"Blackwood" as written by and Dustin Chad Davidson Brent Gerald Rambler....
There is no hope for me, at least I know
I know what I believe, and now I see
No longer will we be fooled, you say
There is no hope for me, at least I know
I know what I believe, and now I see
No longer will we be fooled

White skin, white teeth, black heart, black lungs
Sleeping on your stacks of millions
As your followers struggle to overcome, overcome
Sickness, poverty, heartbreak
Hatred are dealt with every day
You can't relate
You can't remember a single name
Stare into a screen before you'll look them in the eyes
You'll never change a life until you know
Everything you say sounds like a lie
Blessed by the hands of God
Or cursed by the tongue of the devil
Who do you serve?

No more ignorance, no more complacency
Behind your white skin and white teeth
Lies a heart so black it makes the abyss look bright
You say, you say, there is no hope for me

If a rich man can't get into heaven, where will you dwell
If a rich man can't ascend, will I see you in hell
You say, there is no hope for me, at least I know
I know what I believe, and now I see
No longer will we be fooled, you say
There is no hope for me, at least I know
I know what I believe, and now I see
No longer will we be fooled

    QuestionWho is this song addressed to?

    I get the feeling that they are directing this song to a particular individual, but I am unsure who. A politician? A religious leader? Other?
