Vision

Poem By Joel Smith

In a dream
I saw all of existence on an altar
being sacrificed by big egos
and those who lust for power

On my knees
I saw all human suffering
being fed by the greedy
and the patriotic

With all my soul
I begged for change
but i was left speechless
by the ignorance of the masses

With my eyes closed
I wished for a world
without countries or races

On my back
I was humbled by reality
what can one person do
in this universe at this moment

Existence

Do what your told
respect your elders
be seen an not heard
say and do whatever you like

Clarity

On the day before the rivals
took the court an pushed their vitals
i was alone
i was home

Excuse my empty head
I awoke in eighty-one and found myself dead
I'm gonna talk
I'm gonna play

Requiem

I know myself
I know my sin
whatever never happened

Temple

I arrived down at the scepter
where the tombs were on display
glass cases cant be broken

Ultimate

Lets all think positive and be decieved
optimism blinds the naive

I am beyond salvation
