Treasure Island

The Change


If All The Pieces Are Gathered
And Put Together To Fit
The Puzzle Of Life That Remains
Is Dark And Cannot Be Lit
For Time Is Spent On Searching
The Things We Cannot Find
Time Is Lost And Then Forgotten
In The Labyrinth Of Our Mind
Curious In Our Nature
We Set Out To Explore
We Wonder How Things Happen
Always Wanting To
Yeah Always Wanting To Know More

No Stone On Earth Escapes
The Clutches Of Mans Greed
Earth, Where He Lives And Rapes
Is Devoured At Lightning Speed
Progress They Call It
Breeds Destruction And Confusion
Our Orbs Need Redirecting
To Enable Us Salvation
For We Have Wealth And Power
That Turn Us Into Robots
We Must Respect And Uphold
The Unjust Laws That Govern Us
Yet At Times They Are Waived
To Suit Those Who Are Evil
Corrupt, Influential And Capable
Of Controlling Our Worthless Lives

We Are Still Just Little Fish
In The Sea Of Damnation
Brought Into Without Choice
Of Another Civilization
That Never Hears
Yeah That Never Heard Our True Voice
Some Day The Change Might Come
But Until Then Pretend
That None Of It Exists
Yeah This I'm Sorry, To Say My Friends
Only To Find No End...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
