The best we can do

Why do our dreams in the morning
Seem lost by the mid-afternoon?
At least you could give me a warning
But I guess that’s the best we can do!

Don’t speak of want as a cancer
‘Cause I don’t believe that it’s true
Besides, we’re this close to an answer
Doing the best we can do

I can’t really say what drives us today
You know that’s outside my purview
We’re just doing the best we can do

Take this desire for splendor
Add in some red, white, and blue
Stuff it all into a blender
Call it the best we can do

Try as we may the world slips away
You'll find it right there on YouTube
I guess that’s the best we can do
