7 Easy Smiles ( A Weapon of Prayer)

Updated on June 10, 2015

A man does not choose to be a songwriter, poet, or a philosopher; no more than he chooses to be an Elephant, or a maggot.

Let peace be in my flesh
When men shout and look in my direction
making evil words to cut like jagged stones
When I am weak and weary and quick to anger
When my only desire is to pluck out their eyes
leaving them to grope aimlessly in the dark fearing my return.
should I capture them once again and slowly peel back their skin
giving them a new ambition and new words to speak
while making unusual sounds
Yes,let peace be in my flesh
and let the sound of men shouting evil words be as the sound of dogs barking

Let peace be in my spirit
When time has turned to ashes and dust
my bright eyes and 7 Easy Smiles
with phone numbers disconnected and no forwarding address
When once familiar places sit as vacant lots
burned out buildings
and former dwellings inhabited now by indifferent strangers
When songs once new that gave us hope for the future
now only remind us of an ever distant past

Let peace be in my spirit
and let the ashes and dust that have collected around my feet
rise up and be resurrected
That I may experience once again
every beautiful moment that passed between us
My bright eyes and 7 Easy Smiles

Without them I have no place in eternity
What is worse than an empty vessel
but a funeral urn filled with memories

Let peace
be in my flesh
Let peace
be in my spirit
Let peace be in my soul

I'm counting on you ... Jesus

About This Composition

The best I can recall, I composed this verse sometime during the years 2009-2010. I composed the music in 2012, and completed the video in 2013. The sexy female vocal used on this track is a TTS synthetic female vocal. All of the people in the video, except for 2 are dead. Obviously, I am one of the living, at least this is what I have led people to believe.
