Mordred - The Strain
Into his flesh the knife cuts Inside he wants to survive Surgeons working hard to try to keep him alive He's only fourteen years old Beside the bed a cop sighs Don't think it's fair he's too young to die Pulse slows and then his heart quits Doctor's try to shock his life back They're unaware that in the street he sells crack Bullet hole through the kidneys The man who shot him understood If he could turn it round I'm sure that he would In times of greed and hate One must evaluate The cause of all this pain Social problems stay the same In times of greed and hate One must retaliate The truth is never plain Understand this is the strain Tried to reach society's standard Have wealth makes you a good man Not in the wrong he just wants to fit in the plan Teach our kids of wealth and power If you happen to live on the wrong side Got to live a life of crime just to keep you alive Today morality has lost Everyone's reaching for the top We can't change the world if a bullet can't be stopped In this age we've lost all our values And maybe nothing can suffice If it's true we'll crush ourselves in a self destructive vice In times of greed and hate One must evaluate The cause of all this pain Social problems stay the same In times of greed and hate One must retaliate The truth is never plain Understand this is the strain
