The Middle of Your Day

Gil Scott-Heron


Over the hill, you see
The middle of your day
And the Sun says, "It's time
For you to go your way"

Go and tell your momma
That you now know what to do
Her love will come in handy
She's always seen you through

But there's no one here to guide you
You got to do it by yourself
Minutes fail you day by day
And there's really nothing else

Where were you all morning?
Dodging life inside your heart
Never daring face the dangers
Then attack right from the start

Go and tell your daddy
He was right in what he said
'Cause the laws of independence
Don't apply until you're dead

And though you'd like him here to push you
'Cause you feel a need for help
Minutes fail you day by day
And there's really nothing else

How long must we live inside
Chains that anchor us to fear?
How long must we justify
When there's really nothing here?

It's the middle of your day, yeah
Wake up to the middle of your day, yeah
Why don't you welcome the middle of your day, yeah
