Immorality

Immorality engulfs every facade of society
As death fills us with the lust of tragedy.
We watch murder on the screens of white,
We scream for more – in the ecstasy of delight!

The love of evil is our political obsession,
Leaving those to die at the hand of repression
Upon the streets in pain and agony;
We call it our new peaceful serenity!

So why stop the butchers from ripping the limbs
Off the children they eat with their earthly sin;
After all, the nation enjoys their morbid transgressions,
Society rings out to indulge in their sickened obsessions!

The children are flooded with scenes of horror,
Learning that death is what to adore.
They seek to murder in the name of fun,
Calling it out in the name of love!

We are raising a people built for war
That only knows death and tragedy galore.
Love no longer lives within their minds;
They only seek to snatch the next gentle life.

Whoa to the days that this future will bring
As all they will know is that mutilation is serene.
All because we sat idle in silence
Refusing to lift our voices against violence.

This now plagues every facade of humanity,
And it is embedded in our deepest darkest memories;
The damage is done to the point past destruction,
We will pay the penalty for our depraved obsessions.
