Society’s Dead



I read a bit, I watch the news
I see their points, I get their views
I know agenda sets the clues
And people hold opinions they didn’t choose

I read between official lines
I see where deception’s guide-light shines
I know the facts were never mine
And watch how truth and lies entwine

I read the warnings at the gate
I see their cause, incite to hate
I know that hope will come too late
And nothing is ever left to fate

I read the print, I shed a tear
I see their hate, and feel their fear
I know the path is never clear
And know it’s pain they want to hear

I read the signs, I watch what’s said
I see the storm, that’s up ahead
I know how easily sheep are led
And fear the worst, society’s dead
