What's This All About

Lyric

We've been born to obey not to lose and not to fail
Born with one aim not to go astray
We were born with eyes so we think we can see
Not knowing we're blind we believe everything
We think we are free but in fact we'll never be
Our body's a trap our minds are possessed
The world's Soul is in danger caused by people's anger
And we're all witnessing our Mother suffering

What's this all about? what's this all about?
I guess I get it now I guess I get it now
What's this all about? what's this all about?
I guess I get it now I guess I get it now

We've been taught how to play though we'll never win the game
'Cause them are setting the rules so we go follow like fools
And when one's out of reach they go put 'em on a leash
So that they can control and that you'll never know
And everywhere is war but what are they fighting for if not for love?
See everywhere is war but what are we fighting for if not for us?
I know they're scared of us we could be dangerous
If we all become united as one

What's this all about? what's this all about?
I guess I get it now I guess I get it now
What's this all about? what's this all about?
I guess I get it now I guess I get it now

Them want us to fight one another kill each other

Braek hate betray a Brother
They take from our Mother in the name of our Father
Still we don't come to believe our leader's a thief
We're the Daughter we're the Son

We're the people we're one
We're the source we're the force
We're the earth we're the stars
We're the fire we're the wind the Queen we're the Kings
We're the thunder we're the rain
We got to break the chains

What's this all about? what's this all about?
I guess I get it now I guess I get it now
What's this all about? what's this all about?
I guess I get it now I guess I get it now

What's this all about? what's this all about?
I guess I get it now I guess I get it now
What's this all about? what's this all about?
I guess I get it now I guess I get it now
