[Verse 1]
Spend my days caught looking through a prism
Rose-colored shades got me living in a prison
I'm slipping away, I'm slipping away
Haven't seen my friends or my people in a minute
Backtrack mind, yeah I need to hear their wisdom
Cause I'm slipping away, I'm slipping away
What do I know?
Church ladies with their hands on their pocketbooks
Giving loose change out to a criminal cause it's biblical
They're slipping away
Where does he go?
Old man on the train never getting off
Three sheets to the wind and it's not enough, still not enough
He's slipping away, slipping away

[Chorus]
And they cry, and I cry
Wasting our time
Slipping away, slipping away
One day they'll die
One day I'll day
Have we wasted our lives
Slipping away, slipping away?

[Verse 2]
Spend my days caught looking through a prism
Rose-colored shades got me living in a prison
I'm slipping away, I'm slipping away
What do I know?
Nice suits on the streets rolling eyes at me
So rich, so blind, no empathy, and it's killing me
They're slipping away

[Chorus]
And they cry, and I cry
Wasting our time
Slipping away, slipping away
One day they'll die
One day I'll day
Have we wasted our lives
Slipping away, slipping away?

[Outro]
Trying to plant my feet
To get through this weather
Lead me to believe
That it's gonna get better
It's gonna get better
It's gonna get better
It's gonna get better
It's gonna get better
It's gonna get better
It's gonna get better
It's gonna get better
It's gonna get better
