Is This It?
Look how Nation fights Nation
See the fury in their eyes;
Hear how people groan in pain,
See how happily their assailants sings;
Behold how morals extirpate,
That we call modernity
Little regard we hold for life;
Taking it is not too hard
What about the Word to the first man,
That His creation works we'll keep?
What about the promises of love
And brotherhood that we swore,
Is this it?
