Help me forget

Help me forget this city where I dwell
The grey granite walls I now know so well
My dreams gone adrift in the oceans outside
Among the sharks and the tide we all know as life
So help me forget the extent of our sins
Seven most deadly deep within every skin
They come and go cut us up like a cake
Till there’s not much left and we’ve nothing to trade
I cannot forget all of these troubles
Lacklustre love and obligatory cuddles
Family, friends and a foe that’s myself
Put value on status instead of our health

Can you help me remember where I belong
Is there sun, sand and sea or do we just soldier on?
