Tame The Heart

A call is going out into all the nation
 purity, morality & values
 We have closed are eyes from reality
 Instead have chosen gross decency

 hands, heart, eyes & feet
 Shelter lies dormant amidst it's beckoning call
 a challenge to be free is a question of time

 Sullen hearts with a great gulf fix
 we are suddenly getting lost in the mix
 A loser is just another quitter but gets up and gives it one last try
 we have fallen short of the glory that is expected

 Getting lost in the sauce with a whole host of duration
 we may need a break on a long awaited vacation
 Become a beacon of light to a hurting world in need
 they just want to see you bleed

 One hand to hold a heart will mend
 who are you to put your trust in & depend
 There are lines being drawn in the sand
 Give us a heart saturated with truth

 Love should be the true essence of are existence
 faces, traces & mistakes made
 A hollow box yet tempered in the fire
 Love should be are full proof blown in desire

 They proclaim love yet it's only hate in disguise
 Don't try to fall for any of there twisted lies
 we are all in for a rude awakening & surprise
 the human heart is an opened door just ready to be explored
