lyrics

What's wrong with these people today
The shootings and stabbings and lootings they're grabbing more headlines everyday
Just last night I watched I riot I seen the cops out on the street
With their batons and shooting folks methodical and neat

Decades of corpses in the gutters
These towns are filled with Death
How many years can this go on
Until nobody's left
Children born in smoke and fire
broken glass and more barbed wire
Ancient fights forged in their minds
killing over holy shrines
Stories worsen as they're told
Lifeless shells of 5 year olds
...and they say that peace is so close
but both sides don't know when
They're gonna break the calm
with another pipe bomb
and start it all again

When a punch in the face won't cut it
then something's not quite right
There's some serious s**t going on downtown when the fires start to light
All full of hate and anger
but cant remember why
When hearts and minds are out for blood then someone's gonna die

A woman begs for mercy it echos in the night
Their eyes are stone, their hearts are cold
They're out for blood tonight

What's wrong with these people today
The shootings and stabbings and lootings they're grabbing more headlines everyday
Just last night I watched I riot I seen the crowd swarming the street
Throwing rocks and shooting folks methodical and neat

When a punch in the face won't cut it
then something's not quite right
There's some serious s**t going on downtown when the fires start to light
All full of hate and anger
but cant remember why
When hearts and minds are out for blood then someone's gonna die

A woman begs for mercy it echos in the night
Their eyes are stone, their hearts are cold
They're out for blood tonight
