Untouched By Reality – Written Sunday 5th November 1995 (Aged 20)

Untouched By Reality

i am coming back
it has been a good time away
but i am home today
some days are untouched by reality
it is anger, it is toughness and it is naivety
where is the world going
what is going on?
what hope is there for people
if it has been felled by the bullet of an angry gun
a girl cries everytime she goes out
i am coming back
to a world i never knew much about
it is almost a heart attack
leave it alone it will carry on
even the most committed fun lovers
are worried about the world
