Have you ever stopped to think?

have you ever stopped to think that maybe you’re the problem? brainwashed and obedient you think only what has been approved   have you ever stopped to think that maybe you’re the perpetrator? blindfolded and self-righteous you commit the very crimes you claim to hate   have you ever stopped to think that maybe this is not justice after all?

The Fight (Dead End 1)
