when everything else fails

Dogs Of The Street

life is still dragging on
we are running from place to place
looking on and on in hunger
dreaming in monochrome ink
you and me are the dogs
days give way to nights
stealing on the lights
in shades of gray
eyes shut and eyes open
never so sober
they grow colder and colder
looking on and on in hunger
and now they call us dogs
all rivers reach the sea
all bright lights dim in the end
and all roads lead to nowhere
so kill the guiding lights
and shut this engine down
let the wheels roll and roll
now we reach an ending
nevermore flowing on and on
we are the dogs
