Willfull Ignorance

This song is by Blood Has Been Shed and appears on the EP I Dwell On Thoughts Of You (1999).

Tearing flesh
Searing wounds of despair
Open for a lifetime

A scarred existence never truly finding peace
A lost world breeding predators who hunt out of insecurity
The pain of countless souls goes unanswered
Our response is void
Where were we then?

We should stop this cycle
But we nurture its growth
Tears flow and flow

Our reactions fall incredibly short from the needed action
At some point we will have gone too far
We do not own one another
We must begin to nurture respect
At some point we must accept responsibility

I did not forget you in your pain
I still love you
I was there when you cried for help
I did not close my eyes
Love at the cost of hate is what we have paid
The fear of desolation bringing the chance for new life

We should weep for you
But where are the tears?
We should fight for you
But where is our cry?
We should punish the iniquity forced upon you
But we close our eyes and our hearts
We are responsible for your blood
We are responsible for your tears
We are responsible for your pain
We must accept it
We must accept
This generation will pay for the blood that has been shed
