    The Trance of Romance

    The battle of the sexes is not our fight
    It belongs to the others who've stolen our light
    Now we're lost in this sexual wilderness
    Chained to our pleasures and perverted delights.
    It started long before we were born
    So we didn't know that we had been robbed
    Of our true nature and life and charm.
    We were taught that romance was universal
    And all of us had a right to be loved
    But Rome was not one of our preferred destinations
    Nor was learning the languages of deviance it spawned.
    What I'm saying is difficult to comprehend
    But the truth of it will resonate deep within
    Because of the chocolate, the red roses, the freak
    Their concept of love has made us so weak
    That everything un-natural we follow along
    Despite what thousands of years has shown us is wrong.
    We eat, drink and sleep sex as if it's the air
    Abusing our bodies like we just don't care
    Ryhming and scheming to flirt on each other
    Plotting and planning to hurt on each other
    Without the Original Guidance of Know
    We're becoming the children of the people of snow
    Who have no morals or standards to show
    Who have no rhyme, no rhythm, no flow.
    We must dig up the True Knowledge of Self
    And read those Black books we put on the shelf.
    We must stop wasting time chasing sex as romance
    Thinking that love is some white game of chance
    The goal of the other is to kill off our mind
    And every time we f--k we kill our own kind.

    You said a mouthful. Well, I don't know whose idea it is, that it should be otherwise, but true love is from the soul. Everything else stems from that. I can always count on you to give us reason to ponder once, twice, and thrice.
