    i have so much to say
    but no one will listen
    i have so much to say
    but no one will listen

    the streets have become the fertile ground of modern parentage
    young girls and little boys raised by a degenerated age
    a political system that is controlled by the dragon’s seven headed crowns
    nothing available for the down trodden so they smile with crooked frowns
    a person’s sexuality is said to be like unto the color of my skin
    the infidelity of this subjective truth burns my heart from within
    people sell their souls in an age that is constantly changing
    nothing is stable in this world everything is always rearranging
    the sins of the father are passing down to the sons and mother’s to their daughters
    the blind search to quench their thirst but they drink from contaminated waters
    the workforce is spending their money on things that can never satisfy
    the whore sits atop the seven hills and tells her harlots to pacify
    men are sleeping with the enemy and aborting their destiny’s
    questioning the origin of GOD not knowing their fulfilling prophecies

    i have so much to say
    but no one will listen
    i have so much to say
    but no one will listen

    little girls trained to be women and dress like harlots
    young boys trained to be murderers with hands as red as scarlet
    the corpses of would be pioneers of the new movement lie in the streets
    the called out and chosen have love waxed cold because of personal defeats
    the writing is on the wall but everyone is marrying and remarrying
    but the ancient truth no one is truly carrying
    the blind minister promises prosperity for a blind and naked sheep
    the Lord is disgusted by this and the prophets have begun to weep
    He knocks on the door because he is not in the building but they keep building
    million dollar organizations but their will to His Spirit they are not yielding
    mega choirs raise their voices in disdainful melodies
    while the object of their adoration says “take that noise away from me”
