Back Turned

The vultures in your mind

Cloud your every thought

But don't kid yourself with being kind

It's not what you always sought

You've always been a fingerless thief

Born to believe in something new

What you've done has never inspired belief

You walk the streets, your days few

----------

Do you feel anything at all?

Not knowing what makes it all worthwhile

You've often tried to fall

Redemption never made you smile

You refused that hand

Now you search for one that can feed you

But time runs for you with the sand

You walk it with your worn out shoes

----------

Wash your hands in the rain

You turned your back on purity

You sealed up the final pain

There is now no security

Somewhere there is a paradise

But it cannot be found

Not on these streets of vice

Where you walk so proud
