A Voice

A voice from the past
Entered my head today
Fresh and alive. Full of life, passion and pain.
A voice now past.
A beautiful soul. Gone, gone, gone.

Speaking clearly – clearer than the living
Talking perfect sense
Used to not being understood
While talking perfect sense to the next generation

A voice from the past
Entered my head today
Tiny child sighed in my ear.
Giving up breathing in
Over and out
Taken by bad luck and the ill fortune of geography.

Common cold. Dirty water. HIV.
Common apathy. Common crime.
Perfect nonsense to the next generation

Dead yet alive
Gone but shouting anger
Gone but talking perfect sense

Have we caught up yet?
Is it time? Well I say it is. I say it is.
Deaf and dumbed-down
Enough is enough

Give me a smile. Hold out your hand.
I don’t want your money
I don’t want your land
I want you to wake up and do
something strange
I want you to listen
I want you to feel someone else’s pain.

Faith

 hand

What I have here in my hand
Is like faith but not faith
For those without faith also have
What I have here in my hand.

What I have here in my hand
Is like feeling but deeper
It’s why I am here

What I have here in my hand
Is knowledge without proof
What I have here in my hand
This is what I feel for you

It’s why the earth is alive
It makes electricity work
And fire dance in the sky..

Feel it
Feel inside the atoms where the science breaks down
If you didn’t believe in love
You’d have to make it up

What I have here in my hand
Is like faith but not faith
What I have here in my hand
This is what I feel for you

What I have here in my hand
Is like knowing but deeper
It’s why I am here
