Barren Life

I WATCH THE RAIN TRICKLE DOWN THE GUTTER
I SEE THE COLOUR DRAIN FROM THE SKY
I WATCH THE WORLD STAND STILL AROUND ME
I FEEL THE ENDLESS MARCH OF TIME

I SEE YOU PASS BY
WITH THAT LOOK IN YOUR EYE
YOU SAY "IT'S ONLY NOTHING"
BUT IT'S ALWAYS THAT ONE THING

NO ONE HEARS YOUR CRIES OF SUFFERING
AND WOULD THEY CARE ANYWAY?
REFLECTED IN EVERY SHOP WINDOW
ECHOED ROUND THESE STREETS OF GREY

I SEE YOU PASS BY
WITH THAT LOOK IN YOUR EYE
AND YOU SAY "IT'S ONLY NOTHING"
BUT I KNOW IT'S ONLY THAT ONE THING

I SEE YOUR SPIRIT TRICKLE DOWN THE GUTTER
I SEE THE COLOUR DRAIN FROM YOUR EYES
I SEE  YOUR WORLD STAND STILL AROUND YOU
AND CEASE THE ENDLESS MARCH OF TIME
AND YOU SAID "IT'S ONLY NOTHING"
BUT THIS REFLECTION NEVER LIES
