Album
Name of Song: We sorta look the other way

It happens oh so slowly,
The apathy from within,
It happens little by little,
Until it all sets in.

Hard to sorta notice,
The giving up on goals,
You abandon your own magic
Now you can’t find your own soul.

Chorus
Where did it all go to,
How did I let it slip,
I wasn’t always like this,
These bodies tend to drip.
Leaving its own apathy,
Unchecked that’s what they do,
Letting it take over leaves
much more of them than you,
______

It happens oh so slowly,
The apathy from within,
It happens little by little,
Until it all sets in.

Hard to sorta notice,
The giving up on goals,
You abandon your own magic
Now you can’t find your own soul.

Chorus
Where did it all go to,
How did I let it slip,

These bodies tend to drip.
Leaving its own apathy,
Unchecked that’s what they do,

Bridge
Letting your body take over,
What humans seem to do,
Making nothing of yourself,
Now where is the real you.

Your pet is quite a problem,
Constant needing you,
All its time and energy spent
demanding what you do.

Your pet is really human,
It lives and dies each life,
Then you get another one
and hope for much less strife.

Welcome to reality,
To most it’s what it is,
We sorta look the other way,
Just them and her and his.
