Cease without desist is not peace
It's a permission slip
Toss a few more thousand rockets
Weak isn't a synonym for innocent
Religious doesn't mean meek
The greatest value in life
is the right to be here

I Don’t Wake
quik, What's the biggest difference between rains and tides?
One can feed the fields, one can kill for miles
What's the reason I have for defending mine?
I'll give you a hint, this is the war of ideas
This is war when you wake to news every day
Calls to violence and injustice. Quik What's the name
for "these days"?
When war takes taxes like names
We need heroes with resumés
We need houses in safe places
Not bombs everyday. Sometimes,
peace costs more than a brave face
To cross oceans takes more than a spotlight
You have to drive yourself through the storms
I will not be at war.
I will not pay
for those who keep me fighting
I will not stand for death
I will not be defined by "these trying times."
I correct them. I define myself
I am the good I want to see
justice. Refuse to do right
Moral means to strive for my life.
Quick! Nobody's free while they die
I want to trade ideas—the good ones—
I want bad Gods burned for war crimes
When I stop struggling for power
I have it. When I stop praying to peace
I'm responsible for it.
