lyrics

Let's talk behind each others backs
Because people don't have feelings,
Well at least it sure as hell seems that way
Maybe our feelings are really the same, no difference in emotions, morals, ideas

The police, they weren't meant to fight crime
It's social control
So they can make sure that our materials are more important to us than those feelings that are real

But I believe we are all strong enough to stand on our own
And I know, I'm not the only one who is not afraid to admit it

I can only hope that ignorant hostility will one day disintegrate
All of our greed and pride will melt,
the same way I did when I looked right into your eyes
give me something to believe in
Something to hold true

And this day, ungrateful politicians will finally grow into maturity
In this way self-augmented fear will turn into acceptance of self-augmented flaws

Yes this fear, that created religions beholding genocidal policies
Columbus, Hitler, Al-Bashir, and the world keeps turning their backs to the children's screams

Teach me how to want, don't teach me decency, moral values, or to dream because
All of the things that make me be are based on solely what you told me

But I will forever be
inspired by things that make my heart soar
Turn my hands of greed into clenched fists of love
