A Broken Silence

A Broken Silence - There They Go

rate me

VERSE 1

Flicking through photos as our childhood starts to fade away

As we’ve grown seen some of the wildest,

Many of our greatest days

Some succeeded, stagnated, didn’t make the grade

Some of us lost hope and put our faith up in the latest craze

With something so potent they lost focus

Couldn’t stay sain

Many dreams they went up in smoke

From the day they became a slave

Were they lost souls looking for ways to entertain their brain?

Couldn’t strain friendships and made it hard

To go against the grain

On a lonely road where no one is on a quest for change,

To get control then at best you must confess today

Barely a cent after rent in a mess you stay

Savings are spent, invested in the stress and decay

Do we rest the blame on the shoulders of society?

Who let it creep through although they know its notoriety?

If I could take your past and hold it where your eyes can see

To show you’ve joined a long line

That be folding up them brightest dreams

CHORUS

Sometimes the city can suck you in to its habits

Where it’s easier to sink than to manage

Let it go

Sometimes even the loudest people in a crowded place

Feel drowned out and start to think they’re alone

Another day another broken dream

We try to bring em out the dark again but there they go

Don’t know where to go

Don’t know where to go

My city try to throw em off they don’t know where to go

Sometimes the city can suck you in to its habits

Where it’s easier to sink than to manage

Let it go

Another day another broken dream

We try to bring them out the dark again but

There they go

VERSE 2

Often I’m pacing, thought’s be racing

Asking questions why the privileged waste

And those in despair make the best of life?

What separates those with lesser drive from the rest that shine?

Why do some rise up in testing times? Some are less inclined

Morals clouded, soaked up in these pesticides

Couples giving birth so the baby bonus cheque arrives

We twisted, too slow to even get their vibe

Went from A to B so quick, couldn’t connect the lines

Since it got a grip on these streets and started clenching tight

Tensions increase and so has tendencies to crime

Bodies waste away

On those who were once the energetic type

No class or race divides this epidemic strike

It’s not a new find, fragility of the human mind

But to reality many have shut the door

Drew the blinds, isolated

In this modern worlds new design

Where no one’s got the time to try and stop em

from the noose they’re tying.<br />
