Name of Song: Our Basic Goodness

The goodness in all of us,
The love deep down inside,
The kindness that lives in everyone,
The understanding that never dies.

It’s been a long term goal to kill the spirit,
A reactive urge that’s only used by very few,
But they seem to always assume positions of some authority,
And in letting them so, our lives become askew.

These evil beings do seem to delight in other’s misery,
I’m sure you thought of one, as you read this haunting tale,
But funnily enough deep down they too are good and kind ones,
It’s just their memory of who they are is almost dead.

They do wreak havoc on the goodness of the many,
Just by our nature we tend to forgive and then forget,
But with these types you have to play a different strategy,
Or you will end up in the hole they’re climbing from.

Chorus
The goodness in all of us,
The love deep down inside,
The kindness that lives in everyone,
The understanding that never dies.

To protect our basic goodness and strong sincerity,
We must be kind and always assert our god-given rights,
For if we let these people make rules for us to live by,
We may find the focus for one another turning into hate.

The best defense against these anti-humans is,
Create your life as though they were never ever there,
Then when the strength of those around us comes together,
We then can move them to a place all by themselves.

Chorus
The goodness in all of us,
The love deep down inside,
The kindness that lives in everyone,
The understanding that never dies.

We are good and strong and powerful kindly beings,
We love to help and care for others in our lives,
The stable life support for our society is our sacred families,
And our individual goodness to do right.

Chorus
The goodness in all of us,
The love deep down inside,
The kindness that lives in everyone,
The understanding that never dies.
