Everyone wants to be free[2]

Everyone wants to be free
of injustice and iindignity,
but I just want to be me.

Take me away
from the madding crowd,
where the city
kills my humanity.

Let me see
the beauty of the world
that God has made
in every flower and every tree
and let me find a place
where He can talk to me.

Everyone wants to be free

Everyone wants to be free,
from debt and duty
and responsibility,
but I want to be free
from the daily existence
with the chill
of being foreign
among people in the city.

I long for a better place,
where the night is missing
and everything is perfect
and totally right
and where I can be untroubled
with my Creator.

Everyone Wants To Feel Validated

Today,
Everyone wants to feel validated.
No matter how outrageous their ideals.
Appealing to their sensibilities has become easy,
For me.

If something said or done I find conflicts...
And I realize my response may lead to an argument,
I nod my head in agreement and leave.
People seeking to argue are often upset by that,
Today.

Everyone wants something

Poets bleed for their art
writers need the muse
artists want passion
musicians need the blues.
Lovers want love
loners need to be alone
children like friends
singers need the tone.
Dancers need the rhythm
actors need a stage
drummers crave the beat
workers want a wage.
Everyone wants something
a prisoner longs to be free
I no longer want anything
I'm happy just being me.

Everyone Wants A Home

Everyone wants a home,
a place of rest and tranquillity,
to lay down a tired body in the evening,
where there is only peace and love,
everyone searches for somewhere to come back to,
for a place in the whole universe,
as a small piece of property
where no shadows fall.
Everyone searches for a piece of sun
that always burns in the blue sky
and if we could
for the hand of a darling
and far too quickly our days pass
until all things at a time ends.

Talkin' 'bout The Smiling Deathporn Immortality Blues (Everyone Wants To Live Forever)

(everyone wants to live forever)
Imagination, that's the way that it seems
Man can't only live in his dreams
Oh, it seems so hard.
If i'd lived a thousand times before
And if i'm gonna live anymore
Always brings me down
Everyone wants to live forever
Thinkin' that it'd be a lot better
Everyone wants to live for ever, whoah
The feeling in my head starts heading south
It seems it stops the fever from shootin' out of my mouth
Life gushing all around
Everyone wants to live forever
Thinkin' that it'd be a lot better
Everyone wants to live forever, whoah

Equality

Everybody wants to feel happy, even if you think that you dont
Everyone wants to know the secret, even if you think that you dont
Everybody thinks theyre different from the next man now
But we just got to realize were just the same
Always appear to be someone better
You know there will always appear to be someone worse
You know therell always appear to be someone better
You know therell always appear to be someone worse, oh
Everyone has got their character
Everyone has got their personality
But the longing is still the same
So what is the answer by easy on yourself
Make yourself feel at ease maybe thats the answer
Always appear to be someone better
You know there will always appear to be someone worse
Always appear to be someone better
You know therell always appear to be someone worse, oh
Were just the same dont you know
Were just the same dont you know
Looking over there
He looks different, she looks different
They might even be different
But were just the same, dont you know
Were just the same, dont you know
Were just the same

The magic of playing has to do with how much everyone wants it to succeed. If you have five players in a situation where the music is being improvised and one is determined it is not going to succeed, it won't succeed even if one of the musicians takes control.

The Actress

The actress has stolen my mind by her sweet smile
By her glamorous look and by her gorgeous style

The way she talks to all
Even angels will fall
If they see her talking
I am not talking tall

The way she walks on street
Even saints will have greed
If they see her walking
Yeah I can bet on it

The way she dresses up
Is like hot coffee cup
No one wants to miss it
Everyone wants to sup

Are you Breathless...

Distance makes the faces blurred,
Familiar voices are less often heard…
Don’t just wait and sit alone by phone,
And wait for that call and ring tone.

Have you ever held your breath,
And felt as if you will suffocate?
Oh, what a relief it is to exhale
And then allow yourself to inhale.

I learnt a long time ago,
Everyone wants to be let go…
Love would never clip the wings,
Every heart has a right to sing…

So do I, even if I sing to myself
Don’t we all long to tune to ourselves?

America the USA

The greatest of them all
One that will never fail
Try to give it your best
It will always be above the rest

When you go across the lands
You know you are in good hands
As you travel along the way
Everyone wants to say hello

Every mile you travel will be great
The scenery will be amazing
All the different birds will be singing
What a joy it is to be on your way

Every day has different weather
You will enjoy the great change
Everyone will agree with you today
Even if you have a long delay

L'ecole

School is such a wreck
School is such a bore
Especially with all the stupid little whores
The time drags on
As the teacher talks some more
School is such a bore
School it makes me sick!

Lunch is too short, and class is too long
Everyone is lame
And everyone just wants to play their stupid games
We want to hang out
We want to kickback
We want to leave school
Lets have another walk-out
Maybe even break-out!

School is such a bore
School is such a wreck
I wonder when we get to leave?
As soon as the bell rings?
My teacher looks like an ugly duck
I hope he'll finally shut up!
Hurray! Hurray!
The bell finally rung!

True lies

Come see the world with my eyes.
How beautiful is this true lies

World where everyone manages to smile
Even in pain
A world with no heartburns and
No complain

Where wealthy and the miser live happily
With respect
Where the weak and the strong are trying to solve
The same quest

A world where nature dwells and is
Not confined to boundaries
A world with free mountain river oceans and
God’s sundries

Unbiased world free from racial
Favoritism
Brother to brother with respect
To region, to religion

A world with no war, no complex treaties
A world with no mourning’s and no griefs
A world where everyone smiles in peace
God! Grant my wish; please! ! ! ! ! ! !


Fahim....

Starting Over

Within every life there comes a time
when you need to take a break,
to start something new.
A point at when your life seems stale
and starting over is the only thing to do.
Not everyone wants to do it,
in fact most refuse to try.
They idle away each day,
not realising they need to do something new.
The world passes by them
as they stand at the garden gate
and before they know it
starting over for them is too late.
Therefore, if you need to get out of a rut
before it is too late,
start looking for something new
to enhance your life with beauty,
which you have forgotten what it was like.
Starting over can make you a new person,
sometimes even better than before.

Super Girl

I am not a normal girl in many ways but the one that stands out is the most birdin of them all
people talk normaly to me cuz they need answers
i cant solve something or stop somethings but i try anyway
i feel like the dark super girl
the one who everyone wants help from
cuz they know that even if its not possable i will still try
i wonder if i will ever get to be plain me
instead of being stuck inside a medaforical superhero body
every day i wonder whats battle i will have to fight next
and how long it will go for
i feel like im the dark super girl the one who never rests
and the one who craves a solution to every problem and no matter how big, small, possable or impossable it is will try

Teen Remembrances(one I did 4 a class)

Teen remembrances are a drag
When you're living within too many masks
Covering up what everyone wants you to cover up

You always remember living
Three different lives
Three different people living inside
You just wanting to be one

With such low expectations
One has to set high goals in life
To know ones self by
No one understands that I just want to cry sometimes
Tears do fall from these eyes
I just hide them away in the hole
That I slowly drowned in without laughing from day to day

The smile that I put on my face every day
Fools everyone I meet and the ones that I don’t
It even fools me from time to time
Thinking I really might be happy but I’m not
I’m not happy here and that is why I have to leave
To run and hide within my many masks

Follow The Light

nobody really knows where they're supposed to go
hiding behind a wall
afraid that they'll lose it all
but it's alright
just follow the light
and don't be afraid of the dark
in the moonlight you'll dance til you fall
and always be here in my heart
but nobody wants to know
cos nobody even cares
everyone's on the make
yeah and everyone's out for themselves
me i'm on the longest road
where everything's overload
but i've got my heart and soul
so don't throw me overboard
cos it's alright
just follow the light
and don't be afraid of the dark
in the moonlight
you'll dance til you fall and always be here in my heart
cos it's alright
just follow the light
and don't be afraid of the dark
in the moonlight
you'll dance til you fall
and always be here in my heart
cos it's alright alright now
and you're alright
yeah we're alright now

War Dance

Theres an epidemic
Stirring passions in young hearts
Even the old campaigners
Have got it really bad
Well we aint seen nothing like it
Since coronation day
But when the street parties sound
Im going underground
To keep the rabid hounds at bay
Oh my my -- this war dance
A patriotic romance
No we aint seen nothing like it
Since coronation day
But when the tickatape flies
And blood is on the rise
You know its got you in its sway
You got yourself a war dance
Theres a cheap sensation
Keeping fleet street wide awake
Everyone wants a slice of
The jingoistic cake
And theyre resurrecting churchill
And bringing national service back
Fueling power and glory fever
Makes for a sicker union jack
Yes Im talking about this war dance
A patriotic romance
And I know all you poets
Have seen it all before
About the stirring of those young hearts
Back in the first world war
Oh my my this war dance...

Creating Illusions To Delude

Only during the Olympic Games,
Are billions of people the world over...
Given a vision of unity.
To witness the reality of true atheletes.
Those who are at their greatest mental,
And physical peaks.
While those of lesser performance skills,
Choose to isolate themselves,
Within images of divisions with a practicing done...
Of effective hatred,
Seem to be the ones...
Marketing to impose their darkest fears,
Promoting threats of all losing their interests...
To those on the prowl with wishes of conquests,
To end those peaceful nights with endless conflict.
After...
Ceremonies to celebrate humanity...
Returns to business as usual.

However...
None of that nonsense is tolerated,
Or even mentioned...
During special events such as the Olympics.
National holidays,
Or...
During the Oscar ceremonies,
When everyone wants to know...
Who has been chosen the best,
In creating illusions to delude.

Hunting

'Where 'she said
'does love live? '

Is it in your eyes?
I have looked there;

I look there every day.

Is it in your heart?

I know it beats
but some days
it is so faint;

In your mind?

That is opaque.

Tell me where does your love for me live?

I said
'I am taught
that deeds and providing
are where my love shows;

in being sure everyone here is safe
and that there is enough
for what everyone wants or needs.

I am not good at flowery words;
at affection even.

I wish I were better.
for you.
What about you?

Where does your love for me live? '

She said
'It is everywhere with me
in my heart, it pounds you know still
for you.
In the house.
I place my love in flower vases
in the vacuum cleaner;
in dinner
in the wine served.
In my thoughts and emotions.

I remember everything
we've ever done.

He said:
I wish I had that ability you have.

I think I am made for the hunt.

But now
there is no hunt.
