Song#: 13

Album
Name of Song: Leaders of people

Leaders of people
Who care not our plight.
But we still do grant them
this right to show might.

Gradual acceptance,
Through lifetimes of woe,
And what do we say,
Usually, “that so and so.

We are too used to
accepting a truth,
From leaders who act like,
And seem like a Sooth.

Money buys leaders,
And has done for years,
But who is behind them,
As we close off our ears.

Lifetimes of living
While denying ourself,
Has left us regretting
That ancient farewell.

Chorus
Easy to say,
Horrible to face,
So much between
That ancient mistake.
Easy to say,
Horrible to face,
So much between
That ancient mistake.
______

Don’t be upset
At what I am saying,
Come up to now
and get used to dismaying.

Evil is here,
And has been a while,
Don’t give it much more
Than a glance or a smile.

Focus on self,
And those who are kind,
They are the ones
who will keep you unblind.

Chorus
Easy to say,
Horrible to face,
So much between
Our ancient mistake.
Easy to say,
Horrible to face,
So much between
Our ancient mistake.
