HEART OF THE MATTER - words & music by Stan Schaffer
Take the life out of living, and it's not living
Take the light out of sunlight, and watch it grow dark
So much economizing, with nobody realizing
See if it stands on it's own
See if it stands ... on it's own

And everyone you depend may depend on someone too
They defend their actions with their assets
The TV sets are running; so is the population
See if it stands on it's own
See if it stands ... on it's own

Don't remind me; don't be kind to me
Let's check the heart of the matter; see if it belongs
Does anybody belong here?
If we can be strong, we belong here

But it's the middle-man who feels the pull from both sides now
Misdirection always causes pain (to the heart of the matter)
Listen to your heart, and start to realize
Don't let it stand on it's own
Don't let it stand ... on it's own

Does anybody belong here?
If we can be strong, we belong here
