You're now thirsty
Walking in the desert all alone
You're now searching
Lost in isolation from your soul

And the bullets you bite
From the pain you request
You're finding them harder to digest
And the answers you seek
Are the ones you destroy
Your anger's well deployed

Why can't you listen?
Why can't you hear?
Why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere?

You now hunger
Feeding your mind with selfishness
You now wander
Aimlessly around your consciousness

And your prophecies fail
And your thoughts become weak
The silence creates necessity
And you're clothing yourself
In the shields of despair
Your courage now impaired

Why can't you listen?
Why can't you hear?
Why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere?

You crucify all honesty
No signs you see do you believe
And all your words just twist and turn
Reviving just to crash and burn
You're fighting till the bitter end
If only your heart could open up and listen

Why can't you listen?
Why can't you hear?
Why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere?

Why can't you listen?
Why can't you hear?
Why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere?
