Capitol Hill

No one is right,
No one is wrong,
How the Ivory Tower,
Was safe for so long.

Embroidered with silk,
And lined with gold,
We lost our voice
To the Capitol sold.

“What is ours is ours,
And cannot be taken.”
If only for hours,
The Empire was shaking.

“Somehow a House upon a Hill,
Stands for all but our will.”
We have waited for so long,
Today a few dared to belong.

My Baby

My babys a bad liar
And I smile for her day to day.
My babys a bad liar
And I let her have her way.
My babys a bad liar
She don’t know what I see.
My babys a bad liar
She don’t know eyes are free.
My babys a bad liar
Wouldnt have her in other hands.
My babys a bad liar
Shes run off to another man.
My babys a bad liar
She came to me today.
My babys a bad liar
I know she wont stay.

Baby hangs on her arms
Strange fruit on a tree,
Her other arm
On a broken wheel.

She tells me what she wants:
“A wrap, a kit, one Old E .
Got somethin for my baby?
Anything for free ? “

“Honey I’ll pay you back tomorrow
I’ll be working tonight you hear
Just something to borrow
Anything, please?”

“My head hurts
Im a dollar short on three,
Come on now suga
Im good for it sweety”

Baby hangs on her arms
Strange fruit on a tree
Her other arm
On a broken wheel.

His head slumped over
With pearly eyes,
He’ll love his mama
Until the day he dies.
