Album
Name of Song: Chased by an urge

I’m on my own,
Mostly it seems,
Because I’m surrounded
by those who sell dreams.

Chased by an urge
that they’ve had a long time,
They chose this way
but it’s all in their mind.

Who I’m describing
are addicted to hate,
They never will show it
as it would reveal their true state.

Chorus
Have you ever felt hounded,
Even hunted at times,
They think they are winning
but sadly collapse in their minds.
They have no control
except what they buy,
They’re really quite useless
to you and I.

Bridge
You sometimes may wonder
why I write about them,
Well they are the cause
of people going “round the bend”.
Until you start seeing
who is wrecking your life,
They’ll quietly stay hidden
but will always bring strife.
