So, here we are
Killing each other
Again

I guess, we hate ourselves
I guess, we hate life
I guess, we hate love

Can't tell the good guys
From the bad
Anymore

Can't tell the right cause
From the wrong
Anymore

I guess, we just hate ourselves

Don't think I want to play
That one
Anymore

Don't want to fight
For anything
Anymore

I guess, I'll just stop hating

You can hate
And curse me
If you want to

You can call me
An infidel
If you want to

But, I'm not going
To hate you
Anymore

I guess, I'll just try loving

You can hate
And despise me
If you want to

You can call me
Unpatriotic
If you want to

But I'm not going
To hate them
Anymore

I guess, I'll try loving them instead

You can try to
Scare me
If you want to

You can call me
A Coward
If you want to

But, I'm not
Going to be afraid
Anymore

I guess, I'll try a new kind of courage

You can tie me up
And throw me down
If you want to

You can push me up
Against a wall
If you want to

But, you can't
Scare me
Anymore

So, here I am
Learning not to kill
Again

I guess, I no longer hate myself
I guess, I no longer hate life
I guess, I no longer hate love
