Silence

Grasping this silence there is the truth only love can be,
In questions sanity becomes clear to the insane now.
Population control this balancing hate from within.

Many miles travelled neutrality fades to time,
Can you stand forthright to injustice a wanting,
This polluted planet comes to force banishing greed.

Hear the many cried that are the lost civilisation,
Embodied under flags with no meaning now.
Ideas imbalanced at the cost mankind today.

Future fades the event horizon no return infinity,
Time elapsed holding you in my arms asleep.
Memories there are few decaying minds.

Overrun with chemicals with atomic fallout,
This history decades end of times soon enough.
Regenerating rock minerals as the lie continues.

Dead seas penetrated mainland courses,
Late in the day pray for your souls.
Lost for our children mocked there is no humour.

Guard politics will rust playing their power games,
No people just numbers of the business plan.
Never worry the wealthy will survive but for no time.

Forgive Us

Raven follows sleep tight as we remind,
Lost in there struggle this sanity awake friend.
This point in time of collapse it runs clear.
We are nowhere hearing clear sounds nothingness.

Hold fast your heart talking there out there,
Clear the pathways hold fast your words spoken.
We were once pure this blistering heat gave life.
Call the rains they saved the saints Earth forgives.
To the stars and back essence energy we need,
feel this now open minds minutes away.
Dancing rainbows never lost to any day.
