"Eye for an eye" as written by and Norman/strong Whitfield....
When I see the rage is building
And I know there's nothing stopping
Stopping me from changing into
What it is almost pure

When I'm doing with what I'm doing
I always take it all so I
Continue in this fashion
And continue to be free

Mother never told me to
Respect those that I do not like
Why should I be forced to hurt?
And take the fucking blame

Why are you ignoring me?
Where will I get morals from?
Mother never taught me
And I don't know why

Destroy the ones that you love
Crush all memories of them
Appreciate the power that you have and that you wield
It's a game of life, play to learn
Push in down deep inside
Time to create more than you could
Ever want

Only when the world has stopped
Could you be the only one?
Another day another time
That I've never known

When I see humanity
Taking all of the life from me
I wonder why we bother at all

Unlock the door
Pray it's finally over
Game on
Settle down
Powerless to stop
Freedom is the one you seek
Tell me why you must be free
Listen to this fuckin' crap!

This is what you want to be?
Tell me what you really mean
Freedom is the only way to start again

I swear there's no reality
You've taken more then you deserve
But no one is impervious

When I see the rage is building
And I know there's nothing stopping
Stopping me from changing into
What it is almost pure

When I'm doing with what I'm doing
I always take it all so I
Continue in this fashion
And continue to be free

Mother never told me to
Respect those that you do not like
Why should I be forced to hurt?
And take the fucking blame

The world of beauty and of order is disappearing before me

I've taken lives
In your next life
Eye for an eye
Just like Judas
Eye for an eye
I'm surrounded
Burn all the dead
It's what is deep inside

Worship the system
That you're following

Fuck your religion
You follow like sheep

I see the way forward
You see nothing
Time to say fuck it
I'm my own man

Destroy the ones that you love
Crush all memories of them
Appreciate the power that you have and that you wield
It's a game of life, play to learn
Push in down deep inside
Time to create more than you could
Ever want

Only when the world has stopped
Could you be the only one?
Another day another time
That I've never known

When I see humanity
Taking all of the life from me

Fuck this stupid shitty world
