I see the world drowning in greed instead of killing off it's thieves

I see the people living in doubt, driving the cars that bring the drought

I see killers, terrorists, rapists, molesters, living from east to west, north to south

I see people so blind, focused on wealth, they can't see their destiny

 

 

I see the ones who tell the lies instead of simply telling the truth

I see the wrong envisions and feel nothing but the abuse

This world, our world, is dying inside, what happened to all it's youth?

I hope one day you can rise to liberation, my words can break the chains off of you

 

 

I see the world drowning in greed instead of killing off it's thieves

Some want to see happiness and freedom, but all I see pain and nothing in between them

I know why you bought that gun, you want the bullet in your brain

But listen to my envision, I promise you I'm not insane

Remember my words, from this day because dying is not as bad as they say

Leave this world behind, ascend from the pain

and I will take you to a brighter day
