There's a big, empty space where you left our race.

It would help if I could see your face

to know that somewhere there's somebody to teach me.

and end up shooting the lovers?

Sister and a daughter it's an endless slaughter

We're only doing what we're taught

I'm begging on my knees.

I'm begging you to teach me, please.

I'm sick and tired of being alive in a day

where anger is all the rage.

Can somebody help me turn the page

read something else for a change?

Being scientific taught us to hate

to discriminate, vacate faith.

Well that lying learned us how to behave

to believe everything indiscriminately.
