Why does the road to life have to run shallow?
Where is the love that should be deep in the hollow?
To have and to hold, to forever keep a dream.
To find peace and forever let life gleam.
Tears and pain controls the run away train.
All the human race, what is tomorrow to gain.
Insanity has claimed us by the wayside.
Truth and reality has gone out with the tide.
To take a walk in the acid rain, the Earth be torn.
Lives beauty in the yesteryear so forlorn.
