Lo’ Down
Music&Lyrics: Keith "Plex" Barnhart

Destiny has a way of laughing at the fate of a dying man
Technology, compromised by nature, is the face of bleeding hand
I try, to comply to the riddle what’s been seen is what’s been done
Realization, to the task of the jurors and the horrors yet begun

Breathless, suffocating, as I rise above my mire
Completion, restitution of a love that’s lost entire
Religion, the pacifier and the discipline of fear
I shy from a cry in the middle of a storm I do not hear

Challenges known of arms to bear, the child is not replete
Fanaticism, a burgeoning art to combat a losing fete
When I turn the volume down, a silent scream begins!

Sacrifice! Lo’ Down!

The games afoot to seal the breach of chasms old and blue

Acquisition is a custom-fit in a world that’s off the rack
Of goods and deeds and crude debris and monkeys on my back
Coercion is the tool of the man of which there’s no escape
Freedom from the bonds of greed and miles of yellow tape

Love is deprivation of the truth you cannot face
Hate is preservation of the smile you can’t erase
Emptiness is the full abandon of the choice you never make
Happiness is the taste of reason that a soul will never take

If death has no master and evil has no throne
Then crime has no temple and fear has no home

Sacrifice! Lo’ Down!
