once your star is shining bright

Once your star is shining bright
Everything seems to turn into golden rays
You will be in high demand in the corporate world
Even in the entertainment industry too

Every bigwig wants to share
The good bright star you will bring
The big companies or motion pictures companies
They will spend millions to get you in

Everything you request will be given
Even right to the smallest details
They will say “Everything can be arranged!”
Once your star is shining bright

Once it is over
You will find you are alone
The people whom you thought would know you
They will say it is a long time ago

You finally realize fame has a price to pay
While you were at the top of the game
You must prepare for the losing star
Don't get stucked in the past glory

All the wealth you have made
Do not lose it all by stupidity
Everything will be gone
Once you forget your root

the nation will face a new dawn

The weak government
We hear the nonsense in the news
Even a judge makes a bad ruling
Does he realize what he has written?

All of us are immigrants
During the centuries of our people
What we hear today is the arrogant speeches
The country is made up of the sum of her people

If only the government is strong
The willed of nation will not bend backwards
It is the poor management of government
It allows the Talibanism to raise its ugly head

The scandals hit the head
The sins will not go away
Though every sidekick will try to say
There is nothing wrong with it!

But the people know
The lies will not cover lies
It is the truth will make us free
We don't have to worry about backdoors swing

The cycle has to finish
It is at the final run of things
The nation will face a new dawn
It must happen now!

you live.....

You live by the gun
You will die by the bullets

You live by the lies
You will get conned yourself

You live by the sins
You will face the angel of fire

You live by bad intentions
Every prayer will not be answered

You live by doing bad things
You will stay in prison one day

You live by the sword
You will get knifed in it

You live by the truth

You will live free like the wind

you can't hide

You can't hide
You can put up gate
Locked it up throw away the keys
The sins will not go away

You can bend the agencies
Right or left; centre or down
Throw them benefits and promotions
Give them cash to spend in the moon

Will it work?
Satan will knock on doors
Carrying his bag to take souls
The many sinners the better!

You can twist your words
Give it a different tone and meaning
But the sins piling up at the backyard
It will be seen

the saturday night market

The Saturday night market
The crowd seem disappearing
Even the stalls are less these days
The economy isn't progressing is it?

The pockets are hurting
The households can't spend
The Saturday night market
The sorry state of affairs

The costs are rising
It never will go down
Bee Anne leaders can say
It is just a polishing economy

Everyone wants to control spending
The value of our money drops too
Everything naturally will be costly
Bee Anne leaders can say

We can't allow it to happen
Bee Anne has stayed too long on the field
It has run out of ideas and control
Bee Anne talks about religion and race

Using tax to shore up funding
Anybody can do it that way
What are the values to share?
It burdens the people

The Saturday night market
The crowd seem to disappear
The rising costs of our daily needs
The empty pockets with no saving

the stray cats roam

The stray cats roam
Living it up at my expense
Somebody is feeding the cats
It has become a nuisance

Yesterday there were the waste
Six of it on the garden trail
Leaving there for me to see
Hey servant! Throw it for me!”

The cats always thumb its noses
At the human beings
The cats treat the humans as their public servants
Clearing up the waste or else the aroma of bad smell

Today a black cat thorn the pages of newspapers
I saw the cat did it as I opened the door
The black cat quickly jumped over the fence
My morning paper in cuts and scratches

Some say feed the cats
They will not poo and urine
The cats will go somewhere else
I never know how true it is

will the loan sharks die naturally?

Will the loan sharks die naturally?
It is hard to say in the economic situations
The marginalised people will go in
They know the consequences of failing to pay

The police have warned the public
The numerous cases of physical fear
The red paint on gates and houses
The gangs will come calling everyday

The newspapers will highlight the cases
The loan sharks physical abuses of harm and fear
In spite of the numerous cases reported every time
The people still go down the thin plank of life

The police and rela members
Call the loan sharks and runners
They are easily seen in public notices
It isn't hard not to see it everyday

the great liar

The great liar
He can't play his Houdini act
The disappearance can't be had
Facing the music will be the end

The Bamboo River is singing high
The changing chords will bring out the best
The great liar has no place to hide
It is better he owned it up now

Join the crow in Bamboo River
Listen to the beating of the iron grills
It may bring some to change
Sins have to pay in the end

The great liar
Disappearing act isn't the choice
Facing the charges should be
The Bamboo River will not forget

the change we need

The sweet promises
It will come in months ahead
The transformation programmes
On race will hit the road

The wastage will be continued
In spite of the Auditor's Report
It will still be carried out
It's the money not from their pockets

Bee Anne leaders will shout
How good they are to manage the nation
While the Islamic militants will encroach in
Using the NGOs to hit the news

But Bee Anne leaders will stay quiet
Let these NGOs have a word or two
Let the fear spread to the ground
They forget it can't work now

The road of change
It has to happen
The nation needs it
So are her people

the get rich schemes

The get rich schemes
It can be called in many names
As long as it promises fantastic returns
Don't fall for the sales pitch

The recruiters will promise many benefits
It is the incitement to get your money
Once you fall into its trapping
You may try to convince yourself you never lose

Once the bottom fall in
The huge crash will make the news
You will finally realize your losses
You may not recover your saving

Quick money just for the greedy
A quick gun battle to win
Once it is over the winner rides away
Leaving the dead or injured on the ground

don't wait and pray

He wants to live
But fate takes a bad turn
A teenaged boy dies
Leaving his unfinished story

In a religious school
The assistant warden caned him repeatedly
Until his legs suffered bad bruises gangrene sat in
Doctors had to amputate both his legs
Even one of his arm too

He went into his coma
He died without fulfilling his life
A teenaged boy didn't cut it into adulthood
He died in the hand of an sadistic man

The police will investigate
Interview and recorded statements
Why never send him to hospital earlier?
Why keep it until it was too late?

The boy is dead
His life destination ended prematurely
May his soul get a peaceful place
Live his life in full in another age
