A Way of Keeping Score

They never knew my friend
but they all talked about her
They never heard her sing
or met her familly
 
They had something to say
so they went ahead and said it
because it helped them fill their day
and it made them feel important
 
People aren’t people anymore
there just a way of keeping score
 
She tried hard to get straight
but they will ever know that
and the difference she made
to all of those she loved
 
they saw her on their screens
they felt they had the right
to judge for their amusement  
the value of her life
 
People aren’t people anymore
there just a way of keeping score
 
Musical Bridge)
 
I stand here in this line
with the smiling and the crying
and all of those who know
and those who really care
and shame on all of you
who think that her life mattered
because it helped you make your point
and fed your broken soul
 
People aren’t people anymore
there just a way of keeping score
People aren’t people anymore
There just a way of keeping score
