"Terrorist"

I said
Please don't bring me down

Listen
As I flip through the scenes on my TV screen
I see pieces
There ain’t no peace for me
It’s deceiving
I see political prisoners
And refugees overseas plead for freedom
I’m seeing images of women being beaten
Oppressed nonetheless
I’m seeing kids bleeding
Again, I see some lives changed forever
Their mind state is irate
I pray they get better

Cause I believe in peace for all people
Lethal but only toward the forces of evil
And I believe in freedom in every land
For every man
Freedom without a price tag
Murder in the name of God is not "peace"
And it never made sense to me
So please don’t look at me
To be the reason for your grief
And don’t disturb my inner peace

All I see is injustice
Everything I hear is false
They took all my spirit
Left me with nothing else

They’re the ones rolling in with all the tanks
All I do is clinch my fist
Tell me, how did I become
How am I the terrorist?

Who supplied the bullets to the troops
And gave weapons to the youth
From the pulpit tell us who's the culprit
Hide the truth hand us lies
While we fight for our lives
Make us rise and salute
Keep our eyes off the loot

I heard words can never hurt you
Rather sticks and stones sure do
I’m hearing words degrade races
And resonate hate
And in turn it separates us
We should trade places
Then maybe it can teach us
That we’re related
And exhibit like features
I see we each believe in peace
Don’t that make us both believers
Heaven is a place on earth
Without a grievance

How you assume that I’m inhuman
Is truly a delusion
Hollywood induced
Viewing me as the intruder
I hope you see me eye-to-eye
I don’t believe in overnight
But I believe in due time
So I told you my philosophies
On everyday atrocities
Freedom, and equality
Not to make you follow my lead
But as a bridge
So that we can connect
And the both of us can live

All I see is injustice
Everything I hear is false
They took all my spirit
And left me with nothing else

They’re the ones rolling in with all the tanks
All I do is clinch my fist
So tell me, how did I become
How am I the terrorist?
