Funding wars and choosing sides
Enemies born where friends reside
Rising with the changing tides
How can we be so blind?
Placing weapons in their hands
Claiming only to save their lands
Clearly, no one understands
How can we be so blind?
Deny our role in the rising death toll
Chaos erupts, we lose control
Another stain on our burning soul
How can we be so blind?
Feels like we’ve been here before
Meddling in another civil war
Elections always promise more
How can we be so blind?

As the revenants arise, you blindly turn away
Staring through the void, the mirror shows the way
As the sins of the past become the path of today
The revenant claws your back, as death comes our way

Way and means are always the same
Instilling fear and casting blame
Secular law thrown to the flame
How can we be so blind?
Force religion and politics to converge
Crumbled society will diverge
Paint dissenters as a scourge
How can we be so blind?
Use your god like a sharpened sword
Religious freedom to be abhorred
Backward thinking we can’t afford
How can we be so blind?
Feels like we’ve been here before
Religion and sensibility at war
Can we never expect much more?
How can we be so blind?
