about

Freedom Is Selective

And you laugh
share jokes
as they suffocate
you laugh
smoke a cigarette
as they splutter
you laugh
as they cry
in fear and pain
you laugh
as the oceans are raped
forgetting if they all die
so do we
who the hell are we
to let this happen
silence is their fuel
silence is our flaw
who the hell are we
to let this happen
silence will be their fall
still, you laugh
as they splutter
while I weep for their death
I don't know who we are anymore
we would sooner be silent
than dare to share the word
I don't see a collective mass
only a shrivelled vision
of what we could all be
if we stood for what is right
I care not about ridicule
we are warriors in a modern hell
with wisdom and words as our weapons
I only hope it isn't too late to turn the tide
as I hear another dolphin thrash and cry
I won't look away
as another is taken into captivity
this is nothing more than an atrocity
I don't see a collective mass
only a shriveled vision
of what we could all be
if we stood for what is right
still, you laugh
hunter with no conscience
as the water runs red
I would rather die poor
than hold money
tainted with blood
I would rather stand alone
voice for the voiceless
than know I never tried
I shall never forget
for the rest of my lives
the corruption you fail to hide
