Force a Smile

W/M by Tharek Mokbul

-Lyrics-
When the world is in battle,
It grows hard to see,
The fights that occur within lines.

Constant distraction dispensed
From the top
of the castle
With oil down its sides.

All of the effort
now wasted inVain.
The anarchy has been prescribed.

Now all of you people ,
So classless in spring,
Know not how you have been deceived .

Know not how you have been deceived.

Equal to only the fish in your pond,
The sharks have shut down
All The streams.

And while we nip tails,
and forget Countless days,
Our children will poison the lake

For we are the reason why we hate our life.
Your eyes don’t match either side.
One sees the trouble and taints where you gaze.
The other stays closed whilst you cry.

Through all the torture, we cheer either side. Caught up in the lies that we feed.

Fodder for masters, that pull on our strings. We find that our scissors are blunt.

We find our scissors won’t cut.

Agree with Keith - definite shades of Cat Stevens! Wonderfully effortless - a delight!

~ I don’t cut off the tails, and don’t see where to look, I do love life as it is, even if my scissors are hopelessly blunt, hopelessly blunt… ~

Well, there is a big one here. I love just a guitar and a voice, it’s the folkiness in me. Sad song, chirpilly done! Lovely stuff!

Hello Tharek, I sent you an email to warn you the song was going to be played but I can’t find it, mind you I do delete everything. Or it may have been a guest comment on here. I wondered why you hadn’t replied. I want you to know that I credited you, I am very hot on crediting, it’s so important. Your beautiful music was the inspiration for that song and the vocal arrangement was down to Tess. Wow! The people on Songcrafters are so incredibly kind! I saw I was welcomed on there but couldn’t make a comment, please will you thank everyone for all their downloads and wonderful comments. Thank you, Cheers Bethan. :)
