Itís not enough to say


We want silence in the day


Itís not enough to have


We must ever seek the salve


To plant upon our wound


That which from birth has wound


Around our heads and hearts and sought


To fill our bellies full of drought


 


It is not enough to take


A measure and a stake


In oneís own worth, you see


Itís not about your dignity


Itís not about a spirit call


Itís about the coin, thatís all
