Something Sacred

Something sacred has been lost
Something tender has its cost
Try to sever what is real
Like it isn’t a big deal

Penalty will be tried
All the nights I have cried
Opened up my heart to you
You just do what you do

Selfish good and selfish bad
wear it like it’s just some fad
What was once tried and true
Spit it out and grab the new

Loneliness is your curse
Seeking sweetness is your nurse
Never stopping to reflect
Just another train wreck

I thought we’d plan a new start
We’d be together for a long time
You went back on your own
Estranged in your zone

Something sacred has its cost
Something tender has been lost
Get it back if you can
Grow up and be a man

Hide the truth from your eyes
Celebrate all your lies
Pretend you are wise.

Something sacred has been lost
Something tender has its cost
