Soul pt.1

The bronze skin, water drops onto it,
this glow she gives,
this is beauty. 
You can't scrub it off,
you can't put her down, her 
soul is alight with the 
world's wonder. 

Yo, I wrote this like 2 years ago. CRINGE.  Big Grin

Humid nights

Those nights, blessed
with the most wanted skies. Greys blended
into hints of purple, stars 
seeping through. 
Those nights, where 
you welcome the heat,
your only companion.

Greed 

When I put you first,
why did you put me
last?
I gave you the world, yet
you always craved more.
You wanted more love than
I could give. Oh, how 
selfish of me!

Cool

reminisce........

I reminisce about the first time we kissed
Twenty eleven is when we started the bliss
Fatiha.... refuge in the Lord of the dawn
Reminisce... my kiss with Holy Quran
SubhanAllah....Glory to God

soul killer
soul stealer
i never knew you didnt care
last dance
last chance
when i was down you weren't there
one day
i'll hide away
from all the crazy things that people do

i loved you
through and through
but you would not
admit thee same
i cry
and you lie
i think that is your favorite game

one day i'll hide away from all the crazy things that people do

good bye
my my
i guess it never meant a thing
insane
and you're to blame
is this really happening

one day i'll hide away from all the cay things that people

like to kill
everything around you that is
real

A folk punk song I never managed to put music to...

They're sellin' tickets to the Apocalypse
And givin' us a one-way trip to Hell
They're pretendin' it's a tour of Heaven
And they hope that no one can tell
But see, time's they are a-changin' 
It's just like old Bob used to say
Soon they'll be running to the hills
When the Piper comes for his pay

Well, they'll try to exorcise it 
But they will never have control 
Freedom sings an ageless song
It's the spirit of rock & roll

They read the writings of the profit 
That are written with our tears
Then they preach from their pulpits 
And force feed to us all our fears
It was just like Brother Jon said
We're the victims of our time
But we will never die on our knees
And we won't pay for their crimes

Well, they'll try to exorcise it 
But they will never have control 
Freedom sings an ageless song
It's the spirit of rock & roll

The "profit" in the second verse isn't a typo, but a play on words.

A crust punk song I wrote when I formed a band with someone.  I actually have (noisy) music written for this one, somewhere... Band never worked out since I found out that they guy I was working with was freaking racist.

Break the Chains
Verse I:
We are born to be slaves to the machine 
Nothing but fuel for its never-ending war
Herded like sheep, we are led the the slaughter
Too afraid to rise up against what we deplore 
But it is better to be bloodied but unbowed 
Than to live our lives our life down our knees
So fan the flames that lie in your heart
We are the masters of our own destinies!
Chorus:
Cast of the shackles that bind!
Stand up against our oppressors!
Free yourself from their control;
We were never their lessors!
Break the chains!
Verse II:
Slaves no more, we rise against the machine
Dismantle the system that made us all its tools
Destroy the thing that once held us in bondage
And cast away all of its old, perverse rules
Together we can all herald in a new era
One that is devoid of this wretched misery 
A new hope, a new life, and new world for all
A new future were all of mankind is free

I've come to see in the Land of the Free,  there's only a future for the chosen few.
Billy Bragg - To Have And To Have Not
