-TEARZ of INK-
These hollow minds, all they see iz dollar signs-
& when it comes 2 record companies tha bottom line-
iz all about tha platinum & gold-
It'z all about tha units sold,Don't care about tha lies that'z told-
All about tha profit margin & we see tha profits starvin'-
& I watch tha youth who lack tha truth so their heartz harden-
They keep em restrained, they keep em entertained-
They keep em distracted,so revolution won't enter tha brain-
Never again do I wanna see what happened when-
I take a trip down memory lane-
& if we part of tha problem then should we ever complain?
They try 2 keep tha knowledge classified,so we will stay pacified-
My blood boils, touches tha soil under tha concrete-
Chainz are breakin', Giants waken from a long sleep-
Try 2 be at peace but ya'll ain't goin' 4 it-
& this problem won't ever go away if we ignore it-
Had a wound on my soul & my psyche now it'z infected-
I tried 2 use a band-aid & then just forget it-
Now it'z poisoned & will kill me if I leave it unattended-
A lot of us still need 2 heal cause we just pretended-
That everything's OK, But our father's so offended--
( excerpt from Tearz of Ink song, copyright Silas Clark WAR CRY PRODUCTIONS 2003)

THE MESSAGE:Who stole tha soul when we gave it all away? Tha time has come 4 us 2 stand up against a passive existence & start 2 see & think 4 our selves & not 2 accept tha watered down half truths that are being passed down 2 us systematically through false religiosity, ambitious politicians, & degrading stereotypes. We have been taught 2 be so selfish when tha only thing that matters in life iz love. Tha word love has been misused abused & slanderized that it almost sounds like all tha other 4 letter words. But Bruthaz & Sistaz learn what real love iz & seek truth only, not what U want 2 believe or what you've been taught 2 believe but what rings true in tha essence of your spirit.SEEK & U WILL FIND. ONE LOVE
