just look around lyrics – first blood

he question they keep asking me
how can one so young be so bitter and angry
well, the answer is plain to see
maybe if they wernt so blind theyd see what i see
i see the homeless livin out on the street
on every corner theyre asking for money
i try to help them whenever i can
but sometimes i cant afford to help myself
i see diseases and modern plagues of our times
the greed of our leaders has made them blind
to our problems
they spend millions overseas,
people right here are fightin wars everyday
i see the whites that hate the blacks
blacks against the jews, race against religion
and there all too blind to see

when we fight each other it puts all of them at ease
it keeps us so busy, so they can do what they please
election time comes and theyre out for votes
thats when you see and hear from them the most
this is what theyre calling a democracy
thats just another word for hypocrisy
we keep fallin for the bait
when we realize, its always too late

i see the whites that hate the blacks
blacks that hate the jews, brother against brother
and theyre all to blind to see

as the rich get richer, the poor goin hungry
ive seen the toll it takes on the workingmans family
education system thats obsolete
cant hold a kids interest or keep em off the street
see a fathers fear, hear a mothers cry
what kind of a nation lets their children die
governments corrupt and full of red tape
then youre gonna ask me why i hate

why dont you open up your eyes so you can see
open up your ears so you can hear
take a look around and you will find
take a look around and you will find out why
