  • You were a friend to me when my wheels were off the track
    And though you say there is no need I intend to pay you back
    When my mind was turning loose and all my thoughts were turning black
    You shined a light on me and I intend to pay you back

    But I still wake up shaken by dreams
    And I hate to say it but the way it seems
    Is that no one is fine
    Take the time to peel a few layers
    And you will find
    True sadness

    When I was a child I depended on a bottle
    Full grown I've been known to lean on a bottle
    But you're the real deal in a world of imposters
    And I've seen the program make men out of monsters

    'Cause I still wake up shaken by dreams
    And I hate to say it but the way it seems
    Is that no one is fine
    Take the time to peel a few layers
    And you will find
    True sadness

    Angela became a target
    As soon as her beauty was seen
    By young men who try to reduce her down
    To a scene on an x-rated screen
    Is she not more than the curve of her hips?
    Is she not more than the shine on her lips?
    Does she not dream to sing and to live and to dance down her own path?
    Without being torn apart
    Does she not have a heart?

    I cannot go on with this evil inside me
    I step out my front door and I feel it surround me
    Just know the kingdom of God is within you
    Even though the battle is bound to continue

    'Cause I still wake up shaken by dreams
    And I hate to say it but the way it seems
    Is that no one is fine
    Take the time to peel a few layers
    And you will find
    True sadness
