Got behind an old white man driving a beat up van On the wrong side of town Nothing but poor black folk around He pulled off to the side He put up a sign It said, "if you got a family to feed, take what you need"
He pulled out bin after bin of tomatoes and greens The people were cautious, but they were the happiest people I've seen He's not blinded by greed "I've got plenty, take what you need"
Take what you need He's planted a seed Like any old farmer would know You plant a seed You watch it grow We are...
I don't understand not taking the vaccine now. With 90 percent of the covid hospitalizations being nonvaxers and 95 percent of deaths from those same people. You'd think we were beyond the burden of proof.
The idea that taking a vaccine to keep you alive in some way interferes with your freedom is the most confusing thing I've ever heard. Last time I checked, you need to be alive to be free.
The people who won't wear a mask are the same people who won't take the vaccine. It's almost like they want to either die or kill off a loved one.
The last couple years my Father could no longer drive But I think he needed out in the mornings just to feel alive His sight had left him, he could no longer hear And I think he used the threat of driving just to keep me near
He would tell me tales of adventure while holding his coffee cup And yeah I knew he stretched the truth a bit and a few tales he made up He would tell me about the struggles of his life Talk about his successes and tell me about his strife
Every day Pop would drag me from my bed Still clearing the cobwebs from my...
I don't like lyrical poetry" "You write songs, not poetry"
I have a problem with writers today So well educated, with their ten dollar words Speaking only to each other And treating the simple man like he doesn't deserve... ...to understand And then... not understanding why they are not more popular
Joe Blow doesn't like poetry I wonder why?
Einstein once said, "If you can't explain it simply, then you don't understand it yourself" Tell me, do YOU understand?
I realized I didn't know the stranger looking back at me That mirror is a liar, that's plain to see. I hadn't been out in a year, since the divorce There was a period of mourning that had to run its course A friend trying to get me out there wanted to play pool I knew what he was doing, but I played the fool She waited on me, waif with red hair bringing me a rum and coke She kept coming back, a twinkle in her eye when she spoke I didn't know her, and she didn't know me Strangers in a bar, probably all we'd ever be She kept messing...
In a high-rise in New York city, looking out over Central Park Nursing a fifth of bourbon, staring out in the dark Spent a week in Paris, never been so lonely in all my days A month in London, and I missed the back home ways
Chorus:: Went out to see the world, and everywhere I'd roam Realized I was just a midwestern boy, wishing he could go home But things never stay how you remember them, everything changes with time People who never leave their home, never seem to mind
Home must've packed it's bags about the same time as me ...
We peek from the shadows and record all that we see Forbidden from interfering, we watch, and just let things be We are poets and writers, recluses and spies Who know the truth, and can see through the lies We are everywhere and we witness it all From the building of the pyramids to Rome's great fall We have existed since Adam and Eve from paradise were expelled And watched as the last of the Sahara's trees were felled We have scholars and scribes who record all in our great tome Kept in confines of the one place we call home In an...
It's like jumping out of a perfectly good plane Lived through the fall, so you wanta jump again It's like diving underwater and you know you can't swim The scenery is so beautiful you can't wait to dive right in
Chorus:: It's like heaven fell from the sky above Love is addictive You always want to be in love Love is passion Love makes you complete Love is a feast You can't wait to eat Tell me girl, are you in love?
It's like driving a car faster than you've driven before Once you felt the speed you crave for...
