Circle of hate

Peace has become an impossible dream.
Destroyed by the scum of the Muslim extreme.

As a nation we squeeze triggers of fate.
A cycle that spins a circle of hate.

I cry out to the world and ask, what have we done?
Why must we live by the way of the gun?

The "War on Terror" a clever disguise.
For those who are eager to hate and despise.

Arab children drown young in rivers of blood.
Their small corpses sink deep through thin layers of mud.

I cry out to the world and ask what have we done.
Why must we live by the way of the gun?

Revenge! Revenge!
Dressed pretty in white.
A reason to die with the purpose to fight.

Is our right to snuff out a life?
To take it away with a gun or a knife.

I cry out to the world and ask what have we done.
Why must we live by the way of the gun?
