Edward Kofi Louis (13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)
With the ways of hatred and war;
Of the tensions in the country among the two parties;
But, in a Football match, there is always a Referee in the game.
With more pulls leading to sin;
But, the truth about life is that,
If you dwell in the secret of the Most High,
You will abide under the Shadow of the Almighty.
To rule by force like a dictator;
With rape and murder under the carpets,
Because, you've chosen the ways of Satan.
We've been taught to sin;
In many ways.
To cover it up;
That's why our steps lead to sin.
Exacerbate, bate, beat, tear, ear, era, eat, ate, exact, act, art, cart!
In the midst of the ways of the people in this land;
With the muse of illegal lust.
Midway, way, wind, mind, dam, may!
To Satan's clutches.
Exacerbate, bat, cat, rat, bare, bear, beer, tea, tree, create, rate, tar!
But, you've given in to the clutches of Satan.
