Man In Time

Man In Time

A Poem by Bruce Bray
"

one day i was wondering what those crazy guys that unthinkable things and believe they are right in doing so would be like. so i just wrote this about them. (crazy people)

"

seeking refuge from the sheep
spreading poison in his sleep
waking from the smell of lies
trapped within his own disguise
watching closely what we do
what we say to hide the truth
sinking deeper in his head
face of stone his anger fed

--
man in time,
man in time,
hide his face from human kind
burning bridges from the blind
manipulate and blow your mind
--

whisper softly from his god
heed the words that make him nod
go and leave your world behind
suffer truth my will devine
if they stray you have my word
strike them down almighty sword
keep my strength you shall not die
give no quarter when they cry

--
man in time,
man in time,
hide his face from human kind
burning bridges from the blind
manipulate and blow your mind
--

devise a plan and go his way
waiting's over time to play
fall from grace and feel his blade
grace is love but love is hate
walk among us in disguise
he has patience on his side
until the day when time is near
to execute and strike with fear

--
man in time,
man in time,
hide his face from human kind
burning bridges from the blind
manipulate and blow your mind

I really enjoyed this amazing write. I can feel the rhythm. This flows ever so well. I like the message in this as well. Well written and enjoy to read.

Maybe because it hits so close to home, but this sounds like addiction and the destruction that it does internally to a person. This is a fantastic write...can't wait to hear the music put to the words!!

This piece read out wonderfully. The flow is exeptional and the pace is very consistant. I love the way the subject matter seemed to sink into my mind as I read...The lines just got better as this went on. Great write indeed. Great job...
