Locked in our tunnel vision
We fight private wars.
It seems on every level
We fight only for our causes.
It's hard to see past the pride we forge for ourselves.
[A killer's kiss, the barrel of a gun,]
[A million dead or merely the heart of one.]
A million dead or merely the heart of one.
One more horrific then the other but still all useless.
[Every time something doesn't go our way,]
[It falls victim to the plague of all humanity:] all humanity:
Our senses sealed, our weapons out,
[another dead in the name of one,] in the name of one,
[in the name of one
Of one God, of one truth, of one soul, of one drug,]
one drug of one gun.
All in the name of one
We never learn... All of this in the name of one.
Whole worlds torn from the inside.
[I won't blame the sky or artificial highs;]
[I won't blame the symptom]. blame the symptom
[We are the disease, none of us are exempt,
we're all guilty. guilty] we re all guilty
[How can we sleep at night?]
When a million cries echo through our homes and perfect ears?
When a friend's heart lay bloody and we're holding the shears?
To live is to give and take, it is to bend not break.
Why can't we learn?
Why can't we let go?
