Society is in the Trash

I read the news today
The tears read my face
It’s just history repeating itself
People still hurting each other

Our society has been taken ill
Humanity is not so humane

I read the news today
and I wept for a pregnant mother of 1
My heart broke for her unborn child
Not yet born; already a victim of our violence

Our society never really cared
Humanity has never been humane

I read the news today
My tears still read my face…

Reiteration, echo, repeat…

Leave me on repeat
Don’t press shuffle
Don’t press stop
I am here to repeat myself for YOU

This is not a limited offer
And even if it was it would not apply to you
You are that special group of people
You help me appreciate my own voice

Leave me on repeat
I’ll say it again
Leave me on repeat
I’ll say it again

Loveless Possession

Loveless possession
A trophy for your life
Parade her through town
Dress her up, dress her down

Buy her bigger tits
Fill her lips with shit
Make her as you want her
Shape her, break her; use her

Loveless possession
Free money for your strife
You’ll walk right through town
As long as he lays the money down

Build him a bigger ego
Fill his pants with your lap
Make him as you want him
Shape him, break him; use him

Loveless bits and pieces
Toys of the rich and famous
Negation of love-kind
Toys that make us blind
