Harsh words from the bitter breed
Catching many that will listen
To a touch of evil
That seems to capture us all.

Young and restless
Entertainment onto life's screen
The here and now
Evading the respect of tomorrow

Lights sometimes appealing
Blindfolds to the greedy
An ageless audience
That gently touches the shades of evil.
