Born To Die.

Born To Die (Warning may offend).


We are born to die

within that murky truth we fly.

But inside we lie.

Wings of clay

carry us away.

People search for a god

begotten by a will to live.


they try to escape the truth!

Six million Jews….

Pogrom after Pogrom

century after century

against the Jews gypsies and queers.

The “different”.

The “wrong colour”.


All for a lie.


Syria and Iraq.



Afghanistan and the poor lost Congo.

Thousands of children…

Disease and early deaths.

Peoples last lonely painful breath.

Psalm 98:3

“He has remembered His lovingkindness 

and His faithfulness to the house of Israel;

All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.”

(Except for the above)

Living lives with one lonely eye

cast upon a darkening sky.

Opening your eye’s to lifes banality

you know deep down

your going to be a casualty.

People trying to lead good lives

only to spiral and crash

as all around turns to ash.

So come twirl and dance with me

as we can come face our reality.

See with me this endless mime

so for John 3:17….. He’s taking his time.
