If You Listen

I am not here to entertain you
I am not here to pacify you.
I am not here to give meaning
to your worthless, pathetic lives.
Somewhere in the depths of your reptilian brains
is the potential of your existence.

It’s not for me to save you.
It’s not for me to teach you.
But if you listen to me you may find
that I know a few things about survival.
If you listen, and you consider,
you might survive.

Recorded January, 2010

Words & Music by Wicasta Lovelace

If You Listen is the first track on a CD of music I’m putting together to accompany the novel I’m writing. The novel and CD are both titled Blood & Chartreuse.
