Credit Crunch


looking for the penny making it last long
this is the reality of today people loosing
their hard earned money quick to be dropped
like a monkey
credit crunch squeezing it hard now that we
have our backs against the wall ready to be
eased into the corner and ready to be eaten alive
this is the reality of today

together we shall make it with or without the dollars
only our calls can break it from this cycle
now that we are getting rejected from every job
cos every one is fighting for every line to get that
pounds before you and we are loosing that respect
and fighting for every step we take it seems that
there is nothing to do except dispair and we gota
tighten our belts and its time to put all our cards on
the table now they think we wont get ours.
this is the reality of today

time to wake up and fight for the future of our children
while we give them no hope and heap them with fears
of tomorrow debts climbing people loosing hope and
loosing it on the road banks taking our every blood
and sweat while we sit and ponder about the present
and the future and where to get the next pay day
while pigs get fatter and let them eat ours.
this is today's future.

Black Light

life is at times bleak the black that covers
us to a beyond dreams.
at times we seek and gain the black wool
of the sheep as the light of today looms far

Lost Confused

Lost confused and time
Change, one thing all man fears,
so we look upon and ask why.
Seeing the leaves fall off.

Moments And Movements

life is but moment take it serious you loose
that motion why wait for seriousness when
you get on with life and be innocent check
not what you see but what you belief hear


I was told that I would never be far
and told I shouldn’t aspire to be the
star so I stood hard and didn’t
become the internal fool,

Who Am I

Whips firing slashing through the air
heat rise hitting the speed of sound.
Slow mo speaking and talking like
you on the screen

Clickin And Clocking

time ticking click clock kicking slow moving
today is another day people looking through
the false intent of wondering what you are
i am here walking the pits of the world
