lyrics

Well I saw the news again
more senseless people doing senseless things
for their own selfish reasons
assuming that violence and rage are the answers
that one day will set them all free

Will they one day realize
the power of balance and peace
or will they keep destroying
in hopes of creating something

I experience a riot inside of me now
and I express it with the stroke of this pen
not with the harming of others who happen to live here
not with riot shields raised and not with guns aiming ahead

but with the freedom i have
to express my disdain
for the things that we do as so called "human beings"

where's your regard for living things
to respond to a death with a death, now does that make any sense?
It would be so fucking easy
just to love if we just tried to try a little harder again

I experience a riot inside of me now
and I express it with the stroke of this pen
not with the harming of others who happen to live here
not with riot shields raised and not with guns aiming ahead

but with the freedom, i have
to express my disdain
for the things that we do as so called "human beings"
