As I travel to Elysium, there's a lesson that I've learned
Benny Franklin got it right as rain: "penny saved's a penny earned"

Masterpieces? Dime a Dozen
Pay for givin'?
Ask your Hazzan!

Boatman's got a mouth to feed,
Taint extortion; that ain't greed

There's no remedy, for my chemistry, but the wait. Yes, this weight makes me strong

Black eyes, fat lips you're so quick on your feet
Black eyes, fat lips- you won't admit defeat...
It don't mean you won- it don't mean you're skinny
It don't mean you can fight, but you sure gotta plenty
Now it’s time to trade you bow for blow….

Well, there's some vanity in insanity, but the perks, they don't last very long

As I wander through the Promised Land,
On a tired and beaten road
There's a Starr that stops me in my tracks
Just to help me with my load

And he says

“There are many men today who are born with hearts made of stone,
If you find your way to Jerusalem seek thee stone with a heart made of gold
If you find your way to Jerusalem seek thee stone with a heart made of gold”

There a Kingdom will come when we all heed the son(sun) of a King who born on the throne

And we'll all sing along to his magnificent song when a rhyme fits the time to a tone...

Well, If to you it's a drone, you just leave it alone, but for me, it's the place to call home...

The Middlemen gave feedback to WalaWalaWala for “The Plight of Damascus”:
Very dark song! I like it though, especially the change up in the middle from hard rock to blues and back again.

Cool use of double entendre as well...

Thanks! This one was written over a period of several years, and has gone through a number of variations. There was an acoustic version at one point that was pretty cool as well.

Thanks again,

-Shoham (singer, WalaWalaWala)
