Every Man
written by Gary Marks © 1995 Arewea Co. ASCAP

For every man who still can smile
there are ten whose hearts are miles away,
many miles away
 
For every man that remembers why
to stay awake, ten barely stay alive;
just stay alive
 
Follow plans, meet demands, die and go to heaven.
Follow plans, meet demands, die and go to heaven.
 
For every man who drinks the air
there are ten who drink to disappear
til they disappear.
 
For each man who works his dream
there are ten thousand man machines
told not to scream.
 
Follow plans, meet demands, die and go to heaven.
Follow plans, meet demands, die and go to heaven.

Oh, out of the child we grow
oh, losing the way we know ‘bout how to grow.
 
For every man who still can feel
a million more think thoughts are what is real,
and they follow them.

Follow plans, meet demands, die and go to heaven.
Follow plans, meet demands, die and go to heaven.

Oh, out of the child we grow
oh, losing the way we know ‘bout how to grow
