The Chauvinist Effect


Another day

One of hatred and greed

A world of sin with no consequence

For the deed

No shame

For the world is the same

Keeps on trudging

Day after day

But stop

Smell the bitter air

Ripe with countless souls

That speak despair

The shame

For our own hearts beat

Day after day


Hear the beat

You and I are the same

Same beat, same heart

Under the guise of a name

No shame

We are one

People, nations, countries

Beat by beat


No battle is never won

No death justified

The deed always cold and done

So shame

Day after day, shame

Make it stop



This system of hatred

The greed, the pride, the hate

Shame what’s been wasted

Beat by beat

Day after day

Stop, Today

And Change
