Chances are I gave away too much… Song 304

Mistakes, missteps, maybe? More and more the weight pushing downwards. Reality stars and fancy cars, drifting and wailing. Ranting and railing against enemies imagined. A sort of kindness in an unforeseen death. Unfortunately fortunate. A Disneyland ride of doom. Where do wanderers go for the cheap thrills? What is the meaning of any of it? Do you care? Of course not. Carry on and on and on and on…

Song 304: “Chances”

Chances are I gave away too much
I’ve gone far with a soul to touch

Races run, feelings gone
Truth like a punch, endless streams

Chances are I missed my mark
I’ve gone far from what I used to be

Innocent belief, rain in the streets
Impolite manipulations of the heart

Chances are all I have left
I’ve gone far with weight on my chest

Tearing off the words
Cast into shadows unwelcome

Chances are I’m not heard
I’ve gone far from here
