A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey

Punk style lyrics I wrote for my punk band Circle Seven think Bad Brains meets Richard Hell


You yell so loud no one cares to hear

A one-man revolution in your own head

All your brave words cant mask your fear

What new enemy will come when these ones are dead?


Look within yourself

Tell me what you see

I look at you

I see only empty


Coil yourself in negativity and pride

Your failures are your own design

Behind a holy wall you hide

Still never ounce do you cross the line


Look within yourself

Tell me what you see

I look at you

I see only empty


Staring up at Caesars ghost

Painting yourself with flattery

Always right everyone else is always wrong

I wonder how you can carry on


You want to kill

You don’t have the guts

You want the world to change

As long as someone else does it for you


Man- with the big ideas

Man- no one sees your face

Man- let others do for you

Let them do what you dare not do


You yell so loud only the foolish hear

Wasting there lives for your ideas

Repeating your brave words without any fear

Locked behind bars your enemies are dead


A new hate appears

It goes on and on and on and on
