Dear John

See me staring in the mirror
I take a good look and I don’t like what I see
Lines of anger growing deeper
Whatever happened to the way things used to be
Everybody has a reason
Everybody is afraid to take the blame
For losing sight of the big picture
Everybody does it cuz we’re all the same

Dear John, where did we go wrong?
Dear John, when will they take use home?

Got a number in my pocket
With a promise of better days head
I’d like to say that I believe it
But the words are caught behind the demons in my head
Every time I find an answer
It lasts a while and then the wheels stop spinning around
Back to the grind and a mind so sinister
Don’t wanna get up but I can’t stay here

Dear John, when will our time come?
Dear John, these years are far too long
