    OOH EYES, SHOW ME THE TRUTH

    Paint and beauty i desire;
    'Cause a man in gold i admire;
    I've been searching all my life;
    But away my ambitions fly;

    He coats in golden suits 'n silver plates;
    Yeah,the one i've been waiting to date;
    Rarely do i know the heart is a farm of thorns;
    where pain and misery are borne;

    And darkness flow like a river;
    Yes,the drums 'n bells of hell ring 'n linger;
    Yet,the ware house of lies and deception;
    OOh,the foundation of my ruin 'n distruction;

    But O eyes teach me to see truth 'n reality;
    That i should judge not by gold or money;
    But by the truth and nature of love;
    which knows not the bounds of dusk or dawn;

    And knows not the lords creature by color;
    Neither does it know light or darkness;
    But an ocean of love, peace 'n happiness;
    Which forever inhabits the depths of my bossom;

    OOh eyes,what you see is disillusion;
    And you will lead me to distruction;
    Only teach me to judge not by sight or garments;
    But by the truth in the hearts and minds of men.;

    "For the ways that seemeth right onto a man;
    the end thereof are ways of distruction".
    (proverbs 14:12).
