Hate flows from the heart and poison is on your lip
An arrow hits its mark as your venomous words drip
Feeding the fire with fuel, the flames grow and grow
The conflagration rages until it is out of control
And we wonder why we feel like we are always on the edge
We push each other ever closer to a dangerous ledge
We only want to hear echos of our own voice?
Is our moral compass based on the loudest noise?
Tolerance preached by the left, but is always contradicted
You don’t tolerate any view but the one you scripted
The most extreme views on both the left and the right
Flow from the same source, the enemy of the light
We become confident in our ignorance and think we know it all
Reinforced by popularity, but pride comes before the fall
