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
