Broken-down City

When I close my eyes

I can se black and red

Images pass through my head

And they don’t seem to make any sense

I can’t seem to see into my past

As I wander the broken-down city

People are walking by fast

I can see that none of them are smiling

I know they’re all empty shells

We’re all hiding from our demons

I’m just searching for a peace of mind

Suffering of insomnia in the broken-down city

The children are still laughing

But I can’t see the sun shining

And the children are still playing

As the buildings fall all around them

But I’ll continue to wear my blanket of darkness

Lost and lonely in the broken-down city
