Ppl will only want to hear what they want to hear

why do i feel like,
there something wrong with me,
i don't feel normal,
i take it out on myself,
thinking,
there must be something i can do,
but i fail to find an answer,
i had opened up to ppl,
some pretend to not care,
but still ask what's wrong,
it becomes so much,
i just stop explaining,
why explain,
when you know it isn't what,
they want to hear,
you are only wasting breathe,
some ppl listen,
but try to fix me by telling,
there nothing you can do,
stop living in the past it won't not help you,
how do you tell somebody,
who have been running from there past,
to not return and learn from it?
it makes no sense,
to not deal with a problem,
that changed my life,
in more ways than i can say,
is just the last thing,
you would want to tell a person.

A Song No One Wants To Hear

Shall we make a song for all man's sins
that no one wants to hear?
Shall we sing it loud and boisterous,
sing it loud and clear?

We could twist the notes and bend them
so they would bring a tear
to atone for all man's sinful ways
and sing it every year.

On days we mourn
On days we fear
On days we hate
when sins are here.

A song to wake up sinful minds
and teach them love prevails,
a song to reach out 'til it finds
the hurt that sin unveils.

Shall we make a song for all man's sins
that no one wants to hear?
Yes, I say, 'Let's make one up
and sing it loud and clear.'

Give The People What They Want

Hey, hey, hey...
Give the people what they want
Well, its been said before, the world is a stage
A different performance with every age.
Open the history book to any old page
Bring on the lions and open the cage.
Give the people what they want
You gotta give the people what they want
The more they get, the more they need
And every time they get harder and harder to please
The roman promoters really did things right.
They needed a show that would clearly excite.
The attendance was sparse so they put on a fight
Threw the christians to the lions, sold out every night
Give the people what they want
You gotta give the people what they want
The more they get, the more they need
And every time they get harder and harder to please
Give em lots of sex, perversion and rape
Give em lots of violence, and plenty to hate
Give the people what they want
Give the people what they want
When olswald shot kennedy, he was insane
But still we watch the re-runs again and again
We all sit glued while the killer takes aim
Hey mom, there goes a piece of the presidents brain!
Give the people what they want
You gotta give the people what they want
Blow out your brains, and do it right
Make sure its prime time and on a saturday night.
You gotta give the people what they want
You gotta give the people what they want
Give the people what they want
Give the people what they want
Give the people what they want

No One Wants To Remember The Tragedy

THIS Is the old house
that negligence burned

you must remember two bodies
still at arms with each other

less the scream for help
where no help is available

less the struggle to escape
where no exit is found

they huddled upon themselves
as smoke choked them as fire finally consumed them

this is the place where beams fell down
charred and ashed

soon the grass will cover all these
the scream becomes part of the song of the winds

another one shall come and take this
place anew

to grow dreams again
no one wants to remember

what was it all about
shall one forever keep the truth?

One eternal sound frame, the Truth is its Name* - Revised

He is the One,
The Truth is his Name,
He is the only creator,
Him no fear ever claimed.

He has no enemy,
Uncaptured by time frame,
He is self existent,
By true Guru’s Grace claim.

He was the primal truth
Unfolding through the ages,
Uncontested truth at present,
His truth will future blaze.

*Refrain of Sri Guru Granth Sahib
I accept rendering blemishes, might be many, with due apologies.

The truth

The truth is what we don't see
It is the innocent glace across the room
full of admiration, love and pain
Secrets,
So many secrets hidden in one glance
We cover the truth with lies of approval,
so that no one judges us,
so we fit in,
but really, People will always judge us,
we will never fit in,
We dont need their approval,
All we need in love, happiness and peace in our souls
But the truth will never be known
Because were too busy seeking the approval
of those who will never approve.

The Truth, The Whole Truth, And Nothing But The Truth

Witnesses in trials in the US are asked to swear
to 'tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth'.

It is impossible to tell the whole truth. Only God is omniscient.
It is impossible to tell the truth. Human beings, like church stained
glass with the sun, always filter the truth, We can only project what
we are, the particular rung of frequency on which we are perched.

*********

Defense attorneys exaggerate and select because their first duty
is to their clients. Prosecutors withhold exculpatory evidence
and send innocents to jail because scalps on the belts are good
for their careers.

In our political system, the higher one goes, the greater the number
of corrupt judges. Those who have honored the truth the least
ask others to abide by higher standards than the judiciary.

Love Is Only Blind When We Don't Want To See The Truth

it just funny,
how some guys will choose,
girls they don't know,
draw them in,
and mess with them,
they make you feel special,
make you feel like the one,
it all happens so quick,
you think it was love,
but love can be blind,
we see what we want,
until it catches up with us,
and we wonder how we got in this mess,
we think it becuz the guy loved us,
but in reality,
all they wanted was,
to turn us into what they want,
they want us to be there puppet,
not there one and only,
if that was the case,
they would want to take their time,
open us like a present,
and charish us,
not use, change and throw away,
we are better than that,
to be treated by a guy,
with little respect,
we only take it,
becuz we feel lucky to find us somebody,
who cares and open there heart,
but when you listen closely,
you realize how selective they are,
telling you what you want to hear,
and in the end,
they want you to accept their past,
but it seems like they can't accept your,
selfish people don't deserve good people,
but you see it happen,
in more ways than none,
but the only person that can stop it,
is the person that is in,
this type of relationship.

The Value Of Compromise Goals

A decision to park and drive
Anyway one pleases
In a relationship of two
When one chooses to stop and go
With a doing of what they want to do,
Is not worth having the patience
To toot a horn and become forlorn,
Whenever a blocking is being done.

It is better to back up and find,
Another route to take to ease one's mind.
Since someone in this union sits,
With wishes of wanting to direct!
And this is a stubborn situation,
In which one wants total control.
And is lost in the meaning of relationships,
To understand the value of compromise goals.

The Truth

The Truth
So here we are
We are alone
There's weight on your mind
I wanna know
The truth
If this is how you feel
Say it to me
If this was ever real
[Chorus:]
I want the truth
From you
Give me the truth
Even if it hurts me
I want the truth
From you
Give me the truth
Even if it hurts me
I want the truth
So this is you
You talking to me
You found a million ways to let me down
So I'm not hurt when you're not around
I was blind
But now I see
This is how you feel
Say it to me
If this was ever real
[Chorus]
I know that this will break me
I know that this might make me cry
You gotta say what's on your mind, on your mind
I know that this will hurt me
And break my heart and soul inside
But I don't wanna live this life
[Chorus]
I don't care no more, no
Just give me the truth
Give me the truth
Cuz I don't care no more
Give me the truth
Cuz I don't care no more, no
Just give me the truth
Give me the truth
Give me the truth
Give me the truth
Give me the truth
Cuz I don't care no more, no

The Valley Road

While no one was looking on the old plantation
He took her all the way down the long valley road
They sent her away not too much later
Left him walking down the old valley road.
Sometimes I lead, sometimes I follow
This time Ill go where she wants me to go
She said maybe today, maybe tomorrow
Go deep in the woods down the long valley road
Walk on walk on little doll walk
Walkon little doll
Out in the hall they were talkin in a whisper
Everybody noticed she was gone a while
Somebody said she was gone to her sisters
Everyone knew what they were talkin about.
While no one was looking on the old plantation
He showed her what they do down the long valley road
Came back around like nothin really happened
Left him standing on the old valley road
Walk on walk on little doll walk on
Walk on little doll
Walk on, walk on the valley road
Standing like a stone on the old plantation
Rich old man wouldnt ever let him in
Good enough to hire, not good enough to marry
When it all happens, nobody wins
Walk on walk on little doll walk on
Walkon little doll etc

Truth and Lies

Is the truth beyond our lies,
Say what you want,
Watch what you say,
For our hidden lies, we must pay.

In the darkness of the night,
In the brightness of the day,
Truth and lies have gone astray.

Does your truth contain a lie?
Black as coal, the midnight sky.
Truth will shine,
It is the light,
To tell the truth,
With a soul so bright.

Is truth defined just in the mind?
In the Prince of Darkenss lies defined.
Love of the truth will scorn the Devil,
Our truth must stay at our highest level.

Of these shortcomings,
Are we aware?
That we speak of lies so unaware!
Every lie turns the truth aside,
Our secret truths, we sometimes hide.

You Know, The Reflection You Don't Recognize

You know
its kind of weird
when you look
in the mirror
and cant decide
exactly who
you are really
looking at

You know
its kinda stupid
when you fall
to your knees
and pray
to a god
that you don't
even believe in

You know
its kinda rude
when someone says
that you've changed
into something
that isn't what
they want to
see anymore

and this is why
i'm standing here
in front of this
tainted mirror
thinking that
maybe there is
some truth
in their words

You know
what i mean
to say when
i try to explain
that i have
lost my image
in this reflection
that i see

You know
how it feels
to collapse to
a world that
engulfs you
into thinking that
you are not
what they wanted

You know
what its like
to feel defeated
day to day
by the little words
people say
that distort the
image in the mirror

and then i ask
do you know
how it feels
to stand and
see the reflection
of someone
that you don't
recognize in
a mirror of nothing
but yourself

So Much Beauty In Dirt

Out of breath and out of cash,
find yourself watching M.A.S.H., every night on the couch.
Woman says let's take a drive down south,
roll down the windows and open our mouths
taste where we are and play the music loud.
Stop the car, lay on the grass,
the planets spin and we watch space pass.
Walk a direction, see where we get.
I never knew nothin' so there's nothin' to forget.
Get real drunk and ride our bikes.
There's so much beauty it could make you cry.
The rich get money but never what they want.
Find ourselves a new place to haunt.
Climb up the fire escape do it 'til the ground looks far away.
Go night swimming, leave our clothes on the ground,
when we get busted we just stand there proud.
It's the truth we all been wrong make it up and let's move on.
cry.

Some Things Do Hurt

some things shall hurt
they are designed for that purpose
by some people
these architects of pain
but we shall not be swayed
into the ways of the curse
and degradation

let them draw the plan
and let them construct what they
want to

they will make doors that lock
when we get in
and we shall have to look for ways
ourselves to get out
from their schemes

they will make windows that will only close
and not open and we shall look for
holes where we can take in air
and breathe

we shall be their pawns
and the experimental guinea pigs of their
pains and distress

they may laugh for a while
and drink to our fate
they may proclaim that they are winning
to their pre-conceived notions
of what they believe as our own
stupidity and gullibility

we shall wait for the time
and that is what we are also designed to do
we shall wait when they all fall asleep
drunk to their evil ways
for soon this darkness will turn the table
and side with us

and we shall have the time to open the windows
and summon the moon to hear our pleas
to unlock the doors and summon the sun
to brighten our twilights of woes

we escape and we shall see that house of pain burned
to ashes
now it is our time
the last laugh, our freedom, our revenge.

Not Recognized

Too much time is spent,
Getting our minds bent out of shape...
Identifying what isn't here.
Or 'there'
Or...
What hasn't happened.
Who could do what but didn't...
With a lot of 'why',
Without reason to get things done!

Making excuses not to motivate each one
Of us...
To extend beyond our reach!
Teaching...
To take an active part.
Appreciating what is here,
And making clear our respect
Of what we do have!
Instead of destroying it...
Because our 'whims' are not immediately satisfied.

Like the spoiled creatures we are,
Crying about a harvest reaped
Only a few take time to get to know,
And keep...
From the 'art' of sowing!

But like the greed of spectators,
We expect to be fed from a growth
Of a dwindling bounty!
And blame those we do who toil in the fields.
Those who are there...
And have learned how to yield...
The fruits from their sweat and labor!

Leaving those who only savor laziness,
With minimal benefit and much complaint!
And yet everyone is 'taxed' beyond their means!
While those who make no contributions whatsoever...
Are heard whining and screaming the loudest!
Crazed from inactivity!

Taking what they want,
And discarding that which is not recognized!
Like vultures...
Waiting for death,
To prey over scavenged bones.
With ease and temporary contentment!
