1. perfect world

From the recording Welcome to the Mayhem


in A perfect world
there are people
who believe
that the perfect world
they are livin in
will change
& no one will grieve
on the blood
thats been shed
for a world beyond
graced with peace

do you hear
as they whisper their words of empathy
do you hear
as they reach for you & me??
to do the same

and we know theyre being heard
and we know there are others
in a not so perfect world
doing the same

and its a damn shame
no one hears what you keep to yourself
no one hears what you are afraid to say
when you see a day filled with tears & blood
dripping away on bodies
of the ones
you could have saved

YEAH! its damn damn shame
when the blood on the hand of another
begins to drip from your own
when YOU could have whispered words of peace
helping others WHISPER EVEN louder

do not walk on by
& do not ignore the smallest cry
that falls on your ears
we cannot ignore it anymore
we must find a way
to comfort
all those grieving
& in pain somehow
this could be your calling
somehow someone could be falling
into your arms
opening for peace
in their not so perfect world
and your whisper
could replace another's cry
who has been silenced by
the blood that has been shed
by those who've been mislead
by war
yes there will be peace in a perfect world
