Sadly For Ourselves


Searching for a Youthful Fountain
In the Distance, Arizona mountains
My soul is tainted; the sky is painted
orange and purple, red and pink
I know I'm blessed
but I'm depressed, I think...

The time I waste's the time I'm spending
We try to save each moment ending
Each life's a book half-written on the shelves
We become the person we're pretending
to be - with wounds slowly mending,
we're fucked, stuck fending
sadly for ourselves
sadly for ourselves
