Haunting, intelligent singer-songwriter.

RIGHTEOUS

RIGHTEOUS

You can see everyday in a starving child’s eyes
You can see it in Parliament in the politicians lies
You can see it in the violence of a drunken weekend night
And you can see it in the streets in the past stains of a fight
You can see it in a gambler when his ante amounts to nothing
You can see it in the Warlords itching to have a go on THAT button
You can see it in the lover when their heart gets caught and torn
And you can see it in the Middle East, the wars go on and on
The son screamed “FATHER”, what they trying to do to me?
Are those images for real that they show on their TV
I gave their souls clemency, I gave them second chance and choice
But their darkness is blocking out the light, I can’t find the righteous
You can see it in a family when a child is taken away
You can see it in the meek falling to their knees to pray
And you can see it in a homeless man sheltering from the wind
And you can see it in a child, when they witness their first sin
You can see it in the shadows that the destroyers made
You can see it in the heart of man, all his vanity
You can see it in the skies as we run from the mushroom
Diamonds laying in ash, as mother nature licks her wounds
The son screamed “FATHER”, what they trying to do to me?
Are those images for real that they show on their TV
I gave their souls clemency, I gave them second chance and choice
But their darkness is blocking out the light, I can’t find the righteous
