Open your eyes,
Tell me what you see in the world today,

There's racism,

discrimination,

war,

seperation,
because of diffrence,
peer pressure,
you don't want us to repeat the past,
but can't see you repeat it yourself,
you find it funny Lincoln was assignated,
you find it funny that the indians were forced to move off thier land,
open your eyes look at the world today,

can't you see,
this world is falling apart from people like you who make it be.
