Innocence

The people wept
When you went away
But then it got a little better

From day to day
You were on the grind
You hustled all the time
The maneuvering you did
Was subversively sublime

The people believed
In who you were
But now your face on those murals
Looks a little blurred
You had them in your hand
But then you let go
Why you let them down
I will never know
Why you let them down
I will never know

Hold on to what you got
Hold on to what you got

She got the midnight blues
All morning too
One man’s weakness
Turns him into a fool
The boy has left the man
Where innocence once stood
Cruelty now stands
Where innocence once stood
Cruelty now stands

Hold on to what you got
Hold on to what you got
