Who Was Around?
Who was around when the world was falling down? Who turned away? couldn't bother to be around this now Who walked away when the game wasn't fun to play? And my escape became my only game Hand me over and hand me down Get me out of your sight No direction, my compass is broken Where'd you leave me tonight? I was a child, and now it seems so long ago Why'd you abandon me? maybe it's not for me to know No explanation needed, nothing can change the way things went You just weren't interested, I guess, I guess Some days fine, others out of my mind And the curse I curse is the worst it gets I hold it inside as you sleep, as you hide from The mess that you made of your life (who was around when you were hungry? Who eased the pain of all your sadness? Who played with you when you were lonely? Who was around? ) What will your conscience say? maybe you'll change the channel soon Or simply hide it in the chest of drawers inside your room Like old linoleum, battered and worn beyond repair Go burn the whole house down, like anyone cares Maybe in time, these indelible lines will Fade like the hopes and the fears you denied These feelings are gone, they've been buried along With the rest of the mess that you made in your chest of drawers
