We All Fall Down...

Ashes ashes we all fall down

Running in circles, it’s all we ever do
The ones who break out are few
Looked in disgust for having different thoughts
Eating through our brains like you’re moths

More than disease sickens our minds
Child after child being left behind
Abandoned and left to fetch for themselves
Would it kill us to help someone else?

Ashes ashes we all fall down

Watch as the blood flows down
Your thoughts running round and round
Take your tears, bleed them out
Releasing all your doubts

But darling, why do this to yourself?
Feeling more pain then anyone else
Go each day saying your fine
Repeating line after line

Ashes ashes we all fall down

Drink another beer and it’ll be okay
Numbing the pain day after day
Washing away your problems with one more sip
While the lies of others dangle on your lips

Ashes ashes we all fall down

Mother said to take your pill
Swallow it down against your will
It never helps for the depression
Only adds to the aggression

Walk the halls of your school
Everyone looks at you like a fool
As if depression was funny to them
Scars from words never mend

Ashes ashes we all fall down
Ashes ashes we all fall down…

Running in circles it’s all we ever do
Hardly anyone breaks through
We’re looked at in disgust for having different thoughts
We’re the food for the moths

Feeding them their needs
When everything is based off greed
We crumble under their rein
What more can they gain?

Ring around the rosie
Pockets full of posies
Ashes ashes we all fall down
