Deadly desire

Do you know where your kids go at night

Or is it a case of out of sight

Have you helped all you can

Now we have wiped out the ku Klux klan

Taught them how to respect all

And yet they feel so small

No direction homeward bound

Take a look as there eyes roll around

Thin needles and fat chance

Welcome to the modern dance

Yea keep on looking the other way

that’s someone’s son we’re gonna betray

Chorus

It’s a deadly desire as the youth get higher

We all know there playing with fire

The dealers reap the rewards

As the young lay wasted in stolen fords

In dirty dark urban roads

A time bomb waiting to implode

As we sit back and bitch and moan

Giving them another loan

Adding to the deadly desire

Better start up another funeral pyre

In the politics of no regret

We hand out bullets so they can play roulette

Ain’t no good weeping and moaning

When all our homes are broken in

For all our love and strength

We keep our young at arms length

Never giving love and attention

that’s why they seek a new dimension

Chorus

It’s a deadly desire as the youth get higher

We all know there playing with fire

The dealers reap the rewards

As the young lay wasted in stolen fords

In dirty dark urban roads

A time bomb waiting to implode

Lonely road ahead

 

In a moment of madness

And one too many a harsh word

Leads to a path of sadness

Love is the most fragile of treasure

Buried deep in our hearts

And what’s been lost ,you can never measure

 

In the darkness of a lovers quarrel

Something inside that you suppressed

Now it feels like your walkin on a stony coral

A bitter flashback of a deed done wrong

Making you deaf to your souls baritone

And now your singing a swan song

Chorus

It’s a lonely road ahead

When you no longer care where you tread

In danger of bursting your soul

Leaving you out of control

Take it from a heart that’s already dead

It’s a lonely road ahead

Sometimes words are hard to undo

But memories always remain

Even when your heart is blue

Too damn smart for your own good

Thinking you can just walk away

Did you do the best you could?

Bridge#

It’s time for truth or dare

Time to take a cold shower

Got notes to compare

Who is the judge and jury?

Whatever may come

You got to bury the fury

Friends come and go, it’s called ebb and flow

For the river always seeks the sea

But our hearts can never go back and say hello

When the last words are spoken

Feelings remain but time is a mover

It leaves two hearts broken

 

Chorus

It’s a lonely road ahead

When you no longer care where you tread

In danger of bursting your soul

Leaving you out of control

Take it from a heart that’s already dead

It’s a lonely road ahead
