Do They Know

24 Nov

In the land of lonely exiled preachers
And all of the banished saints,
Where broken down in decadence
They register complaints
To all the hearing weary subjects
Whose minds are ever swayed

Desperation talks in time
To private nations and their kind
It told them all to lie and they obeyed

Do they know time, do they know love or is it hate?
How slyly hypnotized when free will is too late
And do they know, what do they know
And how do you know?

They gather in the mystic hills
to knock on heaven’s door
Riding out the pleasure sea
Just to writhe on a bloody shore
Who’s to say it’s Heaven when one man calls it hell
Who’s to say such ‘freedom’ won’t become a prison cell
To lock away those wishers by the well

Do they know dark delusion, or are they birds of light?
Do they indulge full lust in flesh and disregard what’s right
And do they know, what do they know
And how do you know?
