Free-men

Free-men die as rich-men thrive,
the earth keeps spinning by and by.
That’s the way our stories go,
there’s nothing left that we’ve not told.

Sweetness sours and wise men prevaricate.
Openness hides because magic can demonstrate.
Can you decipher what they want you to trust in?
The media rules over those who are reluctant.

Hide all of your smile
(Do you want to believe)
Look, want, seize
(You have the mind of a child)
Don’t follow the crowd
(Do you do what you’re told)
You’ve gotta be bold
(Listen to the background)

Be the one you want from me
(Be)
Freedom sweeps the netherworlds
(Free)
For once look through, they’re in disguise
(For)
Mediocrity is the new failure
(Me)

Free-men die as rich-men thrive,
the earth keeps spinning by and by.
That’s the way our stories go,
there’s nothing left that we’ve not told.

    I really like this, the tune that I put it to in my mind made it sound really cool, like a song with a rap in it too. I love it!

    Nicely written. When reading it, I also had two voices singing/rapping in my head at the same time. Great lyrics.
