Stone Idols and Crimson Angels

         Stone Idols and Crimson Angels cannot give us what we need
             Instead, create confusion, delirium… living on the edge
        Luring temptations, no explanations, give way to condemnation
         The “fog” never lifting, while searching for that “perfect seed”
                  Trust not, Stone Idols and Crimson Angels,
        You keep us needing, thru emotional bleeding, shame and sorrow
           Feeling nothing, as an empty suit, we search for elusive joy
            Idols and Angels consume our minds, living for tomorrow
         These Idols and Angels , take us into the rear view mirror
                         To view and relive an imperfect past
                Wanting us to change the past, not learn from it
                   Which would give us perfect joy…at last
                  Make it mandatory, take each day, our inventory
            When our future comes calling, plan for dreams come true
                     Build our foundations, fulfill obligations
               Our elusive dreams in hand…no need to still pursue

          Stone Idols and Crimson Angels beckon each new day,
                         Temptations lead to defeat
          I choose, instead, to take the leap…the leap of faith…
                Letting go, real angel wings, now at my feet!
