This is our future, this is our truth
Look beyond the make-up, long after our youth
Listen to the echoes play, dancing through the city streets
Watch these flashing lights, the words are gone and we’re left with a beat

Take out all the background, where do we go from here
Left with no direction, but knowing home is somewhere near
What is this that’s happening, did we go too far this time
Somewhere in this sketchy world, someone forgot to draw a line

Watching as these faces ….fade away
Waiting to see what tomorrow brings
Watching as this world …..turns today
Waiting for the time, when our sun sings

Tears, screams and voices fill these streets
Crying out, we’re victim’s of life
Just another front page title
Missing faces, always wearing a smile

The truth is sad, these times are bad
Where do we go from here
Left with no direction, but knowing home is somewhere near
Somewhere in this sketchy world, someone left out a line

Faces fade away, through the ruble and the dust that fills this air
Waiting to see what tomorrow brings, a photo of another missing smile
Watching as this world turns in a downhill spiral
Echoes playing, dancing through these city streets
All the words are gone and we’re left with this beat

victim's
The dance of life is more complex today. You captured the thoughts and feelings of many, who feel they are in the skinner box, looking for the cheese at the end. Which, has usually been eaten by others not jousting the maze.
