written after watching the ads on afternoon tv



I was toasting the devil and all his sons
doing nothing with everyone
I was living at the cost of your loved one
selling them lies in the midday sun

I've always seen the darkside
stole everyones light for my pride
denied the suffreing and the genocide
just to have the lion and lamb lay by my side

I take from the mouths of a billion starving children
sell them philosophies of freedom and original sin
give them debt and worry at a knock down bargain
bleed their brains,tell them to take it on the chin

I've always seen the darkside
stole everyones light for my pride
denied the suffreing and the genocide
just to have the lion and lamb lay by my side

I support the war on poverty aslong as you buy my wears
give me your souls so I can gamble them in shares
buy my writings on how to become millionaires
let me take control of your life and affairs

I've always seen the darkside
stole everyones light for my pride
denied the suffreing and the genocide
just to have the lion and lamb lay by my side

I'll tell you of a better time a time that you've never had
you just sell me your children so they wont be sad
afterall they tell you that you're nothing but raving mad
give me your mind I'll make you forget that you're bad

I've always seen the darkside
stole everyones light for my pride
denied the suffreing and the genocide
just to have the lion and lamb lay by my side

God bless you Rodel. I understand the pain you go through for the suffering in the world. It's almost too much to take at times.

I think these opening lines:

"I was toasting the devil and all his sons
doing nothing with everyone"


are excellent and very strong.

Romany.
