Sacred Cowards

Postby josh » Tue Nov 28, 2017 9:03 pm

What's up with the weather?
Should we weather it in vain?
As the pale earth glides through cosmic tides
all the people ride in pain

She say's it's a passing storm
as she wipes her child's eyes
Though he shivers in his overalls
the gods within him rise

It's a mystery
oh will you heed it's call?
Or will apathy
take you to The Fall

It's on you, pal!

These Sacred Cowards
are living in our minds
They got no ideas
so they take what's yours and mine

There ain't no reason
for us to lose it all right now
I tried to tell you,
but I couldn't think up how

The stars are shining
while they're dancing out in space
If you watch them with a patient eye
you can understand their race

The ancient wise men
could travel without ships
They would walk on the horizon
with a swagger in their hips

(Vom Vorton)

noone likes being told that they’re wrong
when they declare their love for a film or song
(back down! back down you sacred coward!)
but when consensus is declared
I can’t help feel a little scared
(back down! back down you sacred coward!)

all I ever wanted was to share my hate
for something the world was told was great
but no… I remain a sacred coward

noone likes a voice that strays from the choir
to call a classic “uninspired”
(back down! back down you sacred coward!)
but am I wrong to feel wary when
you call me a contrarian?
(back down! back down you sacred coward!)

all I ever wanted was to raise my voice
and exercise my right to choice
but no… I remain a sacred coward
all I ever wanted was to lift my hand
and shout YOUR FAVOURITE THING IS ACTUALLY BLAND
but I guess I’ll remain a sacred coward

Sacred Coward
by Chumpy

they kneel not stand, to take a stand
and you just have a tantrum
could be true they don’t feel like you
when they hear that anthem
hand on your chest, trying your best
don’t remember so you wing it
could be why they set free so high
that not everyone can sing it

you could just do what’s right, you’ve got all the power
you always want to be the man of the hour
why don’t you just go quit, and crawl back to your tower
milk those sacred cows, cuz you’re a sacred coward

swine before pearls, likes little girls
he denied it and he meant it
he stands accused but won’t be refused
when elected to the senate
he’s firm on crime, and there’s no time
how ‘bout that second amendment
law and order, strong on the border
just excuses to defend him

you could just do what’s right, you’ve got all the power
you always want to be the man of the hour
why don’t you just go quit, and crawl back to your tower
milk those sacred cows, cuz you’re a sacred coward

you talk so loud when your friends are in the crowd
you puff yourself up by putting others down
your need’s so great for social approval
I just can’t wait for your oval removal

you could just do what’s right, you’ve got all the power
you always want to be the man of the hour
why don’t you just go quit, and crawl back to your tower
milk those sacred cows, cuz you’re a sacred coward

How long, how long
’Til you make me feel like I’m gone
How long, how long

I let you down
And you made me feel like I’m strong
How long, how long

Am I a fool for staying
Am I cruel to say goodbye

Am I afraid to say it
Is it cool to be so blind

I drag you down
And you make me feel like I’m wrong
How long, how long

How long, how long,
’Til you maybe realize I’m gone
How long, how long

When all we have is sacred
Then it’s true I’m a sacred coward
