An Eye For An Eye

When we fight one another, our hearts filled with hate

The ones who suffer are the ones who sit at home and wait.

And there’s always a reason, a good reason why

We’re told it’s for truth and for freedom, yes freedom to kill or to die.

Is there no denying those who are trying to poison our minds?

‘Cos an eye for an eye is making the whole world blind.

 

And the men that we follow - you are best left unheard

For your hearts are hollow just like your words.

So the fate of the many is sealed by the few

I’d bet a pound to a penny a bullet will never find you.

While the orphans and widows weep in the shadows, betrayed by humankind

And an eye for an eye is making the whole world blind.

 

“To death or glory!” – How blind can we be?

And how many children must die before we consider ourselves to be free?

 

We live in a world divided, driven by greed

Where the poor misguided deliver us children in need.

So the cries of the fallen still ring in our ears

But we’ll keep on calling ‘til somebody hears.

But who will dry the tears in the eyes of the ones they leave behind?

And an eye for an eye is making the whole world blind.

 

An eye for an eye is making the whole world blind.
