Lost

Alone at night, the air is cold

Another day, another lonely soul

Collective fears, misunderstood

Crash! The lights went out for good

The rusted tears dripped from an iron frame

Not long before this civilization’s time came

I lived in a part of town where no one knew my name

Too tired, too lost to play their vicious games…

And the clock strikes once for you

And the clock strikes next for me

And the clock strikes once for you

And the clock strikes back!

(Aaaaaah aaaaah aaaah aaah ah…)

So when I stepped onto the ice

The old man of victory paid his price

Ignoring distant cries of Uncle Sam

That’s just the kind of snake I am

They tried to peg me for another

They tried to take away our brothers

But infrastructure shows its limits

It holds as long as time permits

And the clock strikes once for you

And the clock strikes next for me

And the clock strikes once for you

And the clock strikes back!

(Aaaaaah aaaaah aaaah aaah ah…)
