The street you live on

They’ve been spoon fed

A promise

They can not be sure of

But everyone keeps shouting

Which side are you on

—–

Between these newsfeeds

These city streets

The potholes fill the road

It’s just a broken down soul

Can we still live here?

—–

And she says love’s not worth it

But right now

Love is all we have

No matter how deep the hurt

—-

They’re digging up the old graveyard

Trying out the old noose

But no body

Feels any pain

And no body

Feels anything

—–

They’ve been spoon fed

A promise

And they shout

But no body

Hears anything

And they dance

But no body

Sees

And she cries tonight

And she breaks

And she fights

And tonight

I don’t see

I don’t feel

I don’t hear

Anything….

—-

This long time

Old soul

Broke

A long time ago

And this pain fills my chest

Just like ….

And it wrecks the street I live on

Just like…

—-

tonight

I don’t see

I don’t feel

I don’t sleep

I don’t hear

Anything….
