Has been ever so like this,
The fight never does cease,
The fight between the might
And the meek,
Never fails to ruin, what was
My peace!
Whatever I seek, till I decease.
Destroyed is my peace!

My peace, my peace, My peace!

When the gates came down,
Man sat up with a frown,
Pulled another one down,
Stage full of clowns.

Crazy though it seems,
Of guilt it reams,
Milk without the cream,
I cry without a scream.

Each kin and each kith,
Seeks to gnaw his teeth,
Into the flesh of the week,
No sound, no tweak!

Is this real or a trick?
Nature and life, so bleak,
Darkness looms, black
Shadows from the creek.

Has been ever so like this,
The fights never does cease,
The fight between the might
And the meek,
Never fails to ruin, what was
My peace!
Whatever I seek, till I decease.
Destroyed is my peace!

My peace, my peace, My peace!

Shallow is thy grave,
Children play their game,
Grow old all the same,
Kill in God's name!

They say, "Rest in Peace",
They mean, "Rust in piece",
They say, "Long live the king",
They mean, "Child enter the ring",

They say, "Love thy neighbour",
They mean, "Hurt thy father",
They say, "Enjoy your life",
They mean, "Enjoy thy kill"

This might be sarcastic,
I think this is sadistic,
To kill one's brethren,
Is not even done by the Devil!

Has been ever so like this,
The fights never does cease,
The fight between the might
And the meek,
Never fails to ruin, what was
My peace!
Whatever I seek, till I decease.
Destroyed is my peace!

My peace, my peace, my peace!

Till I decease, I lose my peace,
Till I decease, till I decease,
Till I decease, I lose my peace,
My peace, my peace, my peace!




 Take each day as it comes,
Consider each day as a flight,
Try hard to succeed and fly,
Surely then you will reach some height.

But if by some chance you don’t,
Remember that tomorrow will always come.
Learn this well and learn this hard
That today’s efforts will pay for tomorrow’s fun.
