The song I’m putting up this week has the capacity to offend those who don’t understand the words. However, I’m not going to rationalise my intent. I’ll simply post the lyrics for you to ponder. I sincerely hope you hear what I’m saying and that it resonates with you.

 

 

It’s not so much the writer as the words

It’s not so much the sound as what is heard

It’s not so much the asking as the awful need

It’s not so much the hunger as the greed

 

In a world without end

Hallelujah and Amen

Where is God when angry men

Kill happy children?

 

It’s not so much laughter as the joke

It’s not so much the gamble as the hope

It’s not so much the giving as it’s what we take

It’s not so much the work as what we make

 

It’s not so much the victim as the crime

It’s not so much the finish as the time

It’s not so much the fighter as the worthwhile cause

It’s not so much the silence as the pause
