As the Cold Wind Blows

Location

Delinquents with damaged egos
What lies behind a smile?
A fragile soul cracked like shingle tile
As the cold wind blows

Freaks belong in circus shows
A mirrored image of a beast
With fearsome horns and jagged teeth
As the cold wind blows

Children given false hope
Nights on stairs for love
Seeds without light decay to up above
As the cold wind blows

But as they say here down below
This earth will be tolerant
Time will turn from slow to moderate
And the cold wind will be no more
