Erosion

Lyrics: Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, David MacKay
Music: Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, David MacKay

All day long in every city
And now in every town, it's barreling down
Every minute of the night and day
Well, it's never said and done
No escaping now, when it comes
From every direction

Day and night in every neighborhood
On the TV screens and in the magazines
All over the movies, and the videos
It's not just entertainment anymore
Not anymore

It's erosion
A systematic wearing down
It's erosion
A systematic bit by bit
Erosion
A systematic inch by inch
Erosion
And just to get us used to it
We get it over and over and over and over
And over and over again

It's happened in broad daylight, slowly but surely
In the marketplace with a smiley face
Through advertising and clever skill
Now it's selling something more
How sad it is that we still
Want to keep on buying

Day and night, communication
Keeps pumping in while we're wearing thin
All over the newsrooms and the radio
It's not just information anymore
Not anymore

It's erosion
A systematic wearing down
It's erosion
A systematic bit by bit
Erosion
A systematic inch by inch
Erosion
And just to get us used to it
We get it over and over and over and over
And over and over again

It's erosion
A systematic wearing down
It's erosion
A systematic bit by bit
Erosion
A systematic inch by inch
Erosion
A systematic wearing down
It's erosion
Erosion
(Over and over and over and over again)
Erosion
Erosion
(Over and over and over and over again)
