New and Used

Broken watch on a young man’s wrist

Smile on his face

Cause there’s money in his fist

The tick my stop but the tock keeps on coming

 

Tattered girl with the brand new doll

Her expression is blank

Cause her life is against a wall

The eyes may blink but the tears aren’t real

 

Used up woman with a useless man

They set out for a dead end

Faking smiles for as long as they can

Why reach for the stars if you just end up in the ground?

 

The princess in the castle

Her prince on a pale horse

They never question the hassle

Only fear the others touch
