    Description:
       This isn't meant to be eloquent or witty. It's not meant to be well-written. It's just meant to tell my version of the truth. It's only meant as a means of conveying what's happening in the world.

    dotsWe Are The Hopelessdots
    -------------------------------------------


    We've got nothing to look forward to
    Our future is bleak and distant
    We have a debt to pay
    And we're owed dues by people
    Who will be long dead
    Before we can wash away
    Their stain of fascism
    Our grandchildren will be
    Paying the price for our
    Blood-oil and funeral expenses
    Provided we don't blow ourselves up
    Someone else is likely to do it for us
    We've been left with nothing
    But mushroom-shaped
    Plutonium dreams of the future
    And the hypocrisy of weapons
    Because how can you
    Spread peace in the world
    When violence here is commonplace
    An everyday entertainment
    Remember that the bombs that were
    Dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki
    Were carried by American planes
    Just as the guns killing civilians
    In the chaos and violence in Iraq
    Are carried by American soldiers
    And the funding for America's
    ten thousand, two hundred-forty
    nuclear weapons abroad and at home
    Has come from America's future
    We've paid for a lifetime of fighting
    Before we can vote against it
    Before we can be called to military service
    Before we can drink away the sorrows
    Of a world that has left us behind
    Left us no power, no law, no rights
    Left us the dead weight of millions
    Left us with no hope for the future

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
