If I am unclean, why do you then tarnish these hills with my blood?

Look well upon this dark face, for it's not the last you will see...

I don't really know if I'm amazed
Or is this really the way it's to be
We're behaving worse than ever before
Since we came down from the trees

For mayhem seems to abound
Maybe it's time to stay indoors

And yes, I have sons.

They'll ignore that,
and see color, and size.
They'll look at...Read More
