One Man's Life

Now you're so afraid
The promise is in silence to be made
Time has come for you to feel the pain
As the bridges burn throughout the rain

If one man's life was taken, why do others have to go?
If you are mistaken, it takes a man to know
Craving social justice, but without a need to fight
Grabbing all attention just to be on the right side

You in rebel's fame
History won't always know your name
You are never prone to feel the same
The will to find a sense inside this shame

You didn't cast the first stone, there's no need to throw the next
The weakness of the lonely man is drowned inside the mass

Desperate attempt to die in vain
Trying to feel the pain
