what exactly don’t you get?
we throw bombs freely and freedom is just an excuse
we throw nets to catch the eye of the innocent TV watchers
we give you readymade dreams
so you don’t work so hard at making yours come true
isn’t that wonderful?
but I have a weird feeling of helplessness mixed with fear
of this degrading world losing its temper
and while I lose my head, fundamentally ill leaders tread
in historical schemes of schism
But you know complacency deadens the soul
but do we hear the cries from the world and under
can we listen though, can we most importantly
respond and attend to those who need it most
to those who need it most
Who will lead us against the wicked witches of the west
who will terrorize the official authorities of terrorism
who will finally have the courage and strength to fight back
however you can, fight back!
Caus’ our children will blame us for being shameless
will blame us for promoting ignorance
will blame us for blaming other people and never taking a stand
and what will we stand for then?
