Personal opinion.
Can you see the future?
Through the barrel of a gun?
Bullets can't replace a life.
Heaven and hell are perspectives.
Can you see life's value?
Before you take it away?
Hmm? No? Sad.

Can you see life's value?
Through the use of hate?
If this sick play continues,
Our lives together shall end.
Life is our sacred trust.
Leave death at the door.
Hmm? No? Sad.

Can you see life's value?
By living lies each day?
Trading morality for funny papers.
Truth shall set us free.
Love's required to be used.
Repeating our past mistakes,
Shall bring about our end.
Hmm? Yes. True.

You all might say I'm lying.
Since most dreams never come to pass.
But by serving society freely.
I stand before you today.
Hmm? Yes. True.

Can you see life's value?
By trading in death each day?
Someone's puppet in a play.
Trading you deeds of service.
In return for nothing at all.
Together we stand a chance,
Divided we shall fail and fall.
Hmm? Yes. True.
