SILAS: Music

Homage to the Cheapest Hope

(SILAS)
April 3, 2006
Friends all tried to tell you
'bout time that you slowed down
'cause your movin' way too fast
Your feet don't touch the ground
You've joined the walking wounded
Fries my mind to see
How easily you got trapped
By this mass insanity

Like a pinwheel in the breeze
You just spin round 'n' round
On a never ending quest
For the cheapest hope in town.

Tiny voice of reason
Makes the loudest sound
If you'd look into the mirror
When you lay the powder down
Standing awkward naked
Your words no longer rhyme
Frenetic on the sidewalk
With just a shiny dime

Like a pinwheel in...

Better get yourself a big hat
'cause the shit's began to fall
There ain't no one left behind you
And your sacred crystal wall
Friends all tried to tell you
'bout time that you slowed down
'cause you're movin' way too fast
Your feet don't touch the ground

Like a pinwheel in...
