Take your prayers and thoughts and shove it
We made this mess, we live it
Day by day, night by night
The burning of the world never ends
So you don’t think you had an effect?
When was the last time you tried to act?
ACT – with a vote?
Or ask why?
Did you try? No, you didn’t.
Too afraid of loosing your hate?
The hate sitting in your bones
Too afraid to lose “us” vs “them”?
Afraid of the human under that skin?
Afraid of that connection?
You don’t give a fuck about all that
Or anyone but yourself
Let them die,
Let them burn
You’ve got more important things to do
Like fighting for YOUR rights
YOUR free speech
YOUR right to be loud and free
It’s YOUR gun, YOUR Ammo
And that’s alright
Cuz your rights just killed again
So cherish that hate
that blessed emotion
Keep it close so we don’t touch
And the world will burn
