WHERE IS THE LOVE

WHERE IS THE LOVE

Where is the love 
on this senseless night
why does everyone need to fight ?
it bothers me the way you look at me 
the way you move around 
like an crazy old clown 
where is the knowledge in this room
why are you acting so confused ?
I think it's senseless don't you ?
I hear the sound of deep emotions 
what happen to true devotions
the way you are acting tonight
I think you have lost your mind
another time 
what is wrong with you ?
your friends act as if they don't want you 
so why come to me and tell me your bad days
I don't need no more gray's 
look at them 
they'd rather be out playing the town
making you like like a senseless clown
for crying out loud move about 
your drowwning in your own sins
and you are being let down by your friends
I don't need this agin
I'm no dummy 
you been playing your games again
But I will keep my stringth without you
so go and move along 
while I play a new song
I found my string deep within
I wont let you back in 
jUST to beat me down again
you know this part
when the heart is frozen 
throwing the towle on in
there is no more motive
for me to take it all in
I run my life in fear 
but not this time
what I once known 
I left that darkness behind
I made up my mind
you are a savage of a monster 
that loves playing games in the night
you mock the good 
to bring on what isn't right
the night will always hunt you 
just wait and see
So, move along and get away from me
Because every word I hear from you are lies
go on and let me live my life
I don't need your darkness
I don't need to clean up your mess
and I will no further serve you mind
don't look at me like you are blind
I see the cure in your eyes
but your not going to play me this time
and by the way remove your pride
you are a beat up clown who has lost his mind
think I was going to take you back another time
I have been trying to shave the sheep 
from wolves like you.
