Linger on


Try again- don’t let it end
Dead ends and doorsteps for the ones who play you like a fool.

Up ended, befriended
depended on the derelicts who have won the prey, but wait for the passion to cool.

Chorus
The innocent, the victims of a scam on line,
The decadent, the wisdom of this age undermines us all-
its on the way down…town to town…

It’s the dumb-ing down of language,
the dumping ground and the aftermath lingers on and on and on…

Try, try again, it hits the backboard of the trends,
end to end, the story never ends,
for the men and women who gave their lives but still have a pulse.
..and the beat goes on and on and on.

Chorus
The innocent, the victims of a scam on line,
The decadent, the wisdom of this age undermines us all-
its on the way down…town to town…

It’s the dumb-ing down of language,
the dumping ground that lingers on and on and on… (the stench lingers on)

Bridge- and they chalk it up to flashbacks and the fire power of the soul.
And the cards that are stacked up and piled on against them bring their toll, from the driving winds that shatter, the dryness of the matter, and the forces of the latter day saints who darkness paints a backdrop of the have and have not’s and the aint’s…

Don’t press send, it’s not quite the end
of another day, joy will find a way,
to complete another day, and tomorrow may bring healing for the wounded, who lay down, who have drifted off but still are not the lost… They are the people who have stopped and count the cost.

Chorus
The innocent, the victims of a scam on line,
The decadent, the wisdom of this age undermines us all-
its on the way down…town to town…

It’s the dumb-ing down of language,
the dumping ground that lingers on and on and on… (they stumble on)
