Watching the talk shows,
And shock shows,
The eyes see,
Visions in prisons,
The slaves to the T.V.

Long ago the poets wrote,
Of romance and amour,
Dreams that seemed so real,
Before.

False information is spread,
Through the nation,
Street crack,
And kickbacks,
From station to station.

We're the lost and lonely ones,
Who buy the words they sell,
Can't believe that we keep walking,
On the road that leads to hell.

Same old story,
Same old story,
Only to escape.

Counting their money,
All dripping with honey,
Measure their power,
In women and powder,
Leaving lines of emptiness,
And kids without a home.

Don't they know that in the end,
It's what you've done,
Not what you own.

Same old story,
Same old story,
Only to escape.

In this wide world,
Of confusion and insight,
Show me the way,
Through the darkness,
With your light.

If you'll be my teacher,
I will practice all I've learned,
Show me how to walk through fire,
Without fear of getting burned.

Same old story,
Same old story,
Only to escape.

We're the lost and lonely ones,
Who buy the words they sell,
Can't believe that we keep walking,
On the road that leads to hell.

Same old story,
Same old story,
Only to escape.
