Hollow Points

In many chambers countless hollow points rest
Targeting them afar from the sniper's nest
Execution of maneuvers trained to an instinct
Never relax until the enemy is extinct
Ideas fuel the finger and compose the round
Below is an enemy shouting until we're drowned

A clown dances upon the stage and boasts
Rapid fire shots, hurting all coast to coast
Spreading dishonesty to all the folks
Who won't see it for what it is, a hoax
A bullet won't cure, it will not reveal
The poison of the mind, that we must heal

Why are the old gods stealing the spotlight
Treading over us in a lasting fight
Near immortal ideas which are prone to latching
That harm better ideas from completely hatching
They have already been replaced many years ago
Old gods risen from the ashes of another foe
The empty gods supported by mere blind hate and rage
We can't ignore them, absolutely must engage
We must take a new tactic to resolve
To take true victory we must evolve
Curing the poisoned mind must consider
What exposure will cause it to wither

Millions have sacrificed much to alter the story
At best we have only had temporary glory
If war could have ended points of pain and division
We would have long since acquired a final decision
All the sacrifices made were at best a prequel
We must accept that war, war will never change people
