lyrics

DOOMED
Lyrics by Ray Rodgers
Music by Sean Al-Jibouri

I watch CNN daily,
as I duck and I cringe,
as the bullets are flying,
as they tear and they singe.

I walk in the streets,
with blood on my hands.
I guess I’m just doomed
to be sorry, and sad.

For most of my life now,
I’ve watched terror unfold.
I watched as my friends
grew more vengeful and bold.

I walk in the streets,
where my freedoms are sold.
I guess I’m just doomed,
to be standing alone.

I watch as you stumble,
and I accept all the blame.
I watch as you're hurting
and I must feel the same.

I walk in the streets,
where the victims are chained.
I guess I’m just doomed,
to be dying ashamed.

I watch out my window.
I grow worried and tense.
I drink whiskey and ponder,
but still it never makes sense.

I walk in the streets,
where the victims are trained.
I guess I’m just doomed,
to think it all could be changed.

I wince at your hunger,
as I take my next bite.
I run away from your horror,
as it becomes my own fright.

I walk in the streets,
with blood on my hands.
I guess I’m just doomed,
to be sorry and sad.
