Look At What You Make

lyrics

Look at what you make; look at what you take.
Look at what you make; look at what you take.

Look at what you make; look at what you take.
Look at what you make; look at what you take.

I heard you’ve got some words – now plant them in the earth.
This is your work, so let’s just see what it’s worth.
You could plant a tree, or you could write a speech.
You could be a seed for what you want them to be.
I heard you’ve got some songs. Well, we could sing along,
but when the farmers are gone, we won’t be singing for long.
It could be a hit or it could be shit,
but no one can eat what’s on your compact disc.

Look at what you make; look at what you take.
Look at what you make; look at what you take.

Look at what you make; look at what you take.
Look at what you make; look at what you take.

I know you’ve had some thoughts. Well, you sure do think a lot,
but one thing you’ve got to make is all that you want.
I know you’ve got needs, but what about me?
Are you going to give the things you like to receive?

Think about it, and I’m sure that you will agree.

Try to always remember to contribute something of
value in every single thing you do and remember to never be
a drain on the economy. Sustain sustainability.
Someday soon, the seeds that you plant will be sown.
Today, it’s true: the seeds that you planted are sown…

The seeds that you planted are the plans that you needed
‘cuz the chance that you need them, well, that was foreseeable.
The chances you’re seeing were the plans that you seeded,
‘cuz the thoughts of succeeding brought the work that’s preceding.
