Now We All Fall Down

Now We all Fall Down

In history
Of lessons learned
Of cultures tortured
People burned
Where unimagined
Evil’s lurked
Still we punish
Those who hurt

The blood’s been spilled
The battle fought
We always want
More than we’ve got
True satisfaction
Can’t be bought
No life is worth
A life that’s lost

No victory
Has fixed the world
Not one religion
Has the cure
No single person
Can be sure
That there’s one answer
For the earth

In all we know
In all we’ve done
With all the lessons
That have come
With every memory
Of every wrong
Still we push
And all fall down
