Laugh At Your Fears

Oh my dear girl
Laugh at your fears
Out there is a world
Crueler than it appears

Let it not frighten, scare you
When a wild storm nears
Let it not disturb, tear you
Darling, laugh at your fears

When you are feeling lonely
When certainty disappears
Remember one thing only
Learn to laugh at your fears

When the terrifying demons grin
Their haunting sound reach your ears
There is one way to win
Baby, you have to laugh at your fears

Nobody ever taught me
Through all these dreaded years
So daughter go one up on me
Laugh back at your fears

Tonight We Have No Food To Eat

We’ve got no food to eat
But we’ve got stories to tell
So come on children line up around
The night will pass on well

Wanna hear about a dragon?
Or about a little dino?
Yes the one who got really upset
When he hurt his giant toe

Or we can discuss fairies
Elves, dwarfs and gnomes
Who built in an underground cave
Their beautiful magical homes

Or why not tell some horror tales
Of those who defied death
Who spit venom as they please
Who leak blood with their breath

Oh I have got a great story
About God who lives above
He blesses us with hope and patience
With family, strength and love

Oh baby I know you’re hungry
Let a new story be read
Tonight we have no food to eat
These stories are our bread

Just Passing By

A little lonely and a little cold
Not having a warm thing to hold
I’m just passing by
Please step out of my way
Serene scenes sweep up the air
Screeching trains come and disappear
All these catch my eye
But I have nothing to say
Days are days and nights are nights
Days are the same
But nights are different

Spare a thought for the hungry man
Who tries to do the best he can
Excuse me Sir
Can you tell me the fare?
Don’t look up, don’t look straight
Let your Future sleep with Fate
Don’t even look at her
Or even here or there
Days are quiet and nights are bright
Days seem the same
But the nights have all changed

Run me through the guide only
Tell me where to go
All the worries fail to glow
Nothing will matter if you don’t know
Days come and go with the morning sun
Nights stick around for some fun
It’s a little lonely
But I’ve always been so

Tomorrow My Life Is Going To Change

Tomorrow my life is going to change
I am unready to face the strange
Tonight is the night that I get
To cling to things I can’t forget
Tomorrow will bring a brand new dawn
Like the one I’ve never known
Tonight I sleep in a familiar bed
On such pillow I rest my head
Tomorrow I may cry all alone
For I will be lost and unknown
Tonight is the night I have to smile
So let me be happy for a while

All Men Are Born With Flaws

Come people, look around you
See what I can see
There’s not a single one of us
Can flawless claim to be

I see a lazy man
Idling his time away
I also see a glutton
Eating night and day

There I see a gambler
Who’s gambled all his life
I also know a friend
Who’s cheating on his wife

Scores of men I see
To whom anger comes too easy
I also see men corrupt
Violent and sleazy

It aches to see a child
Who thinks that lying is fun
It aches more to see another
Handling a gun

It aches to see a teen
Who’s found a friend in drugs
It aches to hear of teens
As criminals and thugs

So many sinners and fraudsters
Everywhere you see
Oh people look around you
Look at you and me

No matter how hard we try
We can’t escape Nature’s claws
Never consider yourself perfect
All men are born with flaws

A Little Hungry, A Little Poor

My head’s a little hungry
My heart’s a little poor
I’ve always been fearful
I’ve never been sure
I keep delaying things
I keep running round
Like an unknown planet
Waiting to be found
I could change myself but it still will be me
I could never walk straight right through a door
For my head will always be hungry
And my heart will always be poor

My lips are tasteless
My eyes are a blur
I’ve always been frightened
Of that there’s no cure
I keep learning things
I keep forgetting folks
I remember every tear
Hidden in my jokes
I know all about the world but nothing about me
I’ve a desk full of honours, prizes galore
But my head will always be hungry
And my heart will always be poor

My dreams are quite simple
My thoughts I adore
My pulses are special
Down to the core
I have a lot of problems
I am full of flaws
I am indecisive
It’s part of my clause
Whatever I am, whatever I may be
Silly, foolish, naive, dumb, immature
But my head will always be hungry
And my heart will always be pure

Education System

Oh this education system is a fail
They say math is beautiful
To that I will agree
They say math speaks truth
But that truth I can’t see
Well at least you can see my heart wail
Oh this education system is a fail

Oh this education system is a fail
They taught me calculus
I studied zero and pi
Math is supposed to be fun
But boy it makes me cry
They’re hammering my head with a nail
Oh this education system is a fail

Oh this education system is a fail
I can solve all the problems
With sin, cos and tan
But I don’t know how to use them
I don’t know where or when
How much longer will this madness prevail?
Oh this education system is a fail

Oh this education system is a fail
I am a master of none
But a jack of all trades
I never bothered learning
Only bothered about grades
I’m a boat with winds but no sail
Oh this education system is a fail
