Lyrics and Music by Joseph Barneski
Flith runs from the gutters, graffiti marks the walls.
Steel bars protect
whats inside, as rain destroys the warmth.
Everything is cold and gray.
in the dark, two silohettes are huddled in the night,
A mother holds her child, who's eyes are wide with fright.
Hidden deep within
an alley, the shelter's full tonight.
What's a mother to do when her baby's cold and crying.
she to do when it lies inside her silently dieing.
God only knows the reasons
for these fears
Her pain is plain to see as the love within her tears
She lies awake crying, not knowing what went wrong.
The only thing she's sure of, her hopes and dreams are gone.
She crys to God in anger.
And in the
dark lit cigarette her husband sits alone.
She crys, "My baby's gone..."
When resentment and shame become one in the same,
Her litany of
pain is all that remains.
