I turn left, I turn right,
And yet it all obscures my sight
As I wonder, it this all real?
Will this world ever heal?
Human rights are emphasized with the aristocracy
While influential individuals are shunned in society
Where lies become truth and truth becomes lies
And oppression looks like freedom in disguise.
And we live in a fantasy that we are free
Though this freedom costs heavily what we cannot see
The rich get wealthier because the needy get poorer
The voiced get louder because the silenced get slaughtered.
What we cannot confront
Becomes an affront
A perception unpleasant yet vivid
Makes us become livid
Whatever we hate deeply–
That is human, ceases to be,
That is reality, becomes a conspiracy,
That is controversial, becomes inertial,
That is unknown, becomes postponed,
That is weighty, becomes a mockery.
And by the hour, lives are shattered,
And by the angered, intentions are soured
And by the corrupted, heroes becomes cowards
Democracy for a nation, tyranny for the rest
Ignore the majority of the world, as long as a minority are blessed
And I will not even begin to name all the countries who helplessly call–
Call for help from the nations that brought upon their downfall
Tears of joy from one end, tears of sorrow from the other
Imprison the freedom fighters, and hide the criminals under cover.
What affronts us,
Is labelled a lie thus
What makes us livid
Shall be ridded
Whatever we desire—
That is inhuman, becomes required,
That is unrealistic, becomes inspired,
That is immoral, becomes admired,
That is worthless, becomes entire,
That is backwards, becomes acquired.
And by the second,
Injustice is beckoned–
Is this really the perfect democracy?
Because all I see is hypocrisy.
