It's Murder

IT'S MURDER - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Look into the mans eyes
Listen to what he is saying 
Would you believe a purple sky?
Would you just believe?

Maybe time has passed for too long 
And words are only spoken in so they may not be heard 
If that's the case, it's murder unjustified
And the people are committing suicide
It's murder 
Look into the mans eyes and see
Maybe then you will believe 

When the time for sure isn't clear
We pretend we don't hear
Would you believe a big black eye?
Or a wicked sneer? 

Maybe centuries have come and gone 
And minstrels sing the same old song 
But they will never be heard 
If that's the case, it's murder unjustified 
People are committing suicide 
They refuse to listen or to understand the beat
It's murder 
Look into the mans eyes 
Maybe then you will believe 

It's the politics of America 
The royals get their kicks from stealing your life
They place your freedom on a marionette 
And dangle your children as targets
In hopes you will give up the fight

They eat your heart out 

If you know the reason for war then tell us
Convince strangers of your convictions 
Prove to ghosts that you have vision 
If you can't stand to fall down on your own

But listen, there is hope
No, don't roll your eyes at me
If that's the case, it's murder unjustified 
People are committing suicide 
They refuse to glisten or shine under the siege 
It's murder
Look into the mans eyes
Maybe then you will believe 

And the words have been spoken for so long
They're no longer heard
It's murder
Look into the mans eyes
Commit a suicide
