Lost

By Bruce Clifford

I no longer understand this changing chaotic world
The visions we once knew are slipping beyond our view
I no longer understand this uncertainty and fear
Trying not to cry, but itís so hard to understand why

Why are we falling deeper into space
Why are we calling this a time for prayers and faith
Why is the mainstream stopping and stopping on a dime
Why are we lost in yesterday when tomorrow is so close by

I no longer understand our willingness to believe
The dreams we once shared are now a distant memory
I no longer understand this universal plight
Trying not to disappear in the chaos of the night

Why are we falling deeper into a lapse of time
Why are we telling each other this is now how we will survive
Why is everything pausing just as the energy was right
Why are we lost in yesterday when today should have been alright
