Song Lyrics - Pepper Spray

It’s all the same
No matter what they say
Power will crush your dreams
There is no remorse for what they steal

Collective bargaining
And peaceful assembly
Are just words on a paper
Hope has never been real

An innocent life
Must be lost
Before change can occur
That's always the cost

They will never lose
When will you realize?
Evil never sleeps
What you said was only a dream

The people stand up
Each and every generation
It makes us feel good
But they laugh as we float down stream

An innocent life
Must be lost
Before change can occur
That's always the cost

Evil never sleeps, but it's not alive either. It's dead and in the grave. Break the spell! We are not zombies, and we are NOT alone!!.......

Nice poem though...disturbs me to my bones.

Catching up as I said. This one is awesomely put, and I truly appreciate it, but it makes me want to cry with sorrow and scream at the powers that be. You photo is great, but I'm reminded of way too many fatal accidents at intersections, certain road curves, etc. which have been addressed as dangerous, yet nothing is ever done until at least one (usually more) fatality. This world's like that.
