Sitting in the class
Time refuses to pass
Fifteen minutes in
we only just begin

Does it really matter?
What you do or don’t believe
Even if you succeed
You may or may not receive

Stunned by the sight
Of a man on a cross
Think of all the fights
And think of all the loss

Ponder all the sins
You probably did commit
And then you realize
That you just don’t give a s***

In this life
There’s nothing to prepare
You, for the sound of a gun
Or the cut of a knife

From another human being
Who’s just trying to survive?
You finally start seeing
How humans began to thrive
