The Power of Song


An act of violence and a lack of love
React in silence for fact of what
The facts are wrong along the tracks of dawn
A train of pain across the loss of calm
But the bond is strong through the cracks of song
The melody is a weapon and the people are armed
A remedy to counter the extremities on
Racism and hate that the enemy is drawn
To in order to power themselves like a bomb
Or a bulb, or diffused, the enemy is confused
But the people refuse, their voice is infused
With the rhythms of life and the prisms of light
Different shapes in the minds that the songs can entice
So suffer in pain and let the enemy gain
Control of the soul and the body of brawn
Or keep strong and fly away into the heavens of song
