I’m beginning to wonder about your intensions

Too many instances of deception

Too many alibis and excuses

Too many attempts to deny the abuses

Too many reasons to complain

Too many losses too little gain

The very existence is a strain on the people

 

I know cause I am woman so I can see

That life don’t reside where there isn’t no harmony

And I sing cause I care and wouldn’t want anybody

That I love to be circumstanced out of existence

 

Yes I’m beginning to wonder about your attention

where is it focusing in what direction

is your life force in execution

forming opinions or finding solutions

declaring the victim, sharing the blame

representing the potential for change but only in name

then with taxation and oppression put a strain on the people

 

I speak what I know; Words are reserved for the truth

Not perfect but aware of the example I set for the youth

And I sing cause I care and wouldn’t want none of these sons and daughters

To go astray when I could have paved the way

 

Yes I’m beginning to tire of all these expenses

Borne by the people relegated to zinc fences

Keeping the resources out of their reach

Breeding frustration with the values you teach

In the media everyday then deny them a way to attain it

But force them to work and maintain it and not take a share

Then the police force the fear into the brains of the people

 

I know from experience that the system is flawed and unfair

So I live outside it as much as I possibly dare

and I sing for justice in a time when the people

may be too distracted to even care

my voice will still be there

 

The people have to work so hard while those with the power keep the plenty for themselves. Meaningless competition for scares resources in a material driven world. Our children have no example of integrity and industry and love. And so for these atrocities against humanity the perpetrators will have to pay.
