Heal me with some words
Can you hear them crying?

Shroud us with words
While they're out there dying

Drop words, not bombs
Is that a possibility?

Is one worse than the other?
Is this all a fallacy?

Like the individual, words are beautiful
But when grouped together cause distress
Forcing us to believe through duress

They see the sheep are gathering
Quickly, the trap is set
Fragile is the mind, how soon we all forget

So now I come to see
All it was meant to be
Was a line in history

Kill the feeling with the lie
Listen as the higher tries
Our simple need satisfied

Tell me more of your mistake
As I fall into the wake
Another meaning left to take

And as I walk this line
I will soon come to find
The words weigh heavy on our minds

Simplicity in a phrase
A population unfazed

Simplicity in a phrase
A population unfazed...
Author's Notes:
Title says it all.
