Lost And Battered

Lost And Battered

1 min 229 1 min 229

O' son! Where have you been?

It's been a while since we've seen each other.

How have you been? 

You were out to carve your destiny when I last saw you.


O' son! Where have you been?

They say you are bruised and battered,

Lost among the crowd.

The path you took was never easy,

and there's still a million miles ahead for you.


The world is a cruel one I always told you.

It will chew your soul and spit your bones.

And the world around you won't even sigh a bit.

For everyone around you is running the same race.


Remember, the world will blind you, sway you away from your path.

But do not lose your bearings, it's just the storm before the clear blue sky.

The hill ahead may seem dark,

but march ahead to the beat of your heart.


O' son! Where have you been?

It's been a while since we've seen each other.

Mamma waits for you with open arms full of love and warmth.

The doors are always open if ever you need to be home.


O' son! Where have you been?

Will you ever come back?

The world however shiny it may look,

'Tis nothing but an illusion.


And you are just another disillusioned soul.
