Revolutionary Heart 2004

 

My body’s very weary
but not as weary as my soul,
looking upon so many people
and seeing what’s reflected there-
the inhumanity resting
in too much kindness taken for granted;
the tolerance of moral crimes
that subconsciously we know
doesn’t make any sense.
The radical hypocrisy of conservatives:
okay to see a woman degraded and hit
but can’t show a pierced tit;
the irony that we are at war
with those not directly responsible
for disruption of our peace,
and the insanity that we want
justice for all
but two people of the same sex
shouldn’t marry at all-
seems we haven’t really evolved at all!
We got an overgrown boy in power,
jumping to use his brand new toys,
drunk and contradictory in what he says;
that’s why he gets no respect at all,
and I guess in a way, we deserve it!

Seems B.S. and the U.S. are becoming a perfect fit …

And my soul’s tired of seeing this out of control
and this is why I feel so emotionally old,
and is it really safe to bring children into
a place in such a sorry state
where love is only reserved for some
where there’s such a high tolerance for hate?

I cringe at this country’s fate.

But as long as I’m alive
with every breath that I take,
I will continue to fight,
so people will have the right
To be
To live
To know
To love.
