Lonely Street, By The Kaptain

I’ve been drinking my mind
Into thinking it’s fine –
That this hollow’s something I can beat
But the hole in my soul
Kills this longed-after goal
As I walk along lonely street…

I’ve been hoping for news
That would fend off these blues
And restore me to someone complete
But the angst in my heart
Stops me short of a start
As I walk along lonely street…

And I’m wondering
Who I am
When I see the mistakes I have made
And I’m wondering
Who I am
When at night I feel lonely, afraid

I have thought of this life
How they loaded the dice
To ensure that I couldn’t compete
And the put downs I’ve faced
Taking part in the race
That is run along lonely street

Feeling jaded and old
Now my heart has grown cold:
There is no place where our minds can meet
But I crave company
Not consorting with ‘me’
As I stumble down lonely street…

And I’m wondering
Who I am
When I see the mistakes I have made
And I’m wondering
Who I am
When at night I feel lonely, afraid

I have faced the hard truths
Plaguing my troubled youth:
Those that forced me to think on my feet
But the things I’ve since done
Serve to prove me as one
Always destined for lonely street…

I am scared of my head
Always seeking instead
A suspension of reality
But the demons inside
Won’t let go of my mind
As I stagger down lonely street…

And I’m wondering
Who I am
When I see the mistakes I have made
And I’m wondering
Who I am
When at night I feel lonely, afraid
