Bleeding Hearts

My mind it runs and just won't stop
When I try to shut off
Paralyzed by pain and worry
Indecision in a flurry

I've got to keep myself from drowning
In a sea of fear and longing
I can't neglect my basic needs
When I see a heart that bleeds

My help is of no use to others
If I’m the one to run for cover
Must be careful; don't get lost
In someone else’s Holocaust
