Favorite Verses

"Fools" said I "you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But still my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the walls of silence


Cinderella, she seems so easy
"It takes one to know one", she smiles
And puts her hands in her back pocket
Bette Davis style
In comes Romeo, he's moaning
"You belong to me, I believe"
But someone says, "your in the wrong place, my friend"
You'd better leave
And the only sound that's left
After the Ambulances go
Is Cinderella sweeping up
On Desolation Row


And if you listen very hard
The truth will come to you at last
When all is one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll


A child was born, with no state of mind
Blind to the ways of mankind
God is smiling on you but hes frowning too
Cause only God knows what you go through
You grow in the ghetto, living second rate
And your eyes will sing a song of deep hate
The places you play and where you stay
Looks like one great big alley way
You'll admire all the number book takers
Thugs, pimps, pushers and the big money makers
Driving big cars, spending twenties and tens
And you wanna grow up to be just like them
Smugglers, scrambles, burglars, gamblers
Pickpockets, peddlers and even pan-handlers
You say I'm cool, I'm no fool
But then you wind up dropping out of high school
Now you're unemployed, all null n void
Walking around like you're pretty boy floyd
Turned stickup kid, look what you done did
Got send up for a eight year bid
Now your man is took and you're a may tag
Spend the next two years as an undercover ***
Being used and abused, and served like hell
Till one day you was find hung dead in a cell
It was plain to see that your life was lost
You was cold and your body swung back and forth
But now your eyes sing the sad sad song
Of how you lived so fast and died so young


these are some of them, more to come
