Truth be told

Iron Dragon 1964 (San Gabriel, Ca.)

Truth be told
I'm not that old
To see it in plain view
Life is long, but just one song
The endings always true
We come & we go
Like the melodies that are sung
Some highs, some lows
Some cautions, some woes
From the beat that ever flows
Life is a name
Played again and again
As generation come and go
Hold fast this one thought
Never to be forgot
Let humanity never be lost
On the power and greed of the day
Stand in hope!! and play, back to back songs every day
Love the one new and far
Only one song, make sure it is long
To leave your love on this earth
Because when your gone
The song carries on, to those who are left behind
So leave them with love, with just enough tugs
To help them carry on
For love you see, is what we all need
To save life's HUMANITY
