... conscience






by Scott Krippayne/Dean Krippaehne

Saw his old weathered fist holding on tight to that brown paper bag

Pressed it up to his lips and took another sip in the rain

He was mumbling words on the edge of the curb with his eyes to the ground

I would’ve walked on by but I thought I heard him say

I am Jesus

I’m your mother, father

Sister, brother

Your son and daughter

You can pretend you don’t hear me

You can say I don’t exist

But I am

I am Jesus

I admit right at first I thought he was just some crazy old fool

‘Til he carefully shifted his gaze and looked up at me

I recalled an old phrase from back in the days as his desperate eyes sunk in

Something about whatever you do to the least of these – you do to me

Repeat Chorus

There’s no way

Could it be

I don’t know

Maybe he

Was some sort of homeless angel

With a message just for me

Repeat Chorus


by Pennywise


look at all these people lying around

look at all these people being scraped right off the ground

because of too many broken homes

too many cardboard boxes

too many people who just can't survive

hard losses well americans don't belong in tins

let's learn to help ourselves before we help the foreign

wounded decay shout out dismay

can you hear their voices yelling out mayday

why are we sending money over seas

look out your window our nation's the one that needs

because there's not enough income

there's too much poverty

why must we lose more lives before our eyes will see

we'll leave it alone hope it goes away

its hard to ignore life when you live it everyday

I'd like to see I'd like to say I'd like to hear that help is on the way

here today where tomorrow?

death in the shadows

affects us all

too many bodies lie in the street

too many hungry mouths that have the right to feed


by Pink Floyd

"On The Turning Away"

On the turning away

From the pale and downtrodden

And the words they say

Which we won't understand

"Don't accept that what's happening

Is just a case of others' suffering

Or you'll find that you're joining in

The turning away"

It's a sin that somehow

Light is changing to shadow

And casting it's shroud

Over all we have known

Unaware how the ranks have grown

Driven on by a heart of stone

We could find that we're all alone

In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night

As the daytime is stirring

Where the speechless unite

In a silent accord

Using words you will find are strange

And mesmerised as they light the flame

Feel the new wind of change

On the wings of the night

No more turning away

From the weak and the weary

No more turning away

From the coldness inside

Just a world that we all must share

It's not enough just to stand and stare

Is it only a dream that there'll be

No more turning away?
