The Path to Literacy

from by Beer and Pretzels



Can you hate something you don’t truly understand?
What gives you the right to condemn a man?
What’s one more innocent laid to rest?
Wave your flag in conquest,
For popularity you confessed.
Tear down borders, rip down walls.
The idea of invisible borders is they’re nothing at all.
Open a book, take what’s inside.
If knowledge is power, why have so many died?
How can we prepare for the future as the present falls apart?
As humans do we care, or were we just doomed from the start?
Distance yourself from wasted ideology.
Retake, remake your life with blatant honesty.
Honestly I think we have failed as a race to continue our own humanity.
Indeed history is written, written by those who want to be remembered,
Not those we should.
We’ve lied lied... LIED to ourselves for far too long.
Start looking back on our few precious minutes of history.
How will you remember how are you remembered?
It’s never the way you want. They’ll never tell you the truth.
Intelligence does makes you dangerous.
Knowledge makes the flock stray. Now leave the herd.
