spoken word political about society

Blessed before you are damned

So before this flow is begun
Everyone all you daughters and sons
If you need to run
Run now
Cos when I start I won't be letting you out only so many words to be telling you now
Letting you know what its all about
So where to begin
The ice is melting, gettin thin
Needles all over breakin skin
This world is steeped in sin
And the noisy din of politicians
Streaks through the air
This could be anywhere but its here
See they don't care about you
And that's the truth
Your of no use
If your to young to vote
You've got no hope
This islands like a prison boat

See you get what you give
What come out went in
And if you want to properly live
Don't treat life like a bin
Throwing in all your crap
Your rage and despair and that
And despising what you produce
Cos its your mess, your labours fruits

The teachers are sarcastic
The only education they give is caustic
Of xourse There's exceptions to every rule
But at least one teacher you know is a tool
And that's cool because if life was all gravy
Wed get nothing finished
Wed laze about squeamish
Of leaving a world with no danger
But this world is dangerous
And its oozing pus
This world is not just
The innocent are rarely convicted
But I don't think your educated enough
See a man can lose a billion pounds
When the moneys owners aren't around
And he has no law save him
He has nothing to account for his actions
Its a distraction that they will clean up the bankers
The rots to deep we can't get rid of the wankers
Now this aint my issue
What I'm saying to you is why is he not arrested
When a man the same age is prosecuted for having a toke
This is a joke
I'm not saying legalise
I'm just asking is it wise
To put some things above the law
And this is raw emotion I'm giving
Cos I'm living for every day
I'm chilling most days
And true say I don't see what's up with that
I'm not attacking beating peeps up with a baseball bat
I'm not taking it fast
Because at last
I've decided to find my own path
And ill carve out a new road
For every load of people that come after
And ill paint the road with sunshine and laughter and if joy is what your after your welcome on my path
And now at last
I'm back to the refrain again
And yes I'm afraid its the same again

See you get what you give
What come out went in
And if you want to properly live
Don't treat life like a bin
Throwing in all your crap
Your rage and despair and that
And despising what you produce
Cos its your mess, your labours fruits

stifling individuality
stopping you being free
Morality has actually
Become convoluted
Sunject to appropriate fee
Don't look at me
I'm just opening your eyes
So wide you could see anything
Don't cry though
I'm expanding your mind
Like icarus I'm letting you fly
So high in this big blue sky
But those who would shoot you down
And drown you
Men in monkey suits frowning around
Cos your a clown breakin the mold
They aren't ready to behold you
Your golden a brand person
And you've got a thirst on
For being the first one
To do something amazing
Like trying to live by singing
But the thing is
You need to save yourself
Look after your own health
Don't rely on anyone else
So here's a thought
Although you probably herd it before
You can't be caught unless you do wrong
You can't sing without a song
But a little taste of freedom in your heart
And your creatin art
Whether through words or worlds
Through pictures or photos
Sounds or magic
You have to have it
but its easy to find
You can see it despite being blind
And no one minds
If you take your time to find it
Becuase what it is is different for all of us
But don't make a fuss
Stay quietly competent or in a word modest
Tell the truth most of the time, be honest
Then look back through the mist
Of where you've been
Look back on what you've seen
What you did and are doing
What you ate and what your chewing
And whether your mad or happy or sad
And if you feel content
Honest, quietly confedent
Then that's enough
The rest is just fluffly edging
If you ever get that far then ring me
Laugh down the phone and say

I'm finally free

See you get what you give
What come out went in
And if you want to properly live
Don't treat life like a bin
Throwing in all your crap
Your rage and despair and that
And despising what you produce
Cos its your mess, your labours fruits

Your are so young
Sunshine so come on
Be somebody be a someone
You have so much possibility
To nake a change happen
Your not insignificant you do matter
Life is a platter for you
And you have so much you can choose
Don't waste your choice
And you do have a voice
You can make a difference
Yeah finding a job is hard
But your holding the best cards
And your life will pass so fast
If you don't sieze the chance
Then you won't ever advance
You will be stuck
In that same rut
Until it all ends
And begins again
So go for it now
Take what you want however
Because you'll never get another go
Grab it in both hands, don't let go
Throw away your fear
Listen don't just hear
And become as good as you can
Become a better woman or man
And overtake the generation
Ignore their sarcasm and indignation
Keep marching on regardless
Because this is all about the heart

See you get what you give
What come out went in
And if you want to properly live
Don't treat life like a bin
Throwing in all your crap
Your rage and despair and that
And despising what you produce
Cos its your mess, your labours fruits

You are so young sunshine
Please dream hard become a sunbeam
Become so greate you illuminate
Them all and when you fall
You fall softly see you are the key
To the future man
and your blessed before your dammed.
