Song#: 14

Album
Name of Song: Images of violence

Images of violence,
Ensconced within my mind,
My cells remember all that force
and make me less sublime.

Urges to get even,
They never really leave,
I hope I have forgot them, but
So snide they gently grieve.

Memories of violence,
They never go away,
Unless you face them dead straight on,
And help them have their say.

Chorus
Violence can last forever,
Your cells remember all,
And you recall the whole damn lot,
Because you feel the call.
Protecting and defending,
Not always goes your way,
All I’m saying is cells recall
and quietly change your way.

Images of violence,
Ensconced within my mind,
My cells remember all that force
and make me less sublime.

Urges to get even,
They never really leave,
I hope I have forgot them, but
So snide they gently grieve.

Memories of violence,
They never go away,
Unless you face them dead straight on,
And help them have their say.

Chorus
Violence can last forever,
Your cells remember all,
And you recall the whole damn lot,
Because you feel the call.
Protecting and defending,
Not always goes your way,
All I’m saying is cells recall
and quietly change your way.
______

Listening to your cells recount
just what they feel occurred,
Too simple a solution for
The violence of this world.

So life goes on despite this,
Somehow we survive,
But nuclear war and riots lurk
To take us from our life.

Start a revolution,
Of kindness instead of hate,
Listen to what is being said
Help clean each other’s slate.

Chorus
Violence can last forever,
Your cells remember all,
And you recall the whole damn lot,
Because you feel the call.
Protecting and defending,
Not always goes your way,
All I’m saying is cells recall
and quietly change your way.

Bridge
We’re on the bridge to nowhere,
Just open wide your eyes,
Feel the slippery road we’re on
and all those silly lies.

Images of violence,
Ensconced within my mind,
My cells remember all that force
and make me less sublime.

Urges to get even,
They never really leave,
I hope I have forgot them, but
So snide they gently grieve.

Memories of violence,
They never go away,
Unless you face them dead straight on,
And help them have their say.

Chorus
Violence can last forever,
Your cells remember all,
And you recall the whole damn lot,
Because you feel the call.
Protecting and defending,
Not always goes your way,
All I’m saying is cells recall
and quietly change your way.
