Better (not bigger)

by Ken Davis

about

A genre mangling writing exercise that turned into a half decent song. I stole the title from the Sustainable Australia Party's slogan.

lyrics

Gridlock
Turn up the radio
Tick tock,
Going so slow

In hock
Watchin' the city grow
Live like
There's no tomorrow

Is it too late to try and save it
Feels like we're bursting at the seams

Do we really want bigger
When we can have better
Everybody wants something
Just a little bit more

Do you really want bigger
When we can have better
Face the future that we're fighting for

Not bigger but better
Not bigger but better

Big homes
Higher prices
Smart phones
We're never satisfied

Black smoke
Tide is rising
No joke
It's global suicide

Is it too late to try and save it
Feels like we're bursting at the seams

Do we really want bigger
When we can have better
Everybody wants something
Just a little bit more

Do you really want bigger
When we can have better
Face the future that we're fighting for

Not bigger but better
Not bigger but better

Time to start a conversation
Bout a smaller population
For the future generations
Now's the time for innovation
Less useless disposable stuff
Enough is enough is enough is enough is enough is enough is enough is enough
