lyrics

there is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average / human being to supply any given army on any given day // and the best at murder are those who preach against it / and the best at hate are those who preach love / and the best at war finally are those who preach peace // those who preach god, need god / those who preach peace do not have peace / those who preach peace do not have love // beware the preachers /beware the knowers / beware those who are always reading books / beware those who either detest poverty / or are proud of it / beware those quick to praise / for they need praise in return / beware those who are quick to censor / they are afraid of what they do not know / beware those who seek constant crowds for / they are nothing alone / beware the average man the average woman / beware their love, their love is average / seeks average // but there is genius in their hatred / there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you / to kill anybody / not wanting solitude / not understanding solitude / they will attempt to destroy anything / that differs from their own / not being able to create art / they will not understand art / they will consider their failure as creators / only as a failure of the world / not being able to love fully / they will believe your love incomplete / and then they will hate you / and their hatred will be perfect // like a shining diamond / like a knife / like a mountain / like a tiger / like hemlock // their finest art
