lyrics

Love to Faults is Always Blind (W. Blake)

Love to faults is always blind,

Always is to joy inclin’d,

Lawless, wing’d & unconfin’d,
And breaks all chains from every mind.


Deceit to secrecy confin’d,

Lawful, cautious & refin’d,

To every thing but interest blind,

And forges fetters for the mind.

There souls of men are bought and sold,
And milk-fed Infancy for gold;
And Youth to slaughter-houses led,
And Beauty, for a bit of bread.
