Lone Wolf is a personal glimpse into the thoughts swirling through my noggin


truthfully money goes underneath the table while we sleep
watch tv a personality gets paid to push beliefs
in the day energy swept away as it regurgitates
years go grey from the time when it was important to go play

selfishness creates this

i don’t know the specific moment when we all lost hope
maybe 9/11 but it might have been a bit before
not too much into politics but i know no one wins
popularity’s a high priority to officials

selfishness creates this

went through changes years ago
chose to roll solo
honestly by choosing so
the result is a tough road

brain is thinking about how to impress everyone I meet
at the same time I want solitude to save sanity
waging wars against the universe in my little world
maybe everything will be alright if I can find my girl

selfishness creates this

always in a rush to leave
with nowhere to arrive
but it’s wrong to look content
so we live a lie

wandering in the nebula
daydreams evaporate
treatment only can help so much
numbered are all our days

It’s no secret one day life ends
bittersweet to the taste
why is it hard to find someone
so few friends seems a waste
