We are not there yet
We have not evolved
We have no respect
We have lost control
We're going backwards
Ignoring the realities
Going backwards
Are you counting all the casualties?

Won’t find out until we grow

I've been so many places
In my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs
I've made some bad rhymes
I've acted out my love on stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and
I'm singing this song to you


A Song for You-Leon Russell

Look at the flowers and the green grass

Molly Hatchet"Stone In Your Heart".

 

"Is this how it ends?
We're strangers again
It's over but you won't explain
No kiss no goodbye, not one final lie
Just cold to the bone from the ice's that's runnin' through your veins
You have stone in your heart."

The warden threw a party in the county jail
The prison band was there, and they began to wail
The band was jumpin', and the joint began to swing
You should've heard them knocked out jailbirds sing
