lyrics

Can peace and progress really coexist?
Can words and reason do more than a fist?
When the audience I speak to don't exist
And the biggest bigots preach to coexist
And justice has been rendered meaningless
Tell me why I shouldn't close my mouth and
Start to clench my fist
Can peace and progress really coexist?
Can words and reason do more than a fist?
I beg for change but things still say the same
Sit at your lap just for these table scraps
What has peace given me but morsels of morality?
I'll bite my tongue and bide my time
As silence slowly turns to violence
Can peace and progress really coexist?
Can words and reason do more than a fist?
When justice has been rendered meaningless,
Tell me why I shouldn't close my mouth and start to clench my...
What has peace given me but morsels of morality?
I'll bite my tongue and bide my time - create a change more "dignified"
What has peace given me but morsels of morality?
Beneath this silence lies a thirst for violence
I'll be exactly who you thought I was
I'll be exactly who you want me to be
I'll be that thug
I'll be that criminal
I'll prove you right
I'll use your words
I'll speak your language
I'll prove you right
I'll fight violence with violence, and
You won't see that you pushed me here
