lyrics

ORDINARY PEOPLE

Tie around the neck
Like a dog choke collar
In the depths of the feeling
There’s a lonely boy that hollers

Sacredness forsaken
His sadness rises to frustration
And the wound it gets infected
Til the limb has no sensation

Ordinary people
Just like ordinary people

Sombre resignation
Creeps with momentary blindness
Almost broke the curse
In a short rage of defiance

A voice like yours but younger
Tries to raise itself up higher
To offer grace and summons peace
Like a distant burning fire

Ordinary people
Just like ordinary people
