Why

Why do we kill
In the name of our God?
Stone the woman only
For things that took two

I keep asking questions
Yet no answers I find
This world has gone mad
Trying to walk on the line

Children are not safe
Homeless left to die
We all look the other way
We turn a blind eye

Is this how we want to live
Have our hearts turn so cold
When we stand before our own God
What will we then be told

Walk On Sheep

Why are we like others
Following in their footsteps
Claiming we go our own way
Doing things different
Tho nothing changes
Telling others we're not sheep
Yet being led to slaughter
By the few, the shepherds
The ones that give us no chose
How can we go our own way
Walking in the footsteps of others

Walk On


My mind is working
My soul screams out
This body is full of pain
Everyone looks
As they walk by
Thinking I’m insane

A bit of change
They throw my way
Giving themselves a high
But from their looks
Everyone can tell,
It’d be okay if I died

My mind is working
My soul screams out
This body is full of pain
Everyone looks
As they walk by, yet
Which of us is sane

If Love was Death:


If love was death
I would live
for eternity.
Nor would I know
its sweet touch or
if it winked at me.


If love was death
and only came in
the dark of night.
The sun would
shine forever on me
with its glowing light.


If love was death
it would not come
to my open door.
I would not hear
knocking, knocking
just a cry of nevermore.

Why

Eyes met, bodies went wild
they knew no love would be found
between the two now there is one
no one cares what it might be
money makes everything alright
when it’s gone they will play
repeat
always repeat
why does this have to be?
