On and On

By Bruce Clifford

Are we not fools living inside reality
There was a time I knew just who I would be
Am I trapped playing mind games with myself
Living two lives as if it were my private hell

One life is real and the other seems to be
And the closer I get I'm further from reality
Now I look at the chaos in my mind
Like a runaway train with no end it sight

You could have taken me in but you never cared for me anyway
You could have given me a chance but you had to through this all away
You could have found it in your heart to tell me I was the only one
You could have shown be love but instead you played me on and on
On and on

Am I'm not living in a blind society
Catching the visuals of everything I could be
Now I thrive in the real and live deeper on other side
How can I keep up when I'm living inside my mind

Are we connected or is it all make believe
Is there a truth about us or is it a story I conceived
I take a glimpse and look out beyond my dreams
It takes me closer to this blind reality

You could have taken me in but you never cared for me anyway
You could have given me a chance but you had to through this all away
You could have found it in your heart to tell me I was the only one
You could have shown be love but instead you played me on and on
On and on

On and on
How long can this go on
On and on and on and on

Am I fool living for peace and understanding
Am I lost for this eternal pretending
Now I look at the chaos in my mind
Like a runaway train with no end it sight

You could have taken me in but you never cared for me anyway
You could have given me a chance but you had to through this all away
You could have found it in your heart to tell me I was the only one
You could have shown be love but instead you played me on and on
On and on
