I hear that voice calling once again
with visions of yesteryear and the rivers of blood they shed
The times have changed but I'm steadfast
For a reign of terror the outcasts
will be used against themselves
through ignorance and lies
And so in hate my numbers grow
And soon all the world will know
A twisted universal mind
A mind like mine

Go back to a time when I was young
A father tells an only son
"You are the chosen one"
And as I grew so did my hate
To cleanse the land became my fate
I became the gun

But when the child grows
knowing only what it's told,
then the man can learn
only as history unfolds
The roots of hatred we don't always see
and so are left to grow

Fear begins in one's center
and when allowed to flow
Will cast ripples upon still waters
Destroying all it knows
The disenfranchised will brutalize
those who are not the same
The immigrants and infidels
will be the pawns in their game
And they will use you against yourselves
through ignorance and lies

Hear that voice once again
Tie the borders, we need some order, take a stand
So the politicians reach the white man
with loaded words, a foot on the Bible and a rifle in their hands

"I hold a vision of a pure and incontrovertible future.
I am the dream that must be made real."

Return to a time when you were young
When love lit your way
And all your troubles amounted to none
But who could, who could stay?
But still do we really ever understand
how we can love the child, but crucify the man?
And do we ever really see
that "I could have been him and he could have been me?"

"When I grow up, I hope the world will be free of hunger and suffering.
And once we make people happy, we make a difference in their lives.
There are some times I feel sad and angry at the pain in the world,
but I want to see it become a better place."

Now listen...
Remember a time when you were young
When love cradled the day
And you did not know the difference between right or wrong
So who led, who led the way?
Now will you be the voice of reason when there's none?
So who will, who will sing its song?
Who will? Who will?

I will
