Social Pariah

22 01 2014

Were one to begin
Defining our esteem
A man of mountains
Or the one who walks with dreams
In times of crisis
Reciting confidence
Manipulator of crowds
They ask for more, you show less

In the eighties
The off-rhythm decade
Born again flirtation
Traveling with the moonlighting dead
Congratulations
Jokerman night after night
The infidels are singing
But they don’t own the copyright

How the mighty have fallen
After giving their all
For the good of the people
And no curtain call
Lost amongst the crowd
Without even a Hi or how are ya
Welcome to the new age of
Social Pariah

Of the creators
With hearts of fire
Oh mercy in that spirit
Where the instance of greatness desire
Glinting suggestive
Cascading, complex
Tea leaf green low anthems
Are better left alone at best

A dozen examples
From an out-of-print world
The music of masses
Electronic boys and girls
Soundtrack to a film
Disowned for its time
The notes of programmed melodies
Replaced the rhythm of life

How the mighty have fallen
After giving their all
For the good of the people
And no curtain call
Lost amongst the crowd
Without even a Hi or how are ya
Welcome to the new age of
Social Pariah
