A Better World

lyrics

the path that I have chosen
it needs no words
the best that I have followed
they had no worth

I believe
cities destroyed by our waking dreams
panic created by a ripple in the sea
I will see
horror is another strategic tool
violence is another word for silence
I believe
youth was stolen when they took us as they pleased
youth was stolen when we pleaded at their knees
I will see
why can't you answer any of our prayers?
why is your answer silence?

sight is just a weapon
sent to stray
truth is just a message
their words can't claim

I believe
buried in the backyard where all the truth goes
burned in the open when all but truth knows
I will see
sight is the weapon cleverly deceived
sight is the weapon of silence
I believe
facts are sound but disputed anyway
truth is a message power can't claim
I will see
vision is treason and justice is hate
wisdom is a vision that's silenced

buried in the open
the secrets wait
yonder I hear laugher
it comes my way

I believe
freely we laugh and love through every day
freely we live where power can't stray
I will see
wealth is a weapon born by its chains
wealth is a word for silent
I believe
freely we laugh and love through every day
freely we live where power can't stray
I will see
wealth is a weapon borne by its chains
wealth is a word for silent
I believe
I can see
