The Voice of Reason




The time has come to air the Voice of Reason,

In a world gone mad, adrift on banal seas,

For all who feel that lies have had their season,

And whose Hearts Cry Out instead for Honesty,

For all the weary souls grown bored with dreaming,

Whose thirst for Beauty and for Knowledge goes unslaked,

For all who want to wake from what is dreaming,

To know what’s Real, and what is Real to embrace.

For all who’ve watched with mounting horror,

Evil’s reign upon this world grow ever-clear,

For all who’ve prayed in vain, Emancipators,

Wielding Swords of Truth and laughing without fear.”

-William Melvin “Bill” Hicks
