When seeds of hate have grown and spread
With unkind deeds and words said
In explosion of fire and bloody war
Fear rocks men soul from near and far.
When cries for justice simmer
And anger grips the minds of men.
They transform into devils
Causing hell and bloody mayhem.
When the blood of the innocent
pays the price for hate;
That has blossomed and flourished
at our own gate,
The prayers for peace will not be answered
As hate is loud and must be heard.
