Entry: "where will you stand..."

Where will you stand brotherman?
when they write your name in sand
on marble steps in a foreign land
weeping mommas trying to understand
the token telephone calls he was a good soldier
a fine young man a patriot coming of age
not ready to rage against the tyranny of it all
taking the fall for some fool on The Mall
unable to stall the eventual fall from grace
of an empty space that could never be erased
it still unbelievable just how much of a waste
a fools nightmare has cost the human race
at the end of time
Where will you stand?

Where will you stand sistahgirl?
when they open the door to Babylon
and beckon with promises of the world
the very earth beneath your feet will be as gold
getting old yet still the lies that are left untold
will swallow your dreams and let your life unfold
as a plastic beauty pretty as hell yet empty as a shell
you have no time to be real it'll kill your sex appeal
reaching for crumbling dreams of being a fools Queen
a prize in disguise in the window of lies
if only for the night
Where will you stand?
