    Boldly taken
    blind eye don't see
    in the river of deception
    how can it be
    killing the life
    between da divided we
    slow death claims
    in my community

    Snakes rattles cross da field
    spreading it's vipers for da thrill
    poison soil , confusion cry
    unexplainable illusions who knows why
    bodies fall ova da edge
    from the corruption one now bed
    feeling a sense of silence
    shattered terror of slaved minds
    desperately not da tyme

    Dangerously pits of hope and healing
    cut like da sword hearts disappearing
    da garden fades like dark of night
    no advantage into morrow's light
    twisted love clash in worrior fight
    killing the growth, thy seeds of height
    from the poisonest strike
    slow death now to claim
    less somehow the soul will tame
    and stop this badge displeasured shame

    Weeds now tall as maple trees
    taken the land under deep freeze
    like da winter cold spirits of ice
    covering the garden of secrecy life
    becoming da battle grounds
    by the blissing blood hounds
    of misty myth and betrayed preception
    leaving it all in "what if" deep caution
    tween the space of truth & lie confession
    searching for the compassion

    Only a few good crops left
    da snakes in rumors around about
    listen to the cries , da screams & shouts
    as they gain and claim wit clout
    the garden fruitful tree
    nothing rising , theirs no blossome feast
    just da vipers of populationalized villains
    visualizing what has taken form.
