Including myself there are things going on in this world that we all try to hide from.

Not all is black and white

You must see the grey

Look under the carpet of the world

For fuck sake open those heavy eyes


See the pain in the child's eyes

Watch him die over and over

Look at the forest burn

See the destruction of life


Watch that basted smack his wife

With no remorse in his eyes


`See her wrists bleed

For there was no one to save her

Only burning pain caused by the grey


Watch the family watch their mother die

Die from evil cancer


These are the things you don't want to see

Things, which go on all around 


They are the grey not the black

Or the white

So open your fucking heavy eyes

Breath in the grey 

Understand why we all live only to die.
