​The Sale

This song is by Black N Blues and appears on the album Volume 1 (2005).

The sale most grand in history
Was done in pure deceit
The man in 30 years of debt
We're repossessed for rent

By a world that sold me
Numbers and a name
But I won't buy another day

So take this life, I'm over and done
Living for everyone else's expectations
And someone else's dreams
This life, just who is it for?
'Cause it ain't mine anymore
You see little by little
They raped it away from me

The boy, innocent, naive
Was given no receipt
The soul or what seems to be left
Of me can feel the theft

Layer by layer
Inch by inch
My dreamweaver sayeth
But it hurts to pinch

This life, just take back this fate
And in my hiding place
At least I won't have to cry
Through someone else's face
This life, just who is it for
'Cause it ain't mine anymore
You see little by little
They raped it away

Hey you, where were you?
When it all went down
Did they buy you too?
(Was it a two for one sale?)
So much for the blues
My heart sings but
It ain't mine to lose
It's yesterday's news

The man or what seems to be left
Of me can feel the theft

Layer by layer
Inch by inch
My dreamweaver sayeth
But it hurts to pinch
The world that sold me
Numbers and a name
But I won't buy another day

So take this life, I'm over and done
Living for everyone else's expectations
And someone else's dreams
This life, just who is it for?
'Cause it ain't mine anymore
You see little by little
They raped it away

This life, just take back this fate
And in my hiding place
At least I won't have to cry
Through someone else's face
This life, just who is it for?
'Cause it ain't mine anymore
You see little by little
They raped it away from me
Yeah... oh yeah
(By you, by you by you)

Raped it away from me
Hey you, where were you?
Hey you, where were you?
Hey you, where were you?

The sale most grand in history
Was done in pure deceit
