Unbelievable Is What the World Is

Sonnet-

Unbelievable is what the world is
Racism, terrorism, scarcity
How can we all go on living like this
Killing in all the Wars, we share pity

Here in America, we can share peace
We must live together, or die alone
We should sit down like the pilgrams and just feast
A soldiers scars will forever be shown

No matter the person, we are equal
Anyones race, religion, skin color
Let's Hope we don't have a World War sequal
Had two World Wars do not want another

Unbelievable is what the world is
Peace, Love, Happiness, and we can stop this

What The World Needs Now

(hal david/burt bacharach)
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone
Lord we don't need another mountain
There are mountains and hillsides
Enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers
Enough to cross. enough to last
'till the end of time
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone
Lord we don't need another meadow
There are corn fields and wheat fields
Enough to grow
There are sun beams and moon beams
Enough to shine
Oh listen lord if you want to know
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
What the world needs now

Ball Of Confusion (That's What The World Is Today)

(b. strong/n. whitfield)
Producer: martyn ware and greg walsh
Album: the collected recordings (94)
People moving out,
People moving in,
Why, because of the color of their skin,
Run, run, run, but you just cant hide.
An eye for an eye,
Tooth for a tooth,
Vote for me and Ill set you free,
Rap on, brother, rap on.
Well, the only person talking about loving thy brother is the preacher,
And it seems nobodys interested in learning, but the teacher,
Segregation, demonstration, intergration, determination, aggravation, humiliation,
Obligation to our nation.
Ball of confusion,
Thats what the world is today, hey.
The sale of pills is at an all time high,
Young folks walk with their heads in the sky,
The cities aflame in the summertime,
And oh the beat goes on.
Evolution, revolution, gun control, sound of soul-shooting rockets to the moon,
Kids growing up too soon,
Politicians say, "more taxes will solve everything,"
The band played on.
So, round and around and around we go,
Where the worlds headed, nobody knows
Oh, great googamooga,
Cant you hear me talking to you,
Just a ball of confusion,
Thats what the world is today, hey.
Fear in the air, tension everywhere,
Unemployment rising fast,
The beatles new records a gas,
And the only safe place to live,
Is on an indian reservation,
The band played on.
Eve of destruction, tax deduction,
City inspectors, bill collectors, mod clothes in demand,
Population out of hand, suicide, too many bills,
Hippies moving to the hills,
People all over the world are shouting, "end the war!",
And the band played on.
Great googamooga,
Cant you hear me talking to you,
Just a ball of confusion,
Thats what the world is today, yea-yea,
Just a ball of confusion,
Tell ya thats what the world is today, yea-yea,
Just a ball of confusion, oh!

We Are Still The World

amidst all these
collisions
when planets shatter
into
insignificant pieces
when space
eats all of us
dusts to dusts
we shall return
yet we are still
the world
just the two
of us

What the World Needs Now

A cure for war
This incurable birth defect
Infectious disease making house calls

The war mentality
Causality of casualties
The replicas of sons and daughters

A house, no longer a home
The ultimate tomb awaiting
Unrelenting lack of remorse
Endorsing and enforcing

War’s religious reign
War’s religious reign
Raining mass murder fertilizing
The death of humanity

What the world needs now
A cure for war

What The World Is Waitnig For

Here comes the wise man
And there goes the fool
Can you see the burned out world that he is living in
I dont need to look for the rules
Here comes the donkey
Chained ten ton plough
Hell never make that hill in a million years
Whip crack, beat him down
He loves his brother hed sell him for a fistful of gold
But he needs a slave for his vision of the promised land
No I dont believe a word
Take me any way the wind blows
Youll never know just what you want to do
Or where you wanna go I think its time
That you found what the world is waiting for
I think its time to get real
Repeat (here comes..)
Anytime you want it, then its there
All you gotta do is stop me
On the corner and ask
Say hey, you dont live today
Stop the world
Stop the world
Im getting off
Im getting off
Cant get enough
Im getting off

The World Has No Edge

THE WORLD HAS NO EDGE

The world has no edge,
And yet we fear falling off it-
It has no roof
Yet we fear the roof collapsing-
The world is not a pit
Yet we fear falling into it-
What the world is does not seem to matter-
Wherever we are
We know
We can be crushed by it
In an instant.

The World is a Place I've Never Been

The world is a place I've never been
Snow-topped mountains,
Blissful plains,
Roaring big cities.
But are places the world?

Is home the world?
If home's the world
I've been to the world.
But what makes home?
Does a place make a home?
Do people make a home?
Maybe people are the world.

What The World Would Say If It Could Talk

Look at me
See the butterflies fly away
See the world in my eyes

See the shadows in the sky
See the fallen angels
Of a world gone by
Look into my eyes
See your life go by

See the magic in the sky
See the anger in the clouds
See the thunder
See the lightning in my eyes
See what you've done to my life

You destroyed
Everything I ever gave

In The World To Day

in the world to day
people see other people
not by who they are
but what they are

in the world today
people kill other people
not for what they did
but for what they are

in the wor tomarrow
people see other people
not what they are
but who they are

in the world tomarrow
people kill other people
not for what they are
but for what they did

If The World

If The World were only paved in stars
Instead of lies and signs and stars
We wouldn't have to be so afraid of what we are
If The World were only paved in stars
If The World were only made of light
Instead of banks and fame and fights
We wouldn't feel so utterly alone at night
If The World were only made of light
If The World were only composed of sky
Instead of fears and confusion and cries
We wouldn't be so hesitant to fly
If the world were only composed of sky

Why the World

Why the world - Why are we here -
You may ask how but never why -
The world is always flowing -
Heraclitus said long ago
it's never the same river -
And we are always changing -
Learning and growing - seeing
The world with different eyes
And soon become new people
Creating a world in constant flow -
A restless world with more to learn
Than ever thought was still unknown

The World

Your love is worth more than all the riches in the world.
To imagine life without you is the most bitter pill it burns.
I'll give you all I have and more,
because the world only began when you were born.

Let everyother man fight for earth because your love is my whole world.
No other can compare to you,
their lack of depth and richness too,
could never suffice or ever do.

Your eyes reveal a world of love.
With depthness through and sweetnees tune.
Your voice so fair like birds singing in open air.

The world you are,
and the world you'll be.
Forever with supreme epic meaning to me.

Sonnet- The World Today(14)

People with intact eyes, yet appear blind;
Peop1e with alert ears seem not to hear;
People with intact nose, no sme11 can find;
People with every joy appear to tear.

People are cheats and cheat themselves all life;
People tell lies to men and to themselves;
People well-off, appear to be in strife;
People are bad and appear worse than Elves.

The world is bad and so people turn bad;
The world isn’t true and so people are not;
The world is mad and so people turn mad;
The world's a show and people simply plot.

And people waste their time and waste others';
And people aren't true to their own brothers.

Money Makes the World Go Round

ft. Daz

[Scarface:]

Money makes the world go round
Money makes me do all things I do
Hang with my homies smoke weed drink brew
Ride down Belford one deep and ?? crew
And money makes the world go round
Money makes the world go round
Living in a mansion one day with my wife
Stack me up some papers these days one night
If wind stop blowing these days than my sight
Winds start blowing I'm paid trump tight
Got to have papers these days in my life
I got to have paper these days of my life

[Chorus: Repeat 6X]

Money makes the world go round

Without a doubt
They all want to see about a clout
They don't know
Don't want to know or see what its about
We faced with danger do any thing for the paper
Scarred for life of the street mentality done made us
Watch out for the snakes and fakes
Out to take what's yours so prepare and beware
Money makes the world go round for some niggers
Money makes the world kill all niggers quicker
Its reala

The Peace of God vs. The Peace of The World

-God says I give you the peace of God, that passes all Understanding
The World says ' I will give you peace' but the world doesn't tell you that that peace is just too Demanding.
-God says Love thy neighhbor
The world says hate thy enemy and love only under certain circumstances.
-God says I will show you the way, for I am a lamp unto your feet
The world says You are on your own.
*The peace of God vs the Peace of the World

The world says ' Go head girl put cha leg up' and that 69 is fine
-The Lord says: ' Have fun' but Honor me cus I am yours and you are Mine.
The world says ' this ain't burger king, you can't always have it your way'.
-The Lord says 'don't worry, tommorrow will be a brighter day'!
The world gives you hope, peace and joy that is only temporary
-But the Lord gives you joy like a river overflowing, smiles that have other people glowing.
He makes your enemy your footstool,
whereas the world lets everyone walk all over you.
The world gives you a candle that will soon burn out
-God gives you a lamp, that will eliminate all doubt
* The peace of God vs the Peace of the world.

Oh the illusions of peace from the world
And the reality of God's Peace
It gives you the ability to teach
the ability to preach
and the ability to face seen and unseen realities.
oh the illusion s seem similar,
But NO, OH NO there are NO commonalities!

So which one will you take?
The Peace of God or the Peace of the World.

In the World of Frail-Brick Words

I diligently built a solid world of
Frail-brick-words around you
When winds of fear
Uproot me from
All possible directions
I cling to your torso
In this solid world
Of frail-brick-words

Going round and round
In the square fantasy of yours
I always miss the centre
In this solid world
Of frail-brick-words

You're always on look out
To live a fantasy; travelled against
Time to reach my solid world
Of frail-brick-words
Expecting to drench yourself
In raining silver droplets

I traversed across
Terrains unknown to you
Sipping at the venom of
Reality for vigour, investing
Every nth part with an aura
Of fantasy in the solid world
Of frail-brick-words

Midway
We met

Between you and I
The dichotomy of
Your fantasy
My reality
Opened a newer dimension
Of realantasy to grapple with
Ah, this solid world
Of frail-brick-words!

In my snatches of proximity(?)
To the threshold of your world
I sought my own happiness
My very own sorrow...
The slightly opened door
Blended excellently
The lethal reality with
Honey-oozing fantasy
To brew a magic potion
To savour in my solitude
In this solid world
Of frail-brick-words

Every touch of your fingers
Hoisted flags of unexpressed sorrow
That rustled in every other life

Whoever said,
Life and living is
A cuppa one relaxes with?

You know
Those lucky, get a door
Opened to live a fantasy, at least
For a wink and there just in that
Fleeting moment of time
You traveled against time to grab
And encase yourself in a dropp of silver
Within the coarsely granulated
World of my frail-brick-words

In this solid world
Of frail-brick-words
The gush of words
You released on my wrinkling skin
Arrange themselves time and again
As what the world calls poetry
The words flip flap against
My make-believe-sky
And in the solid tomb where
I rest forever irrespective of seasons
Where pain or pleasure
Can no longer touch me

Ah, my very own solid world
Of frail-brick-words...

Subjects That Are Taboo Mar 16th,2011

Has the “dying with dignity” debate reached the public yet?
Does it cause politicians to break out in a cold sweat?
Is it a religious thing or is it just not politically correct?
Should a long slow painful death be what we expect?

And why is the appointed Supreme Court allowed to decide?
Why not the politicians and parliament with lots of pride?
What do they talk about at these closed-door committee meetings?
If someone brought up death with dignity, are they subject to beatings?

Do our politicians think that they will never die?
And they will always be reelected and no one will ask why
Is assisted suicide on a list of things for them to do?
Or is it added to a long list of subjects that are taboo?
