Oh, I hear what you say, but I’m not listening to your disrespect
Your voice is a voice with a baseless anger
You think you’re deserving?
An argument is won with actions, not words
You choose to hate first, and come out swinging
I don’t care, about your worthless opinion
You’re selling hate and fighting fire with gasoline
You can’t expect everyone to conform
If the tables were turned, what would you do?
You want a handout?
Nothing worth something is ever free
You want acknowledgement?
You fight just to fight because you disagree
But that’s the last time
You want to be the spark that ignites the flame
And burns everything down
You can’t see eye to eye or compromise
You just take what you want
I’m so sick of this trophy generation
You are so blind to the world, yet you demand change
But when the time comes to act you seem to face away
So don’t lecture me
When you’re too stuck in your ways to see what’s right anymore
How did we get here?
Can you see the writing on the walls?
We’re slowly selling our morals for convenience sake
Can we turn this around?
Teach others the value of compromise and sacrifice
To go on living for the good of many, not the few
It won’t mean anything if we can’t agree
Can we just see past ourselves?
This world
This life
Is the only one we’ve got


from Beneath The Surface, released April 15, 2016
