The hourglass is going faster than usual
Above, are people running like clouds in opposite directions
Bathe in oil luxe with sweeping powers
Chunk ice in champagne, sipping red cerise in martini.
[but their hearts are muddy
Others, swell up due to fasting hourglass
Below, dawn of darkness takes eternal stand
The illiteracy threads from letter A to Z
with banners of hope awaiting to be initiated.
[Their vulnerability lead to settlement of wrong choices.
Even with the hourglass is going faster than normal
Nuts-lycans are going unlimited on budgets
with no understanding that downstairs are trumpeting for help
And if they are making their voices heard then chains must be placing on wrists
[Like cloth forced down throats for silence.
The hourglass is going faster and faster
Church bell tolls as advocate at their mercy
But are the Nuts-lycans take conscience of the ruby-ring as promised?
Instead they wag their dragon tails and parade like the 1957's dance.
[Mainstream media has duck-tape on.
Under thick fire tear gas- still, the hourglass is going.
Like a running water faucet, not a coincidence to cry.
Looking back at those banners of hope- choice was wrongly written
Illiteracy clouded the nation from taking the right stand.
[And the hourglass continues to go down faster.
