they are the voices that go unheard all over the world

it takes more than time to say you changed it takes more than work

we cannot shed our stripes nor can we wash away our sins 

do not touch but you can look how far is going too far

all the fantasies that swim in your brain are the ones that drive you insane

you read porno magazines and pay for lap dances

make love to your wife thinking about the girl last night

you hide behing a facade of lies and deceit having everyone fooled

in your own quiet time you dress up in womens clothes and pose in the mirror

you jerk off to release your tension and recover

alone time is when you pretend your big daddy

tie a cloth around your hands and smack yourself silly 

no one knows you have this way of life so you buy a hooker and cheat on your wife

with her you can be the freak that you are with her you can be free

you run a business all day and are in charge of many people

inside your feelings run rampant

you have urges you cannot control that cause you to ignite the flame

its only when your with your wife that you really feel ashamed

the problem with the folks today is no one can be themselves

so they disguise who they are and lie to the world

then when they get caught they blame it on everyone else

this is the taboo that noone wants to talk about but its happening everywhere

men dress like woman women act like men hookers are getting rich off our dirty sins

dont be ashamed of who you are because its how we're made

what destroys us in the end is everyone finding out instead of telling them

    Strong words Brandy, but society summed up completely. Thankfully we all don't live this way, many of us do follow the rights paths, lots of truth in the above tho>James

    Taboo behavior is called that for a reason "in my mind" (x) behavior causes harm in the larger society. The hurt provoking behavior is often copied or repeated so that those who have been hurt don't feel so alone in their pain. Many taboo's have their basises in a religious interpetation of the value of and reason for sex. Demonizing women also plays a role in taboos. It would be wonderful if we all could just enjoy our bodies without guilt. Light & Love
