Melancholy times

13 July 2011 8:50 pm

Melancholy times are these
Sex and drugs and so called reality tv

Teaching children what young adults should know
Then watching them die and putting them on a show

Pervert them while they are little and young
Then keep them under the camera gun

Show them sex and give them drugs
Put them in rehab and sweep them under the rug

I love tv its not that bad
Even though they show a daughter being raped by dad

We can't beat them so might as well join them
Enjoy the poison and fall beside them

Music is my life you say
But your music preaches death and decay

It isn't that bad our parents used to say
Now look how not that bad has turned out today


You are blind and deaf and going the wrong way
Stop drinking that poison and throw it all away

But alas my family and I are poisoned too
We are not aligned the way we are supposed to

I am awake but they are not
It puts me in a terrible spot

I have to stand and stand I will
And throw out this poison so my family will heal
