No Kinship

Momma sang…

Sister danced…

Dirty old men crowded around

with clapping hands

and silver fell from grateful pockets

 

Driving by real slow

In a jealous rage

Taking aim…

BAM!

A shot rings out

And Momma and Daughter see

But they keep it hush, hush

Step-Grandfather is stricken

But doesn’t die

He’s been shot

without ever knowing who or why?

 

Part 1 of one of the greatest lies

Nothing confessed…

Though churchin’ to be seen

All of a generation then more

Now destined to live in a hearse

And over time bad turned to worse

 

You know what happened

You saw it all

You kept it silent

Judgment fell upon us all

Sins of the Father

Didn’t you hear that small still call?

 

Feared for yourselves

Self preserved in guilt and shame

Forgot our Father who art in Heaven

Forgot to call on His Son’s name

Such a shame…

 

Under a curse

Under a curse

Under a curse

And it only got worse

You don’t see it

Because the world loves it’s own

So whose gonna burst that bubble

Encompassing a self-made throne?

 

They’d probably still be with us

If only they had humbled themselves

And bowed and knealt in fear

It’s the beginning of all wisdom

Seek ye’ first the Kingdom of God

And all these things will be added to you

But what did you?

But keep silent…

As some still do till this very day

Lord have mercy…

Upon us all.
