Sam Kinison – Flesh And Power It Holds lyrics

I told you once but I will say it again
When you live the flesh it is the beginning
Of the end
It will take you in
It will spit you out
Behold the flesh and the power it holds
Passion is a poison laced with pleasure bitter sweet
One of many faces that hide deep beneath
It will take you in
It will spit you out
Behold the flesh and the power it holds
Touch, taste, breathe, consumed
Deja-vu. Already knew from the first encounter
But know I know to let go of words to speak no more
Like a wind upon your face you can't see it
But you know it's there, when beauty shows
It's ugly face, just be prepared.

Passion burns like fire carried by the wind
The end of a time, a time to begin
It builds you up one way and tears
You right back down, a time to begin
The end of a time.

Touch, taste, breathe, consumed.

6. Voice of the soul

7. To forgive is to suffer

Throughout our time a thought
Escapes us to enforce a word, no
Holding on to pain it may seem to some

The easy way to say O. K., twist your
Knife a little deeper
Words to sharp actions dark
Hide the blade of the deceiver.

Enforce the words no more, be free
Alone you might just find serenity.

To accept another day we choose
To give away another piece of life
To forgive is to suffer

Once or twice is kind
Three or four is blind
It is not the end yet a way to begin
The power of words both good and bad.
