Song Lyrics

I couldn't raise a kid in this world
Gun violence, rape, war
There’s no silence
We're cast into corruption and greed
Up from the top to leave the bottom in agony
Who is using their head before they pull the trigger? There's an ocean dividing us but you're making it bigger If we had a cure to end the hurt,
Would it be revealed or would we still be cursed? Our world is lost
There's something to be said
For an entire existence taken for granted
A lost boy in a cursed world, forever running in circles
Take me out of this world
There's nothing left but this endless hurt
If we don't begin again
Release our demons, start a rebellion
How do we fix what's already broken?
Too many years and nothing’s working
What will it take for us to realize
Hatred is the killer, our hope, our hope will die My world, your world
Our world is cursed
There's something to be said
For an entire existence taken for granted
A lost boy in a cursed world, forever running in circles There's nothing left to say
Your entire existence taken for granted
A lost boy in a cursed world, forever stuck in the cycle
They call us the broken generation
But I chose hope over hoping they were wrong
And they will be, so all I can do is be a leader of change Not just a kid with something prove
Stained with rage and a distaste for pain
Corrupting the corruption will make me no better
When my words are still seen as Lucifer’s love letter
I could set my house on fire to get you out
But its not yours so I’ll put this match out for now
Just know in a world silenced by oppression Acceptance speaks loud, but love speaks louder
