Hate of This World

Let me tell ya ’bout…

Emily is fourteen and we haven’t seen her since yesterday.
Search Facebook and post to Twitter to see if she’s okay.
When the morning sun rises, they’ll find her body then.
The bullies were teasing her and she couldn’t take it again.


Somewhere in the night a white flag waves unnoticed,
There’s too much hate blurring the tears out of focus.
We’re all here with the same capacity to love and live
So why are we breeding hatred instead of learning to forgive?

I’m here to check in because I’m a danger to myself.
The hate of this world is strong, can’t put my heart on a shelf.
I want the pain of my reality to end, but the only way I know how
Is to find some kind of way to fuckin’ take myself out.

Let me tell ya ’bout…

Chris hasn’t been himself lately, let’s hope he’s alright.
You’ll see him in school tomorrow putting up a fight.
Against his own demons, though, while classmates catch bullets.
It’s a grasp for attention fomenting his hatred to the fullest.

That’s the way of the world now, making sure others pay
For the wrong in our own lives; no responsibility today.
We’re all created equal, here to claim our birthright
Of unconditional love and oneness. Instead, we’d rather fight.

I’m here to check in because I’m a danger to myself.
The hate of this world is strong, can’t put my heart on a shelf.
I want the pain of my reality to end, but the only way I know how
Is to find some kind of way to fuckin’ take myself out.

Let me tell ya ’bout…

Shots fired. Officer down. Just another traffic stop.
The life of a thug exchanged for the death of a cop.
He wasn’t going to jail, or even getting a citation.
Just a welfare check by a hero, rewarded through devastation.

Pickup a gun
Pull the trigger
Take a life
Prove you’re right
Now, you’ve won

We’ve got but one life to live, and we do it in fear.
We worry too much about the things we don’t have here,
Instead of having concern for whatever we can give.
Nothing to give is no way to live…

I’m here to check in because I’m a danger to myself.
The hate of this world is strong, can’t put my heart on a shelf.
I want the pain of my reality to end, but the only way I know how
Is to find some kind of way to fuckin’ take myself out.
