1. WHY?

 

[Hook]

these days of violence are bleeding away 

why? is it his complexion?

or maybe her religion?

you lit the fuse and stoked the blaze

we're all in a cold sweat now, heaving

what would you do if you saw your city weeping?

 

Verse 1:

hangovers, partygoers shocked into clarity

shame on you, why you got to spread fear

people trying to live peacefully

they tell you to be sensible but you can't hear

so i'm asking you 

if you're human why do you practice hate 

let me scrutinize, you now

i found a touch of madness and cannibalism

yeah, i might be a nihilist but you're the very definition

of those who perpetuate schisms

you can justify til the sun come up

but i hate you cos my fun ran out 

when you came up

 

[Hook]

we're all in a cold sweat now, heaving

Verse 2:

your hypocrisy runs deep so don't tell me

white lies, your innocence dies

when the bullets fly

piercing the sky, see the blood of humanity

weep to your feet so shamefully

but i still see the stains on Central bridges

that tasted the funk of your hate

when you forsook the prayers so late 

and came to shake up 

the hearts of mothers, fathers and kids

carving away at white hearts while you carried

darkened intentions

life's a gamble for you

and i no longer feel secure no more

[Bridge]

i'm kicking back now

sitting on a gold throne

i won't ask you why

cos i already atoned
