There once was a boy who lost his way
He didn’t know why he did what he did
A battle in the mind being lost
He fell through the cracks when nobody cared
Oh, does anyone know where all the love has gone to
When iron and lead turn the seconds to decades
He wished he was dead but then…
The magistrate slammed down the gavel
Five score ten and one
Hurt and death and chaos of mind
He regretted his wrong but then…
He can’t undo the past
Five score ten and one
