lyrics

A thought popped into my head recently
As I wiped away another empty screen.
I wondered, “are we too designed to fail?”
Was it a question if my own mortality?
Or a realization that the things we see,
And are taught, set us up, by default,
To despise!
And it's never been a matter of differences.
This is a fear-based hate that we all know exists,
And it multiplies by their glazed-over eyes..

Tell me it's a sickness, if not our
sickening Human Nature.
Our desire to acquire always
Exceeds the inclination to recognize,
And empathize with, these lives
They so often cast aside.

And though it seemed a bit
unpleasant at the time,
I think it's still important, just to emphasize,
Our tragically accurate, yet coincidental
Correlation of ideas.
O! What a life we live while those we fear
run parallel to your own.

Tell me it's a sickness, if not our
sickening Human Nature.
Our desire to acquire always
Exceeds the inclination to recognize,
And empathize with, these lives
They so often cast aside from their thrones.
