Stavesacre – Why Good People Suffer lyrics

I tell you what I want to

Never more than what is safe

I show you what I want to

And the rest I hide away
Towards the basest of things
Sometimes I can feel myself leaning

Am I just a liar? Or a killer? Or a beast?

Should I sit in judgement?

Do I have to judge me?

I couldn't tell you why good people suffer

I couldn't tell you why the bad ones run free

God showers blessings
On the righteous and the wicked

I only know that that covers me

Do I feel like screaming

When the weak fall to the strong?

Would I trade my freedom for a cheap thrill?

Right for wrong?
And if I could just rid the world of all the evil within

Would that include me?

I guess that would depend

Who am i?

    Basically it's the answer to the Question of why God allows bad things happen to good people. The bible says their is none righteous, not even one. If God didn't allow good things to happen to bad people then nothing good would happen at all to anyone. Evil is in the world and it effects everyone. God allows good to happen to everyone, and it's a good thing because "it covers me."
