This Is The Title

Sentimental mind at ease
Go ahead, do as you please
No more worry here today
As you wander on your way

Fathom loss, ache again
Show me all of your pain
Tears hidden all inside
Suffered for my foolish pride

On and on it goes it seems
Never ending raging stream
Ebb and flow, rising tide
Die a little more inside

For the love that you seek
Acceptance here, we beseech
Remembrance afterwards
What is left, still in reach

Pictures of happy times
Chapter verse, yes it rhymes
Snapshot of a time long ago
Where is the love we long to know

Friend or foe, here we go
Down this road of deepest woe
Time and time and time again
Draw a breath and start again

Eyes that see but then again, no
Seeking for a time of peace
Ears that hear, but deaf to all
As we slip, rise and fall

Feet that fail, trip along
Will we be weak, forever strong
Clash of egos hinder us
Will this last forevermore

Dream of humility, foolish pride
Heart pulled along on a foolish ride
Trampled under the feet of sin
Here I am, lost again

And I wander and wander
On this path
Seeking a moment
That will last
And the best that I can do
Is never good enough

Her I am, on my knees
Looking for a remedy
A word, an herb, a bandage fair
To help with my repair

A light, a sound, a notion please
That will show a reprieve
That the path I am on
Is the one that I belong

And after all is said and done
Will my flesh come undone
And will the things I have done
Be good enough this time

The Contract

Tired and hungry
Down in my luck
Asked the man
If he could spare a buck
He said
Come inside
I have just the thing
That will get you on
Your feet again

He pulled out a contract
The longest I’ve seen
Said this is the one
That everyone sees
It has life and death
And taxes and fees
It costs a small fortune
But everything’s guaranteed

This is a way
To find your feet again
To get you where
You need to be
Just sign this waiver
That you agree
To give your life over
Over to me

We’ll give you all
That you will ever need
No need to work
Or repay the deed
Food is here
For your family
But your children
They will belong to me

They’re education
Is free of charge
But they’ll be taught
That I’m in charge
Of all that they want
All that they wish
All that they believe in
Is here on this list

If they do as they’re told
And speak what I say
They’ll be taken care of
Til they’re dying day
They must turn from their GOD
And worship mother earth
Hand over their children
From their first day here on earth

They must bow to my idols
And give fealty
They must turn from their ways
And sin mightily
Have children with anyone
As long as they’re for me
Sin here upon the streets
Where everyone can see

Make sacrifices to idols
That we will appoint
The blood of your children
Will soon anoint
Don’t worry, it’s safe
We’ve done it before
No one feels a thing
After hitting the floor

We’ve rooms and rooms
To slaughter the poor
No sacrifice to small
That comes through our doors
We’ve men and women
In charge of the lines
They’ll get you through
In the nick of time

Now, before we go on
Is there anything you’d like to say
About what we provide
As services today?
The cost may seem high
But all is included
From your day of birth
Til you take your last breath

I sat for a moment
Dumbstruck, in awe
That there was a man
Selling everything I saw
I looked at my hands
As they signed away
This life that I lived
On this very day

He snatched it away
As fast as he could
Took it from me
And locked it away
He laughed at my plight
Til tears they appeared
Told me to leave
Before he boxed my ears

Now I’m a slave
To the man here in charge
Forever in chains
A slave on this barge
Be careful the contract
The page that you sign
For some of them rob you
Til the end of time
