alexthomasdavis – Ten A Penny lyrics

Those people who are ten a penny
What really does become of them
There are so very very many
Amongst them not a single gem

So you lived your life in black and white
Or should I just say grey
You never took your chance to fly a kite
Or have a roll in the hay

Those people who are ten a penny
They never thought a single word
There are so very very many
Their ways are really quite absurd
So you lived your life without a fight
No new dawn every day
You had your eyes shut so tight
That's really not the way

    Good lyrics in this song. Its about those people who are ten-a-penny, fillers! They just tread through life so slowly, treading water, not achieving anything or saying or doing anything out of the ordinary. Now some people who are boring can still be cool, this song is about the other people though who don't appreciate their life and all the complexities and wondrousness of it.
