Once, there was a notion
Now, there isn't a damn thing left
How the tables turn

Alone sighs the retreating light
Once there was a sense of right
Now, the heart it yearns

True and tried were the cautions raised
Best were all the intentions laid
Far be it from me to say

So, it really comes down to this
Much as everyone has their place
We were a holy farce

What'cha gonna do when it all comes down?
Secondhand clear whim is what you've found
