Lost Souls

Beaten Path

Lost Souls

They walked alone
They were never taught
To be strong, to be bold
They lived with fear
Afraid to be themselves
So they kept their truth inside
They did not call for help

And so, they fall down
They fall deep into the ground
No one can hear their cries
No sound.
They are alone
Nothing around
There’s no place to go
When you’re deep in the ground
An era of lost souls
All around

They lived alone
They were never taught
How to be a friend, only to defend
Their selfish goals
So they toiled everyday
To fight for what
Would eventually go away

And so, they fall down
They fall deep into the ground
No one can hear their cries
No sound.
They are alone
Nothing around
There’s no place to go
When you’re deep in the ground
An era of lost souls
All around

What they really need
What they really want
Is to just be themselves
Nothing else, but themselves
What they really need
What they really want
Is to have love around
With no conditions, unbound

So they won’t fall down
Deep into the ground
