    We lay the night in anguish, snakes drawn out by the tide
    The compass of decision falls always on one side
    But many went before us, and still the cries are clear
    There is no beauty here, just the stench of wine and beer
    We save no souls
    We break no promises
    We can do nothing more than move on headlong through the gloom
    The thorn between our lips is the missionaries tune
    Men with open arms turn their faces half away
    Observe as we approach that we have not come to save
    We stand as thick as vines though the fruit is torn away
    There is no beauty here, friends, just death and dark decay



    the damnation of the unconnected......

    Great song.

    Hear you on the un-connectedness, bro.

    I blame it on solar flares.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
