Grey and Beige Life

Beige walls and bright lights

Machines do all the work

Yet I grow weary of all the changes

My feet are swollen and ache

Crowds fumble in confusion

Our old habits die hard

Grey signs and arrows

Lead us to hope

What feels like a thousand keys

Jingle in my pocket

To lock all the never ending locks

To secure the things that kill us

Another day, another dollar

Yet progress cannot be ignored

A shift out of the old routine

Is vivid colour to the grey and beige life
