These streets are deadly quiet tonight.
It’s just past twelve, no one seems to be in sight.
The weekend’s no longer the same.
Soon there’ll be plenty of blaming games.
Are you one of those lonely souls, even in the crowd?
Just like them, you’re all full of doubts.
You know what reality’s all about.
Once again, second thoughts are all you’ve got.
Peace has been destroyed,
trust tainted and broken.
Even the well-intended have grown apathetic and exhausted,
even with all concerns spoken.
Will there come a time
when suspicions arise
and love is fully overcome with crimes,
forever poisoned by lies?
Can we all go back to walking those once peaceful streets at night,
even if it’s deadly quiet?
