Twisted promises of the thing that they call love
Not what I would call what dreams are made of
The war torn province of a wounded dove
In a world of push and shove,
Paradise of an illusion cast
When was I loved oh the time has passed
Storm at sea let down the mast
Must be the wicked spell she cast,
Going around in circles now
Somewhere there's a sacred cow
Pissing on the grave of Chairman Mao
And taking my eternal vows,
No matter how much you give
Too many fools who don’t know how to live
Blood pours out just like a sieve
So many atrocities I have to forgive,
Another indifferent day rolls by
Having to improvise on the fly
Time has severed all family ties
The isolation is hardest to defy,
They say move forward and forget the past
Without the Lord how long does your strength last?
The world situation is deteriorating fast
Phantoms at dawn and evil spells cast,
How many times can you roll out of bed?
How many times can you put aside the dread?
How many times must the poor children be fed?
The blood of the innocent always runs red,
You came to me wanting to change your life
But in the end all you caused me was strife
All it took was your thrust of the knife
All I wanted was a faithful wife,
Reflections of unrealized dreams
Somehow I fell victim for other’s schemes
A world of contradictions and useless extremes
All the oppressors and heartless regimes,
Pharaoh laid to rest in a tomb of gold
While most of us fear growing old
Better keep an eye out for black mold
You can’t even trust the majority of what you’re told.
