When the world and I were young, just yesterday. Life was such a simple game, a child could play. It was easy then to tell right from wrong. Easy then to tell weak from strong. When a man should stand and fight, or just go along. But today there is no day or night, today there is no dark or light. Today there is no black or white, only shades of grey. I remember when the answers seemed so clear, we had never lived with doubt or tasted fear. It was easy then to tell truth from lies, selling out from compromise,w ho to love and who to hate, the foolish from the wise. But today there is no day or night, today there is no dark or light. Today there is no black or white, only shades of grey. [instumental interlude] It was easy then to know what was fair, when to keep and when to share. How much to protect your heart, and how much to care. But today there is no day or night, today there is no dark or light. Today there is no black or white, only shades of grey. Only shades of grey.

Isn't that songs' words still relevant today? Priceless. The Monkees also had Pleasant Valley Sunday, which is another one with words still relevant.
