 One Flower Under A L.A. Freeway

Attack On Bali  (Indonesia)

Where the violence should not be happening

Tinsel eyes cry,and leap for their lives
All veils drop, and slide off like melted wax
The sacred of what is left fall to their burnt feet scream no more, not us no more, not us

Where the violence should not be happening

Bells once hanging dangle sideways and ring out in unwelcome smokey alarm
Come, meet the most fiery dance of this city
Scream no more, not us
No more, not us

Jeweled torso's are laden with the shreds of a surprise attack, and fear of a repeat performance

When people become prey, it is time to stop-
Let the world sleep it off, and forgive its' self.
Scream no more, not us.
