Attempting to Inspire Change

Tell me lies that you cannot disguise
And I’ll tell you a story of truth
Awaken your mind to the blackening skies
Take your hand and lead you to Ruth

Ruth lies in a tomb beneath the ground
The current cemetery rests upon that
When we visit we shall not make a sound
And we shall sit exactly where she sat

We will be listening for her spoken word
But we must listen with our hearts
For her voice is a knowledge that cannot be heard
As it tears capitalism into parts

When we return your world shan’t be the same
There will be disappointment at every turn
But with awareness you’ll act again and again
And one day have the privilege to watch it burn

But for now we must be smart, with open eyes
We must be without fear and hopeful of change
Never enraptured with the words of their lies
And always living our lives that little more strange
