One being rises to power
their ego is fed
this history repeats itself
the same reason for bloodshed

humans compete
we are liars; we are rats
any socially deprived,
you're who we should ask.

You've seen us rattle,
you've seen under our face
from behind your thick glass
what do i crave?

What do you think

When you look into my lies
Do you see pure human,
Do you see all these lies?

For if i rise to power
my morals will set loose
We are all made up of lies,
and that's our only truth.

The author's comments:
i wrote this in history class, after listening to my teacher lecture about another war. to me, it sounds like they all boil down to the same reasons.
