Slow Decline

Slow Decline

I’ve been run down
Left here for dead and then buried deep
By promises we couldn’t keep
By cries that fell on deaf ears

Fading away
Like a white ring around a finger
That tans as the summer lingers
Soon it will just disappear

Chorus:
I’m shrunk up and fading
Broken up and degrading
With the passage of time
By the slow decline

She looks away
All the lines on her face look like scars
That were earned in some holy war
Where nobody ever wins

It’s her turn now
To lob a bomb, turn and walk away
One man’s work is another’s play
I’m starting to sink again

Bridge:
Faded, jaded and degraded
By the passage of time
By the slow decline
From us to used to be mine
From we’re great to I’ll be fine

Chorus:
I’m shrunk up and fading
Broken up and degrading
With the passage of time
By the slow decline
