Lyrics

I watch the news,
I see events,
Unfold panoramically,
I take it in,
I analyse,
Every part in this real-time play,
Time after time,
Can’t help myself,
Reach the same conclusion again.

It seems as if we were born to kill,
All the others that pitched against our will,
Form this instinct into nationhood,
That is born to fight.

There is only one fact that becomes quite clear,
If you watch the world unfold around your fears,
There is only one fact that exists today,
That humans need a basic love of hate.

Man against man,
The same old plot,
Takes to the embittered global stage,
Where borders fall,
Let borders fall,
A tussle for rock, rubble, field and wall,
Time after time,
I recognise,
The same dark themes resurface again.

It seems as if we exist to hate,
The need for destruction is born innate,
Form this feeling into nationhood,
Of intolerance.

There is only one fact that becomes quite clear,
If you watch the world unfold around your fears,
There is only one fact that exists today,
That humans need a basic love of hate.

I try to find,
Within my mind,
Other reasons we act so dire,
But I can’t find,
That motive why,
Except the same old axiom,
Time after time,
Keep coming back,
To the dark truth that shoulders our acts.

It seems as if we have a need,
To fight differences to our beliefs,
Form this frenzy into nationhood,
Watch the rise of hate.

There is only one fact that becomes quite clear,
If you watch the world unfold around your fears,
There is only one fact that exists today,
That humans need a basic love of hate.
There is only one fact that surrounds us all,
That in rising we are heading for a fall.

Pluralites non est ponenda sine necessitate.
(Multiplicity ought not to be posited without necessity.)
