Being Sold To You


Lust!
It starts off with the thought;
And, it leads on to the pride of life.
Lust!
From the lies you told us;
Lust!
In so many different ways;
Lust!
To buy a given product which leads to sin.
Lust!
Being sold to you;
Sold, old!
With the pride of your muse.
Pride, ride!
With the lust of your eyes;
And, with the desire to sin.

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
