Starting slowly, globally unnoticed, ignored.
Plans are made to add another black chapter in history.
Condemned to an ocean of shame,
A lunacy beyond my empathy.
First blood, the begining.
A civil war.

The first dead night...in Rwanda,
A nation's eye is installed.
A prophet of peace and justice.
His eyes are sharp but his hands are bound.
Hate of the past grew between two tribes,
Soon, all hell should arise.

Exterminate they shout,
The beast in man was unleashed in ecstacy of blood.
