Their Eyes Were Jaded

Their Eyes were Jaded

It hurts to wonder where you’ve gone to.
When I got away and you never did, and all I can do is remember.
Your tears, your blood, and those last words in September.
Run, please, run while you can get away.

Everyone’s eyes were jaded,
Tainted in their own fixation of fulfillment,
Buried in bottles and dying in Riddlin and,
I remember the death in your eyes.

Where’d you wonder,
I feel I have to know.
Before this pain grows,
Don’t die, don’t die.

I want you to leave that place,
Don’t stay on that fast track,
With the needles and the crack,
Everyone’s eyes were jaded.

Everyone’s eyes were jaded,
Everyone’s lives had faded,
Right into the pain they waded,
And I remember,
Everyone’s eyes were jaded.
So jaded.
