“Conformity Popular”

Looking forward, past the sky
Prayers hitting ceilings, then dying
How long do we hold on?
How long do we hold?
I know you appreciate our business
We need help this instant but stay placed on hold
Killed daily for oil and gold
Kids dying and parents dead waiting for mercy

Different people cast out, away
They should die for refusing to say grace
God of love strike down my fellow humans
Nothing wrong with drowning my brother or sister in quicksand

Every rape is unacceptable
Kids being abused for holy reasons critical
How could anyone watch someone being abused
Turn around saying all that can be done is a prayer or two
Racism on all sides, all shades a shame

People hate me because I don’t accept mysterious ways
People hate me when I just hate being afraid
If we wouldn’t murder each other
Maybe my mind wouldn’t be so resistant of gifts promised after death

How many tears?
How many deaths?
How many children?
Why keep going left?

Tears from my face
Waiting for the feeling
Invisible hope
My prayers spat back down from the ceiling
Bold enough
To question the point of it
Shamed by others
Following along because it is popular
The Emperor has new clothes
You better see it or say you do
If you won’t conform
The sky will end to you
We’ll show you what opinions cost too

Just mentioning a choice angers you
When did this become acceptable?

How many tears?
How many deaths?
How many children?
Why keep going left?
You better behave

How many tears?
How many deaths?
How many children?
Why keep going left?
You can’t be saved from death

How many tears?
How many deaths?
How many children?
Why keep going left?
We’ll promise you another life

You are being watched so for goodness sake, don’t think just take
Whatever we say as it is
You better behave
Or no gifts
Practice by claiming Santa has a list and it is amazing the sky does too
He knows when you are sleeping
He knows when you are awake
As a child they teach you constantly

Just mentioning a choice angers you
Closed mind
Just mentioning a choice angers you
Stay virtually blind
Your mine mind.
