The Ride

By Bruce Clifford

Fighting from both sides
Taking yourself out for a ride
Crying from within
Each lost day not knowing where to begin


Running from the outside
Empty hearts beating from side to side
Motion sickness and despair
Wondering if anyone really cares


All these ups and downs
In and outs
Lost in the clouds


All these pointless days
The casualties of war get in the way
Gets in the way


Flying from the obtuse
Taking the highway out on the loose
Living on the far side
Perpetual wonders are swinging in stride


Looking from the inside
False sense of sanity in our hearts and minds
Motion sickness and despair
Wondering if anyone thinks itís fair


All these ups and downs
In and outs
Lost in the clouds


All these pointless days
The casualties of war get in the way
Gets in the way


Fighting from both sides
Taking yourself out for a ride
