Opinion

  • Right before your eyes witness the travesty
    The perpetrators of the crime are simply walking away
    How the defenders of justice keep falling,
    And again, and again, and again, and again you know

    That no one can deny
    The horrors of our age
    The puppets' intricate lies will never wash them away
    They can't distract us from from all that's appalling
    Again, and again, and again, and again

    Are you blind? are you cold? how can you say

    You don't have an opinion
    And that you'll give me a reason
    That there is nothing left worth believing
    In this world that we're living in

    (Oh) well I have an opinion
    Oh that there is always a reason
    And their lies aren't worth believing
    We have to show we're not giving in (no)

    The wicked can't disguise their motives anyway
    It's the ultimate crime when we look the other way
    And sit compliant while the devils keep stalling
    Again, and again, and again, and again

    You cannot justify your perfect apathy
    Cast aside your indifference
    Throw it away and hear the voices of innocents calling
    Again, and again, and again, and again

    Are you blind? don't you know? how can you say

    You don't have an opinion
    And that you'll give me a reason
    That there is nothing left worth believing
    In this world that we're living in
    (Oh) well I have an opinion
    Oh that there is always a reason
    And their lies aren't worth believing
    We have to show we're not giving in (no)

    Oh you've got to fight for it
    Don't let the villainous ones decide
    How we define ourselves
    And you profess to know
    That ignorance is bliss
    Now do you want to let them decide
    Whether we're alive or dead

    You don't have an opinion
    And that you'll give me a reason
    That there is nothing left worth believing
    In this world that we're living in
    (Oh) well I have an opinion
    Oh that there is always a reason
    And their lies aren't worth believing
    We have to show we're not giving in (no)

    You don't have an opinion
    And that you'll give me a reason
    That there is nothing left worth believing
    In this world that we're living in
    (Oh) well I have an opinion
    Oh that there is always a reason
    And their lies aren't worth believing
    We have to show we're not giving in (no) Writer/s: DAVID DRAIMAN, GENO LENARDO
