Striking back for the last heart attack
First you tip the scale
Then they tip it back
This escalating trend
Will never end
If they take from you
Then you take from them

With less concern
For what is fair
To an unconsidered
Blame you bear
This escalating trend
Will never end
If they take from you
You take from them again

Waking up from a dream into another day
Never taking to heart all of the words they say
It so hard to believe if you never see
That the truth is split on the in-between
Waking up from your dream into another day
Never taking to heart all of the words they say
It so hard to believe because the truth is this
What hatred breeds you must resist

Who was the first
And who was the last
Did you count yourself
Or omit the past
This basic concept
Begins again
When your actions flow
From the hate within?

I don't understand
Why do you try
To make hatred and intolerance seem justified
I don't understand your prejudice and lies
Tear down your ignorance open your eyes

If the heart is rich
Then what you think you are
In your core beliefs
Should not become a sword
This basic concept
Is where it ends
If you close your heart
Then you begin again

I don't understand
Why do you try
To make hatred and intolerance seem justified
I don't understand your prejudice and lies
Tear down your ignorance, open your eyes

Waking from your dream state
Waking to the truth
