That Savage Beast, Mankind

History

Mystery

Fee fi fo fum

The illusions

The delusions

The jifity jam, man

This life

This kite

It’s in the wind

The mind

The man

The person within

The games we play

Just to pretend

The end

The end

The end within

The sin

The sin

From the man within

The visions

The missions

We dream so sweetly

The life doesn’t lay so neatly

It’s hard to predict

The plans, man

They hardly ever go as planned, man

It's a maze

It’s a zoo

It’s me

It’s you

This wind

It’s within

Mixed in

With the sin

And the shadow

That man within

You do not know

What you don’t know

So many ways

This wave could go

The soul is in the soil

And as the blood boils

And the snake is uncoiled

The fool is fooled

And the man is a tool

The big hand ticks

The present moment

Becomes history

Mystery

The propaganda

The lies

The eyes

Who knows the truth

Surely not you

Surely not I

We are just alive

Thrown into time

Turned it into a line

In our minds

To make sense

Of the kings and queens of crime

That savage beast,

mankind.

I keep looking to the opening door, hoping to see you walk in. It’d be a miracle if you did. Its an impulse- an instinct. Something rooted in my subconscious. A parasite that lives rent free in there.

A civil war in Canada? I thought they were the kind ones, with good healthcare? A civil war in America? Maybe a devorce would be better… Something has to change, A war in Ukraine?? Against Russia?? Oy

The feeling of skin on your skin The hot breath from a woman on your neck, as she sleeps in your arms. The soft and gentle lips on yours The moment in a fight when you want to quit, but you keep fight
