Lyrics

JOY

Joy was her name
A life un-wed
Thirty years old
Never danced a step

She would have left these red hills far behind if not for her

condition

Would have left these red hills long ago if not for my condition

Pitiful Joy
She looked away
Into a hollow sky
Came face to face

With her own innocence surrounding her until it never was a

question

Innocence so suffocating, now she cannot move, no question

No hope for Joy
No hope or faith
She wanted to go blind
Wanted hope to stay

I've been believing in nothing since I was born, it never was a

question
