Emotional Blocks

Emotional Blocks within the male psyche
perpetuated by the patriarchy
stumbling boys in grown up clothes
try to hide it, but it shows
in every bomb that hits the ground
and every sharp and vicious sound
in every stream thats choked and brown
and all the famine thats around;
They cry in pain these boys of ours
whilst killing off all the flowers
they cannot help whats in their hearts
they cannot stop it once it starts
it is a pain they cant endure
so they stifle what is pure
and when the game they play is over
and the shooting is all done
we wont be left in fields of clover
for the bastards will have won.
