Uriah Heep – What Should Be Done lyrics

So you think you found a way of living
That prevents you losing any sleep
Well my friend take this that I am giving
It's your piece of mind you oughta keep

You'll run into trouble, for sure
By living behind a locked door

Will you run the risk of being taunted
By doing what you want to do
Or do you prefer to have your whole life haunted
By the ones who choose to care for you?

Beware of their motives, my friend
Take care you're still there at the end

Watch out for winter, it'll bite you with cold
Black spirits trying hard to bribe you with gold

Would you steal a nickel from a blind man?
Well right now I do believe you would
It's not the thought of you doing it that hurts me
It's the mind behind it that's no good

If this is your way I don't want to know
There's only so far I can go

I won't go no further not for you or anyone
I have my own ideas of what should be done
What should be done
What should be done
What should be done
