I search for the title, I search for the deed I know what I want, I know what I need In the blink of an eye, With a slash from a pen Little boy lost Is born again Oh....oh.... little boy lost Bait and wait ‘neath the shade of a tree Hook and weight, we were meant to be free An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, Little boy lost, looking for truth (proof) Oh....oh.... little boy lost Ashes to ashes the world still turns Dust to dust, food for worms Makes me want to holler, makes me want to shout What am I here for? What’s it all about?
