What else is New?
People Die, as Large nations fall,
While Greed loves nothing at all,
What once were lies are now considered true
Tell me good sir, what else is new?
It leaves armies of children starving,
While obesity's issue is growing,
A few miles away
Due to political sway
And riots fill the streets
With the sound of running feet
Rage overwhelming the problem at hand
With the bounding beat of a "rebel" rock band
Here we are, the human stew
Mixing in the flavors of me and you
With more deceit that can now be called true
Wake up stupid, what else is new?
If we have a quiet time
In the depth of a roaring crowd,
What makes more reason and rhyme?
Us is our silence, or them in their loud?
If one feels compelled, and pushed one way,
And you fall from your true love and become astray,
If another's problems capture your life,
And temptation takes you with its knife
How do you find your way back above?
Over the fray, with your true love?
You treat her like Nefitiri
And yearn that she can truly see
You in your perfect self
So you can place all others on a shelf
You must make her your universe
And place your heart beneath hers
Let temptation fall away
Never again to lead you astray
In an empty hall, I can hear the call
Of the silence that makes men blind
In an empty hall, I can trawl
For the deepest corners of my mind
In an empty hall, I can fall
From Grace without ability to rise
In an empty hall, I am all
Both Deus and Lord of the Flies.
