They say mankind will kill himself

But what am I supposed to do if I’m born in a war

If my life is on the line……play victim, inflame my heart with fear?

When the only thing I fear is God

So in this civil war of lies do I fight or do I pray every second of every night for God to bring us light

Because I shall fear no man

And I shall not tremble beside my brothers and disintegrate their mind with fearful doubt

So God….in a life of deception and lives taking lives….how do you want me to make it out

Without being a mirror of what I despise
