of the world 
 


Oh how nice it'd be if a compromise was found 
Where human kind could thrive and wildlife abound 
Mother Nature, calmer winds sheíd blow 
And Mister Father Time moving generously slow 
Sometimes I think about how nice that it would be 
Sometimes I think that it's a real possibility 

The fish once swam where the people now dam 
The deer once played where the people now pave 
The wolf once killed where the people now build 
Some might say that it's the way of the world
