IT DOES NOT REQUIRE A COLLEGE DEGREE OR A NEW CAR
TRUE LOVE CANNOT BE BOUGHT OR RENTED OR SOLD
IT DOES NOT FADE AWAY OR ALTER INTO SOMETHING LESS
IT IS NOT DIAMONDS OR JEWELS OR A FANCY CAR
IT DOES NOT CLING TO YOU IF YOU OWN A MILLION DOLLAR BALL TEAM
OR PLAY FOR ONE
IT DOES NOT REQUIRE A LICENSE OR TAX SHELTER

Mirror, mirror

Standard

When I look in the mirror, I see

Someone looking back at me.

From a mirror realm through the looking glass,

I see this tired old man with a sad and lonely past.

These were not the things I had hoped to see when I went to look in the mirror at me.

 

Never Forget

Standard
Never forget that cold September day
when some heartless bastards took our dreams away.
when we realized that some deserve to die
as we mourned the loss of innocent lives
innocent souls who did no wrong
now in the sky they have moved on
when the nation turned its eyes to a fella
who declared a war on terra
 
 

Revolution #artforfreedom

Standard

You say you want a #revolution.

You say you want to #change the #world.

Are you willing to do whatever it takes

To #free every boy and girl?

#100,000 voices are crying out.

Can you hear them call?

Injustice has become the norm

At the damnation of us all.

You say you want a bold #new world

Where everyone is free.

You say you will do anything

To be all you can be.

To bring about this new age

Some people have to change.

Hypocrisy must go away

And never come back again.
