THEY CALL IT HUMAN NATURE

this world is no longer amused
to awaken the hate is to light a fuse
and it shall bring forth the coming muse
fire rains down mixed with ash and blood
human flesh, glass and steel replacing wood
and their cries are lost in the flood
a war of all wars is coming nigh
as the fire drops from the sky
and the millions prepare to die
this battle has been quietly raging for far too long
but what is there to be done to undue the wrong
before the last vision of peace dies in a song
the vocal chords are slashed by the blade
malice and treachery are hidden in the glade
on both sides, blood has been paid
another person has fallen away
and what more is there to say
for the sun goes down on another day
