PAYMENT IS DUE.

PAYMENT IS DUE.

When the fighting gets too much
And the voices far too loud
Its time, you know its time
To turn away, close the door
Forget the clock on the wall
Ticking away your life

Here is all the sentiments to fight
The death no death at all to see
Only within does the feeling leave
A hatred for one?s another kind

Peeling off problems they cant stand
To wafers of innocence near by
Left to meet the costs
And plagued by circumstance
They pick up the tab for ignorance

What is to become of better days
If all the greed meets as one
Such a crescendo never to hear
Only silence you get when you have fear

This is all for the love, the love
Don’t tell the weaker to give in
That’s taken for granted a burden shared
Is not a burden halved only doubled

Creating remorse where none should tread
Forcing the wine through unrepentant lips
Watching like the hawk they sit
Pacing back and forth from there
They see unwary would be fools
And pounce like Jeckells and Mr. Hyde’s

Playing like children on strings
You never knew you had
Coughing up you realise
This is one trip always to return

For peace of mind, the still is broken
And any price is low enough to pay
To feel the wind again on brow

Out from under strain
And breathing good clean air
Where are all the pleaders now
Laughing from their gilded cages
At those below and all,
Yes all for the love, the love of money.
