First you have to learn

To rip out each others guts
To scratch out each others eyes
To swear to tell the truth
And then start right in with lies

No mercy is the rule
No compassion is the way
Live in fear of being a fool
And then insist on what you say

Not having to be a part of
Anything to do with being fair
What is the cost of a love
That will not endeavor to dare

To live up to any standard
To measure up to any bar
Except to ignore the simplicity

What we do is what we are

You've done more with less

You’ve made honest contributions
Let yourself decompress
You’ve gone against the odds
And you’ve done more with less

You’ve shined a light in the dark
Survived the winter winds
You’ve opened up new windows
And let the fresh air in

There are always oceans of emotions
Amidst the logic and the facts
But give yourself some credit
Take a breath and relax

Sit down on the front porch
And witness the green of spring
There is peace beauty and serenity
Uplifting on black and yellow wings

What everyone should do

Everyone should just start gossiping
And really get into being rude
Everyone should become undisciplined
And simply give into any mood

Nobody should check it out
Or make an effort to live in peace
Everybody should just abandon sanity
And let it die drop dead become deceased

Why bother caring anymore
It’s way too much trouble anyway
Just sit there numbly dumbly humming
And wait for the other person

To finish what they have to say


And then launch right into
What ever it is you’re thinking
Their opinion should be exactly like yours
And if it isn’t it’s obviously

Stupid rotten and stinking
