I declare war
On the battlefield
Of your higher mind
Why doth this generation
Seek after a sign?
For verily, verily
No sign shall be given unto you
Seek first the Kingdom of the Most High,
Most High, Most High
All things shall be added unto you
What is this I see before me?
Is it a long and winding road?
Or is the closedness of my heart
Casting a fog across the way?
Everyone knows that
Fairytales are just words on pages
In books for kids
But in this world
There are demons and dragons
And trolls hide under bridges
And I don’t wish to tarry here anymore
No I don’t wish to tarry here anymore
In this world
Where news is big business
Corporations control the media
And the media distracts the people
From the perilous abuse
Of our planet’s remaining resources
They are eluding us with illusion
The minds of the people been confused
They are confusing us with confusion
Psychological warfare used and abused
We’ve had enough players
We’ve had enough of those who pretend to defend us
We’ve had enough liars
We’ve had enough of those who really defend themselves
