Sacrifice your security
To please an imperfect god
Review your sanity
To emphasize your plan
Why do you escape the way you do,
When you know the route already?

A form of gunpoint
Is our only form of communication
Sacrifice the love for your son
For a dollar value
Why do you criticize the way they live,
When all you are is another flavor?

Scrutinize society
Do you remember the name
Of the gods you followed?
The trade they offered?
Why do emphasize the lack of empathy,
When you refuse to empathize?

Discriminating shadows
Actors controlled
Sans their master
Sad how no one controls us--
Not even ourselves
If all the love in the world
Had a dollar amount...
"All that is solid
Would melt into air."
