Heads of State, Hands of Blood


Leader, are you?
How come I’m not following?
Responsible, are you?
How come you send me in to do your dirty work?
Humane, are you?
How come you kill?

Keeping me safe is your priority?
So you kill and you kill and you kill?
Keeping me happy is your priority?
So you kill and you kill and you kill?
Keeping me full is your priority?
So you kill and you kill and you kill?

Keeping you elected is your priority.
So you kill and you kill and you kill.
Keeping me educated is your priority.
So you kill and you kill and you kill.
Keeping me deaf, blind and dumb is your priority.
So you kill and you kill and you kill.

And when my mind opens, what then?
And when my mouth opens, what then?
And when my heart opens, what then?

Am I, then, open?
To attacks?
To abuse?
To death?

To the death!
I’ll have it out with you
Give me what you got
All I have is truth
And I’m not afraid to use it
My hands are already bloody
I bloodied them for you
What have you done for me?

What have you done for us?
Yes, we’re looking at you
Generations of haters turned lovers
Generations of children who grew up
Generations of brothers and sisters

Do not put that gun in my hand
Do not put that thought in my head
You may be the heads of state
But you are also the hands of blood.
