This Is Enough

Let’s face it, this world is crashing and burning down
And all around us, this world is dying, trying to get out
Trying to get out

The Earth is an awfully mistreated place
It's time to put back what we take
No matter how long we must repay
For the greed and need each and everyday
Step up, and choose your involvement
Step back, you’re against the wall
And pick your already fighting
So which side do you hate more

I’m ready for what I’m sick of putting up with
I need solidarity, seeds and soil
I need a safe place where we can grow our ideas
But uniting to cause fuss for causing a fight
Instigating retaliation is the first pin that drops
And if you listen carefully you can hear the voices screaming
This Is Enough

This is fucking crazy; we need to give a shit
How this effects the next generation of kids
So why should we give in to the powers they display
When their betraying Earth and us all the same
All the poisons that they gave us
They said were safe
I say give them hell and make them feel our hunger
Howl, Howl, Howl and Howl
And if you listen carefully you can hear the voices screaming
This Is Enough

We’re so caught up in our own shit
Do you think we could have stopped this?
What about the pollution? Random shooting?
Bulling kids into deep depression?
Who wants to live like that? Not me!
I want to be free from intimidation, violence, and poverty
Is it any wonder I keep a weapon strapped to my boot?
This world in which we create is abusive and insulting
It enrages me each and everyday
All this cruelty and injustice has a way
Of belittling our very hopes and dreams
That, we so desperately cling
it is non stop, never ending
A recurrent of the same distain
Destructive behavior crippling our very work
It’s discouraging but without you I can’t even look at the world.

If you listen carefully you can hear our voices screaming
I have had enough!
