“Time to Choose” [video]

Posted on Updated on

HERE’S A VIDEO of “Time to Choose”, a song from my album, “The Key”. It was made by staff of The Liberty Beacon as they felt it summed up their mission statement “Eradicating Programmed Ignorance”. Click below and crank up your volume!

(Click on the link below the video to read the lyrics)


Why… is your inner eye so firmly closed to try

to see the truth concealed behind the lie –
the tangled web which weaves itself around us (drowns us)?
Will… you look with all your heart beyond the veil
appearances can fool the weak and frail
In a world that’s torn apart with greed and coldness (soulless)

[Refrain]
Will you always believe every falsehood that you’re told?
Won’t you please seek the truth? You can watch it unfold
like a flower in the Spring taking root in your soul.
May your ignorance fade and your sight be made whole…

When… our minds and thoughts are twisted by the men
who only seek to kill and to condemn,
integrity will fade and darkness reign (insane).
Words… said cunningly can take us for a ride
mislead us so that in the great divide
we’ll find ourselves in dark instead of light (night).

[Vocal bridge]
It will not be too long
(my heart bleeds through this song)
till we will all be forced to make a choice.
There’s much since we were young
to which we’ve madly clung;
but now the time has come to find our voice.

When… with clever talk they make us all afraid
just so their iron rule will be obeyed
collaborators we become beside them (frightened).
How… can human beings turn to acts of war
when only friendship like a bird should soar
up through love’s blue azure in angel’s rays? (amaze)

When… will all the bitter thoughts be turned to dust –
those swords instead of thinking how to thrust
will carve a gateway through the walls between us (clean us)?
Who… is bold enough to take that tender stride –
no more to fix our frozen gaze and hide?
The future of this fallen world compels us (gels us).

[Refrain]
Will you always believe every falsehood that you’re told?
Won’t you please seek the truth? You can watch it unfold
like a flower in the Spring taking root in your soul.
May your ignorance fade and your sight be made whole…
