Hellbent on not becoming hellbound

They speak boldly of bravery But yet cowardly hide from reality Falsely believing courage to be found in artillery, and respect in a casualty I hope they never have to watch life untimely leave When someone they think fondly of can no longer breath They talk errantly since their life is at ease In another part of town a mother weeps on her knees But now this new recession Has demographics intersectin They on wall street concealing weapons Even buddhists had to toughen And I just want to be sky bound When the clouds come unbound And the instruments sound Dont wanna be hellbound
