when we examine and loathe

A machine is not reliable
A person is not true
They are all going to leave
They will all abandon you

You may place your faith in gods
You may rely on science to give you answers
But it shall lie and deceive
But they reveal to be just fakers

Ive seen faith destroy
Ive witnessed the destruction of lives
These things are not worth existence
These are not the things that draw knives

Blame humanity for all the ills
Nothing and no one else has done the damage
The scapegoat is what you are a part of
Just go and cause a global haemorrhage

But although our form are so similar
Therein lies the fundamental difference
I refuse to make this all familiar
I do rise up and seek my vengeance

Your existence is my bane
Screaming into a mirror
All the sleeping pain
Will change naught, as none do hear

There is only truth in lies
As no one would dare speak all
They only fear for they own sides
You are the one to take the fall

Countries get torn to shreds
Over the quarrels of petty men
And young girls do cry in their beds
Because mothers do not care or ken

But the way to combat it is clear
Just take away the restraints
And shout as though there is nothing to fear
No one will listen to the taints

Because they are too preoccupied
With their stock portfolios and shares
If they actually realised
They would be caught so unawares

For this army that is within everyone
Is waiting for the chance
To spring to life and grab a gun
And destroy that makes the waking enhanced
