Pay The Cost

They came so undone
To a journey not yet begun
United forces,shackled feet
City life from a back street

They all lived too fast
Thought they were unsurpassed
Visious circles,lives incomplete
Til they faced lifes`just a big cheat

Inside my heart is breaking
Something slowly building..aching
We`ve not yet lived and learned
Until the day we mess up and get burned

The urge to be free and wild
Led them to a dark side of life..reviled
Ultimate freedom forever lost
Now they`re let alone to pay the cost

Inspired after seeing the streetchildren in Romania.Seeking shelter from the
cold down in the sewer systems beneath the streets..The youngest of them couldn`t had been much more 5 years old..
