Headline: Wrong With Us
------------------------------

we think the same, we dream the same
spend our lives trying to maintain
some hope wrapped up in mock defense
in a world that makes no sense
still we cling to innocence
in an effort to survive

we watch our friends as they sell out
turn into people we laughed about
if we don't like what they've become
is there something wrong with us?

sometimes it's hard to just go on
inching closer to the lines we've drawn
separating us from them
our logic fraying at the ends
avoiding truth where it bends
in an effort to survive

we watch our friends as they sell out
turn into people we laughed about
if we don't like what they've become
is there something wrong with us?

stick to places that we know
best intentions guide our hope
but something's slipping from our grasp
we're holding on the best we can
in an effort to survive

why let go if you're only young once?
what went wrong with us?

-R. Rist / J. Rosen
