CONVICTIONS

Convictions



Tell me

The voices inside their heads are they real?

Persuading them to do evil?

Say

The boys and

girls at their feet, terrified

And yet conviction is

Deeper and darker, the part I’ll never comprehend

No


Tell me

What makes me think I can follow them here

When their convictions are

Deeper and darker, the part I’ll never comprehend

No, a cold-blooded ghost

In their souls, I say


Take it away

Take it away

Make this intolerance change today

Take it away

Take it away

The poison that brings mankind in decay




Tell me

The principles they hold dear are they fair?

And have they done their reflections?


When their convictions are

Deeper and darker, the part I’ll never comprehend

No, a cold-blooded ghost

In their souls, I say


Take it away

Take it away

Make this intolerance change today

Take it away

Take it away

Atrocity must yield to humanity
