Doc Jazz – Why The Innocent lyrics

You're telling me you're tired of seeing crimes of hate
You're telling me its time to turn the tide
Well you know that I agree that things have got to change
But I say there's a way to do it right

You're telling me you're tired of seeing sorrow and pain
And that you want to stop injustice now
But tell me whats the use of paying hate with hate
Cause to me it seems that shouldn't be allowed

If you believe that justice is a sacred thing
Then show us that you're able to do right
Cause if you think this winter can be turned to spring
Well it doesn't with the flames that you ignite

Why direct your anger at the weaker ones
They are not the ones who caused you pain
So why destroy their lives with your bombs and guns
Do you think the hurt you cause will be your gain

Why the innocent
Tell me why oh why
Why the innocent
Tell me why oh why
Why the innocent
Why the innocent
You can never win by causing more pain
So my heart goes out to all who were slain
Breaking mother's hearts is simply insane
Cause when the tears are gone the anger remains
And the cycle starts all over again ....
