True Sadness lyrics

You were a friend to me when my wheels were off the tracks
And though you say there is no need
I intend to pay you back

When my mind was turning loose and all my thoughts were turning black
You shined a light on me

And I intend to pay you back

But I still wake up, shaken by dreams
And I hate to say it, but the way it seems
Is that no one is fine
Take the time, to peel a few layers
And you will find
True sadness

When I was a child I depended on a bottle
Full grown I've been known to lean on a bottle
But you're the real deal in a world of imposters
And I seen the programs to make men out of monsters

Cause I still wake up, shaken by dreams
And I hate to say it, but the way it seems
Is that no one is fine
Take the time, to peel a few layers
And you will find
True sadness

Angela become a target
As soon as her beauty was seen
By young men who tried to reduce her down
To a scene on a x-rated screen
Is she not more than the curve of her hips?
Is she not more than the shine on her lips?
Does she not dream to sing and to live and to dance down her own path
Without being torn apart?
Does she not have a heart?

I cannot go on with this evil inside me
I step out my front door and I feel it surround me
Just know the kingdom of God is within you
Even though the battle is bound to continue

Cause I still wake up, shaken by dreams
And I hate to say it, but the way it seems
Is that no one is fine
Take the time, to peel a few layers
And you will find
True sadness
True sadness
True, true sadness
