Hearts And Minds

Miles Away

We all fade away from the seas we once sailed
The lives we knew and the faces that played
They showed us the facts, we showed them on back
Searching for meaning and reason to live
Words we fought for still nailed to the door
In houses held hostage by razor-sharp hearts
Moral crusades versus capital gains, the choices were all in our hands

Worked to the bone with nothing to show
Raising your family the best you can do
Vultures are waiting, circling you
Pills and abuse, take what you need to slowly numb the pain

Take our minds away, to slowly numb the pain
Take our minds away, take us back

To a place where laughter ruled and life was so much easier
Nothing to prove for me or you, we loved our lives with all our hearts
The simple things you cannot buy
Traded in for suits and ties, mortgages, weekly bills
We stagnate in the routine of a reality force fed by wealth
Shackled by TV, fictitious religions, forced onto our knees
And taught to deceive the ones we truly love
They set us up for this fall

And when it all comes crashing down, who will you be?
When it all comes to an end, where will you be?
When it all comes crashing down on you
