Onion

You traveled for many miles
on a whim of adventure
Lost in love
you were running from most everything
Now things no longer weigh what they used to
The gold you buried in your backyard
has turned to grey
 
Ever feel like a cow for the city
feeding all the sewers and the highwires
Can anyone find a map to the beginning
The band slipped out the window
They are floating away
 
You came out swinging
Your eyes were on fire
When they left you spinning
you turned to rain
Like rain, the pain
will rise up around you
Like rain, the pain
will fall and roll away
The onion of your heart
starts me crying
Feeding off the ruins
for a new life
The ashes from the fire
keep me breathing
Fix my broke down wagon
Girl, let’s ride
 
Ever feel like a cow for the city
Can anyone find the switch
Turn these lights down
When the streets get so loud
Will we stop hearing
Call back the marching band
Let’s rage
