The light shines through clouds of illusion
As little boys kill themselves trying to grow
Little girls laugh as little boys act like men
And women chuckle when grown men act like little boys
Self righteousness people acting as if they are better than us
They're no good to anybody
But fools will follow anything
As long as it's loud
and gives them something to believe
On television, the all American family
has had another good day
A woman cannot see her beauty
seeing man as something sinful
A man feels cheated
A woman holds out for love
and is raped
if a child is allowed to be born
it will be beaten and put in its place
by some miracle this child will grow up
As an adult
Will this child find love, or bondage
Where does it lead?
When does it end?
Why is this happening?
