What has become a scapegoat at most
Scraping away the essence of life, of love
And stepping out of dreams I took hold of
What needs to be done and the choices at hand
Are often away from what the heart can withstand
Truth is fading as I fall into habits of old
Shoved into this world spirling, uncontrolled
