Give them the lie The white lie Let them do the senseless Dance Depraved men they are

The Ordinary Man
Look at the way he walks With a torn tattered cloth and broken spirit. His soul weeps all day long as he Watches keenly how lizards and rats feast merrily in his house
I Believe In You.
I believe in the look in your eyes, I believe in your love and care. I believe the signal of your eyelids Because its direct my foot steps
Under the oak tree we lay awake waiting for the coming messiah
Waiting for the good time of his government
We are tormented and suppressed all day long with no cause.
