you hate it

because you don't understand it

but just open up your eyes 

and see, we plead

your acts of terror and violence

do nothing to silence 

the screams of agony 

but all around people are gathering 

to pray, to hope, to love,

the one thing you couldn't 

ever dream of

too caught up in your own demise

took it out on others 

taking pleasure in the cries

you're sick, twisted and such a fool

to think your acts 

would do anything but unite 

the coming together 

of people tonight
