NOT THERE BEFORE

Written by: Jeff Bresee

You saved them then
But fell again
The circle’s in the sky

Divided fence
And happenstance
Don’t care if it’s a lie

Tomorrow’s day
Fades into grey
And blue melts into black

As silent sounds
And crushing pounds
Creep in for the attack

An empty stage
And crumpled page
Bleed deep into your brain

Don’t ever sleep
Don’t ever weep
Don’t ever feel the pain

The same old room
Familiar gloom
The same old window’s stare

As tears rain down
Disfigured clown
Why should you even care

But something now
Not there before
Won’t let you go away

A million voices 
Fill the air
A million voices pray
