Life can be relentlessly disappointing here and there happiness rolls in
but with a seductive glare dissapears
soothing the pain is relentless
as scars add up
noone fights for nothing
unless they have too much
I feel a tightness in my chest
a feeling I'm far too used to.
now and then I find a reason
but they stay bound under my dreams
a vicious circle and an endless trial
life can be relentlessly disappointing
the good days in fact, like mirage
when the lost don't find their hearts
a drink from an illusion
a toast to the dead and rejoice
life can be relentlessly satisfying.
After the scars heal
Before you judge take a look in the mirror,
It may seem dusty but it will get clearer.
Don't be fooled by idol adoration
sinister people still running our nations.
We are all human, whether boy or girl
we are all human, in all parts of the world.
Your skin-tone, your features just make you unique.
but equal we're born till evils extinct.
can I trouble you for a bite of bread
said the dark man with dirty dreads.
Of course you can the old man said with a warm sad smile
Haven't had company here in quite a while.
I've forgotten my name it's been so long.
can you sing this old soul a heartwarming song?
The man finished his meal and began to sing
Ahh his voice seemed such a wonderful thing.
He picked up his bag and started to leave,
until he saw the old man wipe a tear with his sleeve.
'you did not judge me and for that i am greatful
some people would rather a dog at their table.
For a life time of pain you saw love in my voice.
I don't know what that means but tonight I rejoice.
For the first time I feel like my life had a purpose.
But you didn't just see the looks on the surface.'
The old man just chuckled and said with a smile
"I may be old and no ones seen me for a while,
but I remember the times that seemed so meaningful
your kind song it paid the meal in full
If I can't do good for a man of this Earth.
Then what is the price of a soul really worth?"
