if we make the rules
and we’re in control
if all we can lose
is an empty soul….....
1-then why should I be loyal
if none are greater than me
what is there to obey
but my own vanity
2-I’ll claim my own image
my name shall be adored
and be equal to my pride
an idol for the world
3-I’ll assume authority
by all that is divine
disregarding ancient truth
and claim all wisdom is mine
4-my desire will drive me
on fortunes’ endless quest
drunk on the wine of fame
my greed will never rest
5-my parents I will blame
the elders I will scorn
for holding me to task
from the day I was born
6-I’ll be free to live my life
loving all who follow me
hating all who criticize
and all who came before me
7-I’ll marry whom I choose
and love all whom I will
I’ll command an army of flesh
to march just for the thrill
8-I’ll tear down all the walls
and open all the cages
liars, thieves, and friends in need
loyal to freedoms’ wages
9-the lie will be the truth
the truth will be for sale
I’ll revel in inequity
and deny the fires of hell
10-and all will serve my pleasure
and covet what they see
I’ll bear witness to every lust
and keep them enthralled to me
if we make the rules
and we’re in control
if all we can lose
is an empty soul….....

Awesome poem...A song i'm reminded of: "I lost it all to find everything". You can listen to it on You Tube.
