What happened
how did you come to this
did no one ever love you

A child born into chaos
raised in a culture of hate
read only one book

Bestial faced clerics
spewing twisted words
that no prophet would sanction

Fed on a diet of loathing
for places and people
they will never know

Hidden behind
blacker than blackest veils
belts and vests assembled to kill

What paradise do you think awaits
when you’re in pieces
and drenched in blood

The problem with the world today is that fools and fanatics are so certain of themselves.

I think MC, the problem isn't just fools and fanatics, it's that there is a majority of human beings who are passive.  they are willing to be led by whoever, whatever wins. to whereever.
