The Cries of the Weak Lyrics

3. The Cries of the Weak (5:32)
Trust you,
In your padded little world,
With your riches stacked high,
And your friends paid well!
Trust you,
In your sheltered little world,
To think in mankind's heart,
Aren't thoughts of himself.

Do you truly believe,
Without the threat of punishment,
That the world would keep ticking over,
Everyone just trying their best?
Hell no!

Push the idea that mankind,
Should be free to do what he wants,
Then watch as those that weren't born as lucky as you,
Stand by and watch the world burn!

You were raised, isolated from brutal necessity,
Your self belief is a total delusion,
We've taught our young that they're worthy of credence,
A falsehood that has lead to this conceited confusion.

Safe in your tower,
At the pinnacle of civilisation,
Below you, witness, our evolutionary roots,
We're all born selfish, a vital realisation.

"But we can't help it!"
"It's just the way that we are!"
Come the cries of the weak,
When they see that the path is hard.

We're doomed to stagnate as a species,
Until we admit that it spells our fall,
It's not just a deviant minority,
It lives in the heart of us all.
