Long Arm Of The Law

In cumberland kentucky
On a cool hot evening
Billy lay in love with marrianne
She was a rich judges daughter
He was a son of a miner
But that night their love was more than they could stand
The judge said to his daughter
That son of that coal miner
Is someone youll go hell to leave alone
She knew his dad so well
She knew she couldnt tell
But the truth was bound in show before too long
Their love had started growing on its own
You cant out run the long arm of the law
No, you cant out run the long arm of the law
Billy placed his hand on mary
And he felt the babys moving
Kissed her and said Ill see you when I can
The judge had made a promise
When he caught up with billy
Hed sent him far away from marianne
The whole town knew hed do it
Too many times hed proved it
To at least a hundred men behind the wall
Hed smiled behind that frown
And when he brought that gavel down
He called himself the long arm of the law
And hed set his mind on seeing billy fall
In a hot humid mine shack
A mid-white pulled the sheet back
And placed cool damp towel on marianne
Billys eyes were wide with wonder
From the spell he was under
When she placed the new born baby in his hands
He didnt hear the siren
Just a babys crying
That miracle of love was all he saw
When the door came crashing down
And billy turned around
He felt the heart and soul inside him fall
He stood face to face
With the long arm of the law
You cant out run the long arm of the law
No, you cant out run the long arm of the law
You can hide out for a while
He says with a smile
But you cant out run the long arm of the law
Seemed like everybody down in cumberland kentucky
Came out that day to see poor billys trial
The court was called to order
There sat the judges daughter
She looked so proud
Holding billys child
When they brought billy to him
The judge just look right thru him
As he held that holy Bible in his hand
And he smiled at his grandson
Then his eyes cut back to billy
And said I think this time
The law will understand
Son, I sentence you to live with marianne
You cant out run the long arm of the law
No, you cant out run the long arm of the law
He said to billy with a smile
I know you hide out for a while
Ah but you cant out run the long arm of the law
No you cant out run the long arm of the law

The Law Of Nature

the tree is not here to please
us, that will be too much to require it
it is already too pleasing
with its shade and fruits and wood
we are trying to make it understand
it cannot, with
or without us the tree simply unloads
what it cannot keep forever
it is the law of nature embedded
in its barks
and pith
to simply give and not us why
to be all self-giving without asking anything
in return

To Digress The Law

How long will this be in the heart of the prophets?
For the prophets who prophesy lies are still around my people;
And i have seen them making up schemes to digress the law,
And devising a plan to dissuade my people! !
How long shall this be?
Yet still, they say that all is well;
And where are the ethics of my people? !
For the false prophets around have captured their minds.
Positive is the way ahead and truth is beautiful,
But for the lack of knowledge my people perish in your hands;
And the whole world is deceived as at now,
But these false prophets say that all is well.
We are now in the state of dilemma without control,
But blessed is the one whose eyes do see;
So chisel out the tablets and tell them the truth,
For how long shall they lead my people in the dark? !
The truth is always beside us if only if we will look around for it,
And it is like the muse of my love in the land of peace;
So be very wise on this earth before it is too late,
For not all that glitters around you is gold.

Lay Down The Law

Gregs gonna lay down the law
Gregs gonna lay down the law
Youve got to show me
Lay down the law
Youve got to show me
G. love
Oh brother greg see Ive been watchin you
Wherever you go then trouble follows too
You better take some time to figure out whats wrong
You better live your life and try to be so strong
Oh brother greg this time youve taken it too far
Thats when your girlfriend stole my vcr
Drove to the pawnshop in my landlords car
Now shes got the money and the drugs
And you a junkie like a thug
Gregs gonna lay down the law
Gregs gonna lay down the law
Youve got to show me
Lay down the law
Youve got to show me
Smiles
Brother greg
Its been a long long time
Since we maxed it nice
Got fresh
By that seashore line
It was easy
Getting glazed up in the ocean
Time pull pull the tide
Ride waves feel the motion
Then we got parted
Separted like the seas
Felt like I was all alone
In a different country
But now were back together, man
And never shall we part
Found the link
Got electricity
Here to stand tall
Gregs gonna lay down the law
Gregs gonna lay down the law
All fellas
Cant you see
That you could be
All that you
Want to be
Wont you just come along
Hear the brothers sing your song
Brother greg has gone away
Hell be back some lonesome day
So wont you just lay the law
This just might be your last call
Gregs gonna lay down the law
Gregs gonna lay down the law
Gregs gonna lay down the law

Secrets Of The Law Of God

Truly who
can know
interpret

secrets
hidden

within
the laws
of God?

How long
for how
many years

must one
study
to know

secrets
secrets of
the law?

There is no secret
read the ten commandments
read obey the laws

never forgetting
all sin
all fall short

of the glory of God.

Remove the rafter
of sin
within your own eye

before
you speak out
about

the splinter
of sin
within your

brothers
sisters
eyes.

N ever forgetting
love covers
a multitude of sin.

Never forgetting
love your neighbor
as you love yourself.

Do unto
your neighbour
as you

would have
done
unto yourself.

Who then
is your
neighbor?

Your neighbor
in this day
in this age
is the entire world.

Never forget
Jesus said
“Love the Lord

your God with all your heart
and with all your soul
and with all your mind.”

This is the first
and greatest
commandment.

And the second is like it:
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

All the Law and the Prophets
hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22: 37-40.

So simple
are the secrets
of the laws

so simple
a small child
can understand

can obey.

“Love the LORD your God
with all your heart
and with all your soul
and with all your strength.” Deuteronomy 6: 5.

“Do not seek revenge
or bear a grudge
against anyone
among your people,

but love your neighbor
as yourself. I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19: 18.

You have been told
again and again
you have been commanded.
Do not deny it.
Do not pretend
you do not understand.

When will you listen
when will you obey
the word of your God?

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

The Law

The sun may be clouded, yet ever the sun
Will sweep on its course till the cycle is run.
And when onto chaos the systems are hurled,
Again shall the Builder reshape a new world.

Your path may be clouded, uncertain your goal;
Move on, for the orbit is fixed for your soul.
And though it may lead into darkness of night,
The torch of the Builder shall give you new light.

You were, and you will be: know this while you are,
Your spirit has travelled both long and afar.
It came from the Source, to the Source it returns;
The spark that was lighted, eternally burns.

It slept in the jewel, it leaped in the wave,
It roamed in the forest, it rose in the grave,
It took on strange garbs for long eons of years,
And now in the soul of yourself it appears.

From body to body your spirit speeds on;
It seeks a new form when the old one is gone;
And the form that it finds is the fabric you wrought
On the loom of the mind, with the fibre of thought.

As dew is drawn upward, in rain to descend,
Your thoughts drift away and in destiny blend.
You cannot escape them; or petty, or great,
Or evil, or noble, they fashion your fate.

Somewhere on some planet, sometime and somehow,
Your life will reflect all the thoughts of your now.
The law is unerring; no blood can atone;
The structure you rear you must live it alone.

From cycle to cycle, through time and through space,
Your lives with your longings will ever keep pace.
And all that you ask for, and all you desire,
Must come at your bidding, as flames out of fire.

Once list to that voice and all tumult is done,
Your life is the life of the Infinite One’
In the hurrying race you are conscious of pause,
With love for the purpose and love for the cause.

You are your own devil, you are your own God,
You fashioned the paths that your footsteps have trod;
And no one can save you from error or sin,
Until you shall hark to the spirit within.

The Law Of The Yukon

This is the law of the Yukon, and ever she makes it plain:
"Send not your foolish and feeble; send me your strong and your sane --
Strong for the red rage of battle; sane for I harry them sore;
Send me men girt for the combat, men who are grit to the core;
Swift as the panther in triumph, fierce as the bear in defeat,
Sired of a bulldog parent, steeled in the furnace heat.
Send me the best of your breeding, lend me your chosen ones;
Them will I take to my bosom, them will I call my sons;
Them will I gild with my treasure, them will I glut with my meat;
But the others -- the misfits, the failures -- I trample under my feet.
Dissolute, damned and despairful, crippled and palsied and slain,
Ye would send me the spawn of your gutters -- Go! take back your spawn again.

"Wild and wide are my borders, stern as death is my sway;
From my ruthless throne I have ruled alone for a million years and a day;
Hugging my mighty treasure, waiting for man to come,
Till he swept like a turbid torrent, and after him swept -- the scum.
The pallid pimp of the dead-line, the enervate of the pen,
One by one I weeded them out, for all that I sought was -- Men.
One by one I dismayed them, frighting them sore with my glooms;
One by one I betrayed them unto my manifold dooms.
Drowned them like rats in my rivers, starved them like curs on my plains,
Rotted the flesh that was left them, poisoned the blood in their veins;
Burst with my winter upon them, searing forever their sight,
Lashed them with fungus-white faces, whimpering wild in the night;

"Staggering blind through the storm-whirl, stumbling mad through the snow,
Frozen stiff in the ice-pack, brittle and bent like a bow;
Featureless, formless, forsaken, scented by wolves in their flight,
Left for the wind to make music through ribs that are glittering white;
Gnawing the black crust of failure, searching the pit of despair,
Crooking the toe in the trigger, trying to patter a prayer;
Going outside with an escort, raving with lips all afoam,
Writing a cheque for a million, driveling feebly of home;
Lost like a louse in the burning . . . or else in the tented town
Seeking a drunkard's solace, sinking and sinking down;
Steeped in the slime at the bottom, dead to a decent world,
Lost 'mid the human flotsam, far on the frontier hurled;
In the camp at the bend of the river, with its dozen saloons aglare,
Its gambling dens ariot, its gramophones all ablare;
Crimped with the crimes of a city, sin-ridden and bridled with lies,
In the hush of my mountained vastness, in the flush of my midnight skies.
Plague-spots, yet tools of my purpose, so natheless I suffer them thrive,
Crushing my Weak in their clutches, that only my Strong may survive.

"But the others, the men of my mettle, the men who would 'stablish my fame
Unto its ultimate issue, winning me honor, not shame;
Searching my uttermost valleys, fighting each step as they go,
Shooting the wrath of my rapids, scaling my ramparts of snow;
Ripping the guts of my mountains, looting the beds of my creeks,
Them will I take to my bosom, and speak as a mother speaks.
I am the land that listens, I am the land that broods;
Steeped in eternal beauty, crystalline waters and woods.
Long have I waited lonely, shunned as a thing accurst,
Monstrous, moody, pathetic, the last of the lands and the first;
Visioning camp-fires at twilight, sad with a longing forlorn,
Feeling my womb o'er-pregnant with the seed of cities unborn.
Wild and wide are my borders, stern as death is my sway,
And I wait for the men who will win me -- and I will not be won in a day;
And I will not be won by weaklings, subtle, suave and mild,
But by men with the hearts of vikings, and the simple faith of a child;
Desperate, strong and resistless, unthrottled by fear or defeat,
Them will I gild with my treasure, them will I glut with my meat.

"Lofty I stand from each sister land, patient and wearily wise,
With the weight of a world of sadness in my quiet, passionless eyes;
Dreaming alone of a people, dreaming alone of a day,
When men shall not rape my riches, and curse me and go away;
Making a bawd of my bounty, fouling the hand that gave --
Till I rise in my wrath and I sweep on their path and I stamp them into a grave.
Dreaming of men who will bless me, of women esteeming me good,
Of children born in my borders of radiant motherhood,
Of cities leaping to stature, of fame like a flag unfurled,
As I pour the tide of my riches in the eager lap of the world."

This is the Law of the Yukon, that only the Strong shall thrive;
That surely the Weak shall perish, and only the Fit survive.
Dissolute, damned and despairful, crippled and palsied and slain,
This is the Will of the Yukon, -- Lo, how she makes it plain!

If the law is an ass
does the law make an ass
of people who follow ass laws?

You Have To Lay Down The Law

It is very sad
But the truth is that you
Have to lay down the law
When you are dealing with ignorant
People in your life
Otherwise they won't respect you

The Law That Isn't

The law that isn't!
But should be...
Integrity.
Integrity.

All kinds of crime,
Have been defined.
But...
One escapes from a state of mind.

Integrity!
The law that isn't.
Integrity.
integrity!

The One Who Simply Looks

In the mirror, as the shadow falls across, then
for a precious fraction of a second,
The One Who Simply Looks
looks at itself…
then - whoops –

it’s old familiar Me…

if you’re curious,
remember this.

The Law Is...

The law is not only laid down for a righteous person,
But also for the lawless and disobedient!
For the unrighteous and the sinners,
For the unholy and profane,
For liars and for perjurers,
And all who oppose a sound doctrine!

The law of Mendel

Your love for someone is not absolute
Nor is your hate for someone absolute.
Love is dominant with hate recessive.
Hate is dominant with love recessive.
The recessive can turn dominant in time.
The law of Mendel is operative.

Be Ruthless The Law

Be punishment heavier than
The benefit caused by the wrong.
Be the punishment severer than
The pain caused by the crime.
Be the punishment double
For wrongs of the custodian of laws.
Ruthlessness is the characteristic
Of the law of enforcement.

I Hate The Law

Because of my age we are worlds apart
NO matter how far we are, he has my heart
It hurts to know how far we are
It seems like he is lost in mars
Age, does it really matter?
Because of the law my heart is battered
Oh how I hate you Law
I wish you would fall

Let Us Disregard Our Knowledge Of The Law

there is a big rock
in the middle of the road
where we pass
for home

let us relate
review what we feel
when we were kids then
not knowing the law

let us kick it then
and with a pick axe
let us break this rock
and on the broken pieces
let us run over them
and begin to
play our own
games

The Law

Test the spirits to see whether they are of Yahweh,
And love out of a pure heart.
Do not be cowards in doing what is right,
For cowards die many times before their death.
Deceivableness of sin,
The law is not only laid down for a righteous person but,
Also for the lawless and disobedient

The Law II

I will come to it so don't worry,
And like the muse of your love so seen by me;
But awake to the law and learn from my muse,
Because you are all that i need!

I went against the law and,
The law caught me! !
So learn how to be straight always;
Because we need these laws always to guide us on!

Love Is The Law

ft. Paul Kelly

Love Is The Law
Though I speak in tongues of angels
And in many tongues of men
Though prophecy may sing through me
Without love I'm nothing

Though I understand all mysteries
And can see the story's end
Though my faith can move mountains
Without love I'm nothing

Love is the law

The Law of the Gun

Even though we parted many years ago
the mother of my children
has a special place in my heart.

She gave me the most precious gift
that anyone can give

she gave me immortality.

Through my children
and their children's children
my spirit shall live on.

And there shall be new generations
of people respecting people
and not the law of the gun.


(2001)
