The System

Blue Horizontal Line


Busily, busily, they work away,
Trying to change the system with statistical charts,
Change the system, not the heart:
If the heart is wrong, no system will work,
And if the heart is right, any system will work,
But they are too busy to recognize the obvious.
And life slips by misunderstood.

The heart, the heart, thatís the rock of trust,
Upon which the churches and all hopes are founded,.
If warmed hearts can meet some things transcending,
Then all things are close to being mended,
But if the trust you need is not there,
No task is going anywhere.
