    CAN YOU TELL ME WHY
    WITH SO MUCH PAIN
    HOW WE CAN JUSTIFY
    WITHOUT SHAKING OUR HEADS IN DISDAIN
    SITTING HERE DOING NOTHING EACH AND EVERY DAY
    CRYING IN FALLING RAIN
    WELL THIS IS WHAT I HAVE TO SAY
    THE WORLD IS BLEEDING AND DYING EACH AND EVERY MOMENT
    CLAIMING "WE'RE DEFENDING DEMOCRACY"
    EACH AND EVERY PERSON IS SLOWLY LOSING THEIR FREEDOM
    BECAUSE WE'RE ABUSIVE AND WE NEGLECT, SEE THE SYMPTOMS
    CAN YOU SEE WHAT THE TRUE ISSUE IS
    PERHAPS I'VE NEVER EXPERIENCED A LOT OF PAIN
    BUT I CAN FEEL PAIN JUST BY OPENING MY EYES
    THINKING ABOUT OTHERS, USING MY BRAIN
    USING MY EARS HEARING PAINFUL CRIES
    DO YOU RALIZE WHAT WE'VE DONE
    I'M ASHAMED TO SEE THE NEWS
    TO LOOK AT THE CORPSES AND THE DESTRUCTION
    WE'RE TURNING INTO SAVAGES, I'M NOT AMUSED
    I HAVE SO MUCH ANGER FOR WHAT WE'VE DONE
    STARTING A WAR THAT'S BARELY MAKING A DIFFERENCE
    EXCEPT I HAVE THIS FEELING IT'S JUST BEGUN
    I WISH WE COULD SEE PEACE AND GOODNESS
    SPENDING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, A VERY LARGE SUM
    IT'S JUST STARTING TO GET RIDICULOUS
    SO PLEASE, STAND UP FOR WHAT'S RIGHT
    OPEN UP AND SEE TOWARD THE LIGHT!

    ONE_LOVE

    We've been feeling this way for years and years...so your pain is felt by many and the first step is to pull together collectively.
    I really like the way you laid this out...thanks for sharing

    All the death, many of whom are so young, and the thing is, more will die in this never ending war, I liked the way you brought this.
