People

People, people!
Awake, and hear me,
a crying seagull.
The sky has darkened.
Iíll let you near me,-
Harken... harken.
 
I am your conscience,
a new messiah.
Within your mansions,
within your temples,
Iíll start a fire,
and you wonít tremble.
 
Stone walls will quiver,
your churches- crumble.
Take in my silver
and share my visions,--
walk in the rubble
of past convictions.
 
Open your cages!
People, people,--
your conscience rages
with warm affection.
See through a peephole
self-resurrection.
 
No books could teach you,--
the truthís inside you!
How can I reach you
within your dungeons?
See me beside you,--
I am your conscience!
 
See me beside you,--
Iím small and brittle...
The truthís inside you,
people, people...
