Men Of Our Time

</>These men of our time
Are they the same with the past?
Blazing of fire
Of sinful desire.
Are they really of blood
As our ancestors
Whom we so much thought
Of better things?

Loveless men of our time
Roseless are their gardens
In their shapeless heart,
Sodom and Gomorrah lives again
Lies of lies burning
Lie about lie, Beware!

These dogs of our time
Dragons that speak
Unleashed beast in flesh
Wolves in flesh
Of unbound thirst
Unquenchable fire
Baskets!
Empty and shallow
Think with their manhood

I used to know that
Kisses and hugs are of love
Cuddle and care. And care
I used to know that
Those men loved, cared
And even died for it
I was told that
They brought river to the desert
In a very special way

These men of our time
Descendants of wolves
