Like fish

Like fish in a bowl
or puppets in satin's hands
preaching, preaching
war, war, war
holy or not
this our divine plan
not plot

Left Behind

Once you had something to defend
but you let it slip away
blinded by promises
of better days ahead
now those days
have been
left behind

Metropolis of Shame

We can see right through
each candidate
spinning webs of lies
called promises
and yet we fall
for each and every one
again and again
sending them off
to the metropolis
of shame

Curse You

Who is playing with my head tonight
putting things in there that I don't want
what's messing with my emotions
I caught them swimming around
whispering things to me
when I became aware of them
I chased them out
sitting silent, pondering their origin
who keeping these things out
to get caught by me
everytime I had the answer
it slipped away
never enough time
to understand the things
life had to say
curse you wicked thoughts
go away

Repeated Mistakes

We've been here before
in another shape, in another form
trials and tribulations
still the same
we just call them other names
an endless loop
of repeated mistakes

Jones

headline fight
calling for attention
wrong or right
from arid desert to arctic zone
war won't leave us alone
sustained on misleading information
forgetting the burnt red
the innocent charred bones
everyone a Jones
without a name or face
until apology letters
reach waiting homes
stop at once
give us hope
for a better place
to find some peace
something to share
a reason to care
nourisment
for weary souls
something we all want

Steets of Heaven

The man said he was a wisp of love
coming out of the night for some sun
kept in the dark for so long
in a room of fears
telling him what he was supposed to be
evil reflections
pain, confusion, conspiracy
he washed his soul clean
walking the streets of heaven
remembering seasons of fire
buring in the soul once again
