Cycle Of Violence

As the bombs fall
People try and crawl
Flee for their lives
Hoping to survive
This is not the way
Society in decay
Stop the bloodshed
Before all our dead

Why is it that we feel such a need?
Always have to fight and inflict misery
Reign down hell onto the innocent
Breed malice alongside contempt

March through the streets
Billowing of sheets
Caught in the wind
Bodies dead and skinned
Shrapnel in the forms
Man-made type of storms
Why so accepted?
This should be rejected

Why is it that we feel such a need?
Always have to fight and inflict misery
Reign down hell onto the innocent
Breed malice alongside contempt

Beat down the masses
Until they are ashes
Fear from the sky
Hear them scream why
All they want is life
Not be under knife
Slashed to the bone
Left to die alone

Why is it that we feel such a need
Always have to fight and inflict misery
Reign down hell onto the innocent
Breed malice alongside contempt

Hail of gunfire
Nothing to aspire
Bodies in the streets
Man is obsolete
Sight makes me sick
Like a horor flick
So much blood and gore
And there will be more

Why is it that we feel such a need
Always have to fight and inflict misery
Reign down hell onto the innocent
Breed malice alongside contempt

City is in ruin
Hate you were spewing
Genocide is back
This is so whack
We are all guilty
Without pledging fealty
Mistakes return again
So sick of this living

Why is it that we feel such a need
Always have to fight and inflict misery
Reign down hell onto the innocent
Breed malice alongside contempt

What does it achieve?
How is it what we believe?
Tell me this now
Make it a vow
Sick of the pain
As frequent as rain
Like being brain dead
Consumed by the dread
