(First Verse)

Where is your conscience?
Does it still work?
Who made you bitter?
Does it still hurt?
You know the difference
Between right and wrong
Karma will chase you
Until it hits home

You pass down the madness
The ignorance and lies
With your scorn and your judgment
And don’t even know why
You’re cursing your children
They’ll pay for your sins
No justice, no peace
Until the bitter ends

(Second Verse)

The blood of the innocent
Stains your heart and your hands
When you see, and say nothing
And don’t take a stand
You say you’re a Christian
Is your head bowed in shame?
No one is beneath you
We’re all made the same

(Repeat Chorus)


The problem is human
The solution is, too
Uprooting the bitter
Begins inside you

(Repeat Chorus)
