The question they keep asking me
How can one so young be so bitter and angry?
Well, the answer is plain to see .
Maybe if they weren't so blind they'd see what I see.
I see the homeless livin' out on the street.
On every corner they're asking for money.
I try to help them whenever I can.
But sometimes I can't afford to help myself.
I see diseases and modern plagues of our times.
The greed of our leaders has made them blind
To our problems.
They spend millions overseas.
People right here are fightin' wars everyday.
I see the whites that hate the blacks.
Blacks against the Jews, race against religion
And the're all too blind to see.
When we fight each other it puts all of them at ease.
It keeps us so busy, so they can do what they please.
Election time comes and they're out for votes.
That's when you see and hear from them the most.
This is what they're calling a democracy.
That's just another word for hypocrisy.
We keep fallin' for the bait.
When we realize, it's always too late.
I see the whites that hate the blacks
Blacks that hate the Jews, brother against brother.
And they're all to blind to see.
As the rich get richer, the poor goin' hungry.
I've seen the toll it takes on the workingman's family.
Education system that's obsolete.
Can't hold a kid's interest or keep 'em off the street.
See a father's fear, hear a mother's cry.
What kind of a nation lets their children die?
Government's corrupt and full of red tape.
Then you're gonna ask me why I hate.
Why don't you open up your eyes so you can see?
Open up your ears so you can hear.
Take a look around and you will find.
Take a look around and you will find out why.
