In Need

On a carousel that doesn't seem to touch the ground.

Not feeling so well on this unreal merry-go-round.

The organ plays so loud, I fear

that if I speak, no one will hear.

My friend, can't you see

that I'm a friend in need

and you've got nothing to give me.

I ride this wooden horse until the ride comes to an end.

Have I been here before, and how did I get to here again

and if I do catch the brass ring

will it really change anything?

My friend, can't you see...

Around me and close by are people laughing, having fun.

They don't see that I am deeply hurt and just holding on.

I met my shadow face to face

in a cold, dark empty place.

My friend, can't you see...

At the edges of the ride is a blur of dark colors and shapes.

I don't know what I'll find if I step off into that space.

Maybe I'll fall through empty air.

Maybe there's really nothing there.

My friend, can't you see...
