Survival 02:22
You make your boundAries, you make your trench in the sand, you say one race is the way forward, more narrow minded fear of what you don’t understand, I’ve got a million and one things to say starting with fuck you, Confusion is the only way to sum you up, lost causes with no direction, This intolerance is pointless, misguided outlooks, judgement with no cause, I can’t hold my tongue, I wish we were all the same, A WISH FOR UNITY, would make it easier to hide my fuckIn’ shame, You don’t fool me, I can’t undersTand you racists, my one belief is it's a front and you’rE the fakes, One track minds with no will for acceptance makes me sick we share the same air, You make your holes in society, we may look the same but you don’t fool me, Sometimes I wish we were all the same, would make it easier to hide my fuckIn’ shame.
I Hope 01:06
Where the fuck have you been? You were gone like the dust in the wind, Let me tell you, you won’t believe the things I’ve seen, A wall of people all standing in line, tell me your story, my scars tell mine, Trenches look like the war is lost, all my friends gave their all but at the highest cost, Bled for something someone else believed, this war is pointless but it’s hard to see, My thoughts are racing faster than these bullets flying by, Enough courage to shoot when it matters most, or turn in fear and close my eyes, My shoulders can’t carry these burdens, I can barely carry my own, I’ve been trained to carry this gun, Can’t ensure that this war's won, I know they think I’m expendable, but I won’t die for this, We all sit alone on these mounds of dirt we call our Thrones, we've forgotten our place in the world, but really just disregarded the rules, We have no chains on our necks, we humble ourselves but will never forget, We can search for answers but will only find, that all this is, The blind leading the blind.
