Dumbed and numbed

The TV images leave us dumbed and numbed
Air gone in magnetic storms from the sun
The end is closer coming on the run
Psychotic killers with multiple guns

The epidemic of children killing children has begun
Mimicking the adults making loners weíve shunned
Once again in a church holiness of life is again ruined
The giant hurricane is still foaminí boiliní n churniní

The Russians are dying in their sleep their beds have become bombs
The Tamorians removing heads and limbs in a mad macheteís mob
Killing continues evil disguised as holy impulses from their God
Human against human living what our seeds have wrought

How can we trust justice when the liars are the law
Maniacs screamin in the street yet no-one really saw
That it was for a quiet peace for which they fought
The people marching for the freedom of their lives and thoughts

Reality cannot last on a foundation of false lines
It must be truthful to be useful with no lies
How else can we stop our childrenís comfortless cries
A spiritís will to live found at the lips of love and life

All life drowning in the horrific millennial floods
Breeding ground for mosquitoes that kill sucking your blood
And the dead in their caskets have risen through the mud
From the alleys to the jungle trails its boys n men wild in the hood

From Turkey to Italy, California and Taiwan the Earth is shaking all around
Towers and huts crushing people and life and tearing up the ground
The fires of the Earthís hot tears bubbling way deep and down
The hot river of tears flows with a volcanic crackling sound

You were once asked if you believed
You were on destructionís eve
How many parents for their children grieve
How many more until you truly see
Living lies cannot make reality be
The truth of every heartbeat is holy

The TV images leave us dumbed and numbed
Air gone in magnetic storms from the sun
The end is closer coming on the run
Psychotic killers with multiple guns

Just one more tale of millennial and epic woe
Lost electrons on the river of moments floes
For deep down in all minds is nothing but holes
Life n thought is the spirit energy across the gaps it flows

Cosmic whispers can come to calm and quiet minds
But in anger and rage the inner eye becomes blind
It is only humans that are killing human kind
Look around can you doubt the ends of time

From the couch we watch all the bombs and bodies fall
Every country has its own bloody and holy wailing wall
The children kill children blood and prayer in the school halls
Human killing human from a madness deep in us all

Stars comets and mile wide rocks falling through the skies
The oceans are tears from the stars asking us all why
Humans plants animals even the air beginning to die
Intelligence and compassion cannot be found in the dark lies

You must open your mind and soul to the beat of your heart
It is the only way for the healing truth to really start
To bring together what was once torn asunder and ripped apart
To return humanity to the fullness of the cosmic hearth

Only in love can we truly find the truths of our lives
We were not born to just survive and just to merely die
To go far and explore to live life with harmonyís smile
Lies and greed have turned it all into a meaningless drive

You were on destructionís eve
How many parents for their children grieve
How many more until you truly see
Living lies cannot make reality be
The truth of every heartbeat is holy

The TV images leave us dumbed and numbed
Air gone in magnetic storms from the sun
The end is closer coming on the run
Psychotic killers with multiple guns

Iím still a dreamer a walking reflection of my Universe
In my river of moments I am swirled wherever I can serve
In your deepest terror Creation can energize your nerves
With every heartbeat knowing that life goes on beyond the hearse

In every moment you already have all that God knows you need
But Creation made all life wanting more itís the beginning of greed
And the evil comes from the makings of our own seeds
A piercing anguish to our souls when in our arms our children bleed

Our history as shifting as the dusty dunes of the face on Mars
When our atoms come from the very hearts of heavenís stars
Behind the eyes in the mirror you remain who you really are
Whether by chance or clone thereís a soul already traveled far

You are the essence of electronic impulses across the holes of your mind
All life is energy and matter connecting to grow and to survive
From a single cell dividing continuing to grow into all of humankind
A way for the Universe to experience, understand and to shine

Every energetic pulse of life is a precious gift from Creationís seed
From moment to moment the truth is found in the calm in-between
The center is the equilibrium from the most wild extremes
The heart of your soul is where is the Universe is clearly seen

The TV images leave us dumbed and numbed
Air gone in magnetic storms from the sun
The end is closer coming on the run
Psychotic killers with multiple guns

You were on destructionís eve
How many parents for their children grieve
How many more until you truly see
Living lies cannot make reality be
The truth of every heartbeat is holy
