Status: Finished  |  Genre: Song Lyrics  |  House: Booksie Classic

Blink of an eye; long ago

Verse:

Cry out for answers into the silent void

Beliefs are shaken and utterly destroyed

Don’t look to me as your guiding light

Thity three to fifty eight has been a losing fight

 

Pre-Chorus:

Distant screams right outside my door

Battle is raging from now to evermore

 

Verse:

They say wisdom comes with age

Just a clueless man in a gilded cage

Lost and alone, confusion wins the day

Understanding seems so far away

 

Pre-Chorus:

Distant screams right outside my door

Battle is raging from now to evermore

 

Chorus:

Twenty five years in the rear view mirror

Understanding life’s not getting any clearer

The daily war rages and steals my soul

Just another loser in the gold fish bowl

 

Verse:

Wish I knew the answers or even the question

Wish I could believe in the smallest suggestion

I’m standing on the edge and just staring down

Wishing my life could be the other way around

 

Pre-Chorus:

Distant screams right outside my door

Battle is raging from now to evermore

 

Chorus:

Twenty five years in the rear view mirror

Understanding life’s not getting clearer

The daily war rages and steals my soul

Just another loser in the gold fish bowl

 

END
