lyrics

Hate driven by hate; without reason, without end
Pain on top of pain; damage that may not mend

The day will come when we will sing of distant past
Through visions we have seen what may become our future
If we could only stop feeding ourselves on hatred
We may discover that there’s more to life than death

Deep within all of us there rings a sacred sound
It beckons all of us to discover common ground
Our world is changing, if that makes you see red
Then hey, why don’t you just go bomb a country?

Evolve or be left behind

A man who looks newsworthy told me just the other day
We’re under attack again somewhere, somehow, so bombs away
Outsider, outsider, he comes to take your life!
What’s worse he doesn’t look or speak or live or pray like you
But still he prays, despite your hate
He prays for you and the rest of the world
If you don’t like it, then why don’t you just go bomb a country?

Look in my eyes, what do you see?
Nothing more than the insurmountable face of your enemy
Take a look at yourself through the eyes of the world
What will you be when all else is gone?
When there’s nothing left to lose
When there’s no one left to kill, take a look at yourself

Time is running out, ticking away, like a fuse burning down
Your fate will circle around, chase you down, seeking you out
When there’s nothing left to lose
When there’s no one left to kill
Look at yourself and see death looking back at you
