The Truth Won't Save You Now

Oh, Mrs. O....
You really have a way with words...
The truth won't save you now
oh oh oh
The sky is falling down
oh oh oh
Watch the vultures count the hours
April trains May bring strange showers
Oh Mrs. O,
We all know
the world is really all in Love!
and Oh Mrs O
Will you leave us hanging now that we are grown up and old?

Will you kill me if I say "I told you so"
We All Know
There's No Winter and
No Santa Claus

And Yes Virginia
All because
The Truth Won't Save You Now
oh oh oh
The sky is falling down
oh oh oh
Everything they ever told us
Shakes our Faith and
Breaks their promise
But you can stop the truth from leaking
If you never stop believing......

My First Collaboration

Wendie and Jesse Collaboration
My Pal Jesse sent me this mask as a blank canvas and I have finally painted it. It still needs a little touching up but I wanted to share it with you all.
Painted on the mask is the Mexica symbol Olin or Movement. The two colors, one light one dark, are important as Olin combines the humanity of the Sun and the movement of the Earth.
