This Place

track 3 from the album The Depth of Layers

We came to this planet for a better life, for increased opportunity.
It couldn't be any more different than from where we've come.
My home was a place so plentiful, and now I stare out at a space so empty.
This environment is desolate and holds nothing but harshness in its heart.
Sometimes I feel as though this place, this horrible place, lacks any sincerity.
Friends turned to enemies and those I had never even met became close friends.
