    my eyes see light
    the prayers of man
    are answered at the speed of life--

    my heart pumps blue
    my blood has never seen the shining--
    light of day

    hello hello hello hello
    hello hello hello hello
    hello hello hello hello
    hello hello hello hello

    all the sleeping
    is outrageous--
    all the heartache--
    instantaneous
    all the outrage--
    **** is dangerous--
    all the killings
    its contagious....
    ~
    my soul gets sad
    the ails of all are answered by the sight of death
    my eyes get weak
    the strong survive but
    earth's been promised
    to the meek

    hello hello hello hello
    hello hello hello hello
    hello hello hello hello
    hello hello hello hello
    ~
    all the bloodshed
    gets me angered
    the corruption
    seems to strangle--
    child abductions
    **** IS CRAZY!!!!!
    we need judgement
    were endangered!!!
    ~
    darkness is bliss
    the light that shines
    sickens my soul
    from lies it tells
    the dark is true
    it never fails to
    seperate the lies from truth

    my mind seems blurred
    the years of hatred
    heat the savage beast of old
    my hate grows deep
    the seed is planted--
    set and sowed and set to grow--

    hello hello hello hello
    hello hello hello hello
    hello hello hello hello
    hello hello hello hello

    (wake up y'all)
