The people stand here sulkily
Because we understand
You have no reason in our lives
Dictating as you do
The way we are, the way we die, the way the way we live our lives
It is not fair to judge the world through only your own mind

The time has come, the people said to talk of many things
Of why you feel your truth is right and other ways are sins,
And how the truth is really lost
