Divided We Fall

we all want a life of peace
and I would argue that it's the same vision
yet we let this power struggle divide us
following views that don't reflect who we are
how can a person I call friend,
support a man who hates my skin?
yeah I get it
too many sheep and not enough thinkers
hard to believe that people just follow
another life dead so we just accept
did you know a kid today became a hero?
all it cost him was his life
accept that it's just the way things are
it's not like we have no say in the matter
but our one voice gets wasted voting in crooks
we love our world so much
then why do we sit back as it rots?
you can see the weather changing
the species fleeting
it's sneaking up sooner than you thought
but instead of care about the real issues
we fight over how we think others should live
we fight over what we think others should believe
like that shit will matter when we're all dead
I know, no one likes to hear politics
but it's the ignorant that will kill us all
people get all gitty over a sells man
selling us posion and calling it the cure
how I see it
we only have a few great moments in time
and we're wasting this one  
a chance to show we can swim in turbulence
instead I fear we will sink
drowned by our own created oblivion
