If evil were good
and courtesy were rude.
If truth were false,
would that affect your pulse?

If heaven were earth,
would it pain your heart?
If facts were lies
and fools were the wise.

If rights were wrong,
would you sing the same song.
If days were nights
and darkness were light...

Questions without answers...
the candid cure for cancer.
I'm lost in my thoughts;
my conscience has not been bought.

If there were no religions,
would you change your opinions?
Questions for a mass burial...
prepare for future memorials.
