Reasons

Day after day
Year after year
What you don’t know
You know that you fear
The changing times move the changing seasons
All that you are for all the wrong reasons

Building it up
By tearing it down
Run in the race
Then run out of town
Hide in the shadows coming out of your shell
Pray for salvation from your own private hell

Swallow the pills
Inhale the smoke
Escape what is real
Become such a joke
Turn up the volume to drown out the voice
Too many options to make the right choice

Drink up the Kool-Aid
Take a knife to the heart
Imagine the ending
Don’t know where to start
Cling to emotions until you no longer feel
Cuts that run deep become scars that won’t heal

Night after night
Hour after hour
What you know now
Has now turned to sour
The changing times stall the changing seasons
All that you are for all the wrong reasons
