BENO

First you are their lookout
That gets you in the door
Then they give you little jobs
To build the trust some more

They tell you that you're family
And you are one of them
They give you lots of money
And treat you as a friend

But once you start the dealing
You're trapped inside the hell
It punishes and pains you but
There's no one you can tell

It escalates to shootings
And violent gangland feuds
Blood in, blood out, their motto
So evil and so crude

Your life's now changed forever
With enemies all round
You cannot sleep at all at night
Listening for each sound

You end up in a prison
You lose your kids and wife
Fighting for survival and
Contemplating life

Regretting bad decisions
Ignoring good advice
You chose the path of no return
And now you pay the price

The Dark Road (Pay the price) - (c) BENO 2019

Chorus & Verse 1

Another night in Idlib
Explosions everywhere
People look in disbelief
All they do is stare

Kids they run and scream in fear
Just fighting to survive
Parents don't know which is worse
Being dead or being alive

Russian jets scream overhead
Targeting their prey
Murdering civilians
And causing disarray

The schools, The homes, The hospitals
All blown to smithereens
Innocent civilians
Pursued by the regime

Repeat Chorus:

Trapped beneath apartment blocks
Maimed and left to die
Blown to bits by f***king bombs
That rain down from the sky

Another night in Idlib
Another hundred dead
Another f**king evil war
When will it ever end

Repeat Chorus:

Another Night in Idlib - (c) BENO 2020

She raised you in a loving way
And taught you right from wrong
The rules of life, The do's and don'ts
She tried to make you strong

Don't smoke, No Drink, Say no to drugs
She engraved in your mind
She tried to do, What's best for you
And hoped you'd turn out fine

So now you've grown, The teenage years
You think you are a man
Your gang of friends, are deep in crime
It's where this all began

You follow them, down this dark road
Your life's now in decay
Doing things you know are wrong
And blind to judgement day

Dealing drugs and stealing cars
Anti social crime
You're on the path, of no return
And running out of time

You finally get convicted and
You're locked up in a cell
Wondering where it all went wrong
Haunted in this hell

You're crying for your Mother
You're missing her advice
Alone, Afraid, In this dark cell
You have to pay the price

I'm standing at the corner shop
Just looking at the sky
A group of thugs in tracksuits
Shout out as they go by

They stare and try intimidate
Cos that is all they know
Just idiots in uniform
Putting on their show

CHORUS:
We're sick of all their actions
We're sick of all the fights
We're sick of all the shit they do
IT'S SUCH A WASTE OF LIFE

Acting like they're hard men
That couldn't give a f**k
Be better if they'd stayed in school
And learned to read a book

They're macho when together
But cowards on their own
Clueless, Mindless morons
Cry out when they're alone

Repeat Chorus

What did their parents teach them?
Why are they so deluded?
These kids today, show no respect
THEY ACT SO F**KING STUPID

What sort of life awaits them
I bet it won't be great
They'd better get their life on track
Before it is too late

Repeat Chorus x 2

Waste of Life (C) BENO 2020

The aeroplanes are grounded
And the sky is now smog free
The birds are singing in the trees
There's more fish in the sea

We've been choking up the planet
Taking more than what we need
It's this system that we live by
And its built on power and greed

Is this Mother Natures message
To stop exploiting land
To cherish her resources
To make us understand

The air pollution dropped in China
Venice rivers once more clear
Dublin's A&Es are empty
Cos there's no-one on the beer

Now the animals run freely
And the bees are in full flight
Yet it took a lethal virus
To make us see the light.

It's a message from the universe
To tell us we must cease
To start respecting what we have
And learn to live in peace

COVID19 - BENO 2020

The oil blackened sky
Where the birds don't fly
Down in the valley of the dead
There's no laughter, no song
Cos it's all long gone
Its just fear and death instead

Chorus:
Like a black cloud moving
Across the barren lands
They raped and they plundered
With the devil at their hand

There is no resting place
For this poisonous race
Who spread only hate and fear
The people, they sigh
The children, they cry
WE DO NOT WANT YOU HERE

Chorus

As they marched side by side
Stealing land in their stride
Killing those who oppose or resist
Then the Kurds joined as one
Every father and son
As true heroes they did enlist

Chorus

We must never desist
And we'll crush all the myths
Of the death cult that scorched the land
We will always fight on
Till this evil is gone
Evil led by the devils hand

Chorus x 2

The Devils Hand - (c) BENO 2019

Taken from her family,
Put into a home
Locked inside a padded cell
In fear and all alone

Beaten, Starved and Tortured
By nuns of Catholic faith
Forced to work, to scrub, to clean
And not get any pay

Loneliness and violence
They struggled to survive
Suppression and oppression
And nowhere they could hide

They cried alone in those dark cells
Denied their education
Bitter, Angry, Full of rage
Consumed by the frustration

They fought the church for all those years
And then the Irish nation
But in the end the women they
Got f**k all compensation

Those laundries of the catholic church
Held Mothers, Daughters, Wives
Those laundries and the Irish state
Destroyed the women's lives

The Laundries - (C) BENO

Strolling by the seaside
There's rubbish on the beach
Plastic littered up and down
It really makes me sick

The anger and annoyance
I feel it build inside
What is it with these people ?
Why have they got no pride ?

No care for land or sea or sky
No care for other users
They've no respect for anyone
Just selfish fxxxing losers

There's dog shit in the sand dunes
There's beer cans everywhere
Plastic bags wedged in the grass
Why don't they fxxxing care ?

There's needles scattered all around
Cigarettes discarded
Straws and bottles, Plastic nets
The place is just bombarded

It's time they got a schooling
And learned some self respect
CLEAN UP ALL YOUR fxxxING TRASH
INSPECT, COLLECT, PROTECT.
