    You say prayers on bent knees
    Asking please heal the wold
    But if you coul see what I see
    You would beg for it to end
    The only hope being we could begin again
    Because there is no antidote for the venom
    That is slowly killing the body of man
    Indifference has dug it's claws into our spirits
    We're not blind to the hatred or evil
    That has been bred into this world
    We simply don't care
    Mommy and daddy teach us that it is a creul world
    That evil is the nature of man
    and one man can't make a difference
    Just hold your head low and mind your business
    And we listen , worst yet we believe
    So when we see a woman getting her *** beat
    By her so called man
    Or an innocent at the business end of the bleu flame
    We just watch
    Stand and point and watch
    Glad that it's not us
    And when it is we wonder why noone will help
    It makes me want to reach out
    To urge you who are my family
    To take up arms against these evils.
    But what would be the point,
    Yuo don't care
    so I just wait for the end.

    That was ...

    " Indifference has dug it's claws into our spirits "

    - My eyes watered a little while reading that line -

    It makes me think of self. - How i've just
    turned the other cheek and kept it moving a few times --
    because of the few times i stopped and got involved
    it has made matters worse.

    We've ALL seen the guy who was just tryin
    to help the situation get shot - ( Scott Larock ).

    We've all become, not pacifists or cold hearted , -
    but so aware of the unpredictable essence of drama
    that we have to care about OUR OWN safety b-4
    others , IT'S SAD we can't trust each other to look out
    for each other.

    If we could destroy and rebuild it all - that would be ...

    that would be it.
