To The Ground

Words & Music by Kay Ashley

I am falling down
My bruises are turning from blue to brown
I can't seem to make it in this town
My songs fall in silence to the ground.

There's so many people in this town
But no one seems to want me around
I've got walls in my heart and my smiles mask frowns
They mask frowns...

I'm falling through space
I'm looking for the face
Of one who can turn me around
But I know that's no way to be
So aimless and I'm never free
I'm just falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling...
To the ground.

These days we've all got thorns in our crowns
Except for the rich ones who own this town
They'd just as soon drive you and me into the ground
They've got greed in their eyes and their smiles mask frowns
They mask frowns...

I'm falling through space
I'm looking for the face
Of one who can turn me around
But I know that's no way to be
So aimless and I'm never free
I'm just falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling...
To the ground.

Even now when I walk through this town
All I can see are towers falling down
Falling down
Falling down
To the ground
To the ground
To the ground.
