Empty Streets

Dust-covered dirt
Rolling tumbleweeds
Shadows of unlawful deeds
Lonely winds fill
The hollow days
Showing how the earth decays

At one time people filled
These empty streets
They never knew who they might meet
But as time went by
They disappeared
Along with the outlaws that they feared

Empty streets —
The world goes on
For it is strong
Live and let die
As time goes by
The world goes away
But comes back another way

That scene from another time
Can’t predict what
We will find
No one knows
Nobody knows
What the world will leave behind

Only time can tell
How things will be
When the world sets us free
We all know lifestyles are strange
But when we’re gone
The world will change…
