we dream of ways to break these iron bars
we dream of black nights without moon or stars
we dream of tunnels and of sleeping guards
we dream of blackouts in the prison yard
.
heartbroken, we found
(a gleam of hope)
harken to the sound,
(a whistle blows)
heaven sent reply,
(however small)
evidence of life
(beyond these walls)
born and bred
(in this machine)
wardens dread
(to see us dream)
we hold tight
(to legends of)
real life,
(the way it was before)
.
we dream of jailers throwing down their arms
we dream of open gates and no alarms
.
we dream of ways to break these iron bars
we dream of black nights without moon or stars
we dream of ways to break these iron bars
we dream of black nights without moon or stars
we dream of ways to break these iron bars
we dream of black nights without moon or stars
heartbroken, we found
(a gleam of hope)
harken to the sound,
(a whistle blows)
heaven sent reply,
(however small)
evidence of life
(beyond these walls)
born and bred
(in this machine)
wardens dread
(to see us dream)
we hold tight
(to legends of)
real life,
(the way it was before)

look to the day the earth will shake
these weathered walls will fall away
.
look to the day the earth will shake
these weathered walls will fall away
.
look to the day the earth will shake
these weathered walls will fall away
.
look to the day the earth will shake
these weathered walls will fall away

Oh oh people of the earth, listen to the warning the seer he said
Beware the storm that gathers here, listen to the wise man
...
From mother's love is the son estranged, married his own his precious gain
The earth will shake in two will break, and death all round will be your dowry
.
Oh oh people of the earth, listen to the warning the seer he said
For those who hear and mark my words, Listen to the good plan
Oh oh oh oh, and two by two, my human zoo, (they'll be)
Running for to come, running for to come, out of the rain
...
Ah people can you hear me?
And now I know, and now I know
And now I know, and now I know
That you can hear me
And now I know and now I know
And now I know now I know
Now I know, now I know
Now I know, now I know
Now I know The earth will shake, in two will break
...
Now I know, now I know
Now I know, now I know
Now I know, now I know
Now I know, now I know
Now I know, now I know
Now I know
Wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo
.
Listen to the wise, listen to the wise, listen to the wise
Listen to the wise, listen to the wise, man
La, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la
La, la
La, la
Come here, I hear you
Come here, I hear you
Come here, I hear you
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
...
Listen to the man, listen to the man, listen to the man, listen to the mad man
God gave you grace to purge this place
And peace all around may be your fortune
Oh oh children of the land, love is still the answer take my hand
The vision fades a voice I hear, listen to the madman!
But still I fear and still I dare not, laugh at the madman!

A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever.

The untangling of the fabrications in this case is a thing of beauty, indeed.

Nifong's bus rolls inexorably towards a spike strip in the road. Authorities sit in wait beyond that point.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks Liestoppers

For any that missed it,the follow was contributed by some that posted ideas at the Liestopper Discussion Board;

Hckychx = Got DNA?
Neonknightmare = Precious Cargo


Of course Baldo - I think he's some relative of a crooked mayor in Chicago - rigged the voting booth and somehow broke a tie that should have put another contribution in the picture!

Krddurham = Don’t laugh…you’re next!

That actually looks like something Mikey would put on the bus, as he smirks!

The rumors of that the bumper sticker voting was rigged were spread by a Fry Cook over in Raleigh.

And Krddurham, Don’t laugh…you’re next!

Baldo~

If you even joke about that again, I’m fleeing to Mexico! Once I’m out of the country I’ll call and see what’s up. Actually…you don’t want me – I didn’t graduate from Duke. I’m a good guy…right? RIGHT?

Need to revise Mikey's forehead, enlarging it enough to add a distinctive mole.
