Don’t you lie to me, cause I’m not blind I see the
Lessons that you teach create the hate in me
I’m not scared to say that I won’t be that way
We’re all the same, but there’s always a price to pay
I don’t want to be the one to push you down and pull you up again
I don’t want to be that way
You’re falling down, you’re falling down again
It’s when you speak to me
‘Cause hates not born, you see
It’s pride you scream with bigot eyes too blind to see
Your frame of mind’s outdated
Narrow opinions faded
Would you like to meet this monster that you’ve created
Don’t you lie to me, cause I’m not blind I see
The lessons you teach create the hate in me
I’m not scared to say that I won’t be that way
We’re all the same
But there’s always a price you pay

    General CommentHeres my uber translation that i've come to bear to the children of the corn. Two people are in a relation. The man is walking home one night and sees his girl with another guy. the next day he confronts her about it and she acts like hes blind and lies to him. Maybe the girls a slut and he doesnt know.
    "Dont You lie to me cause im not blind i see the lessons that you teach."
    He doesnt wanna be with a woman like this because that means he'd be like her and he thinks shes making him seem worse.
    "I dont want to be that way, your falling down."
    He used to love her but is now angered at her and forfeits his love to her.
    She loved him maybe for his money, and nothing more and is in a religion dumping large amounts of his money to it. "Cause hates not born, you see
    It’s pride you scream with bigot eyes too blind to see".
    Because of this the man becomes furious, and is angered at everyone and is willing to do anything in a desperate attempt to release the anger. "Would you like to see this monster that you've created." BAM! theres my damn comment.
