I see so little hope in you,So much despair,As I look in your eyes I wonder,What thoughts linger there.Life means nothing to you,At least that’s what they say,But it doesn’t mean that you have the right to take life away.How were we to know what was going on inside your mind.You never let it show what was going on behindThose killer’s eyesKiller’s eyesYou’ve seen your picture in the paper.You’re little sister’s pinned it on the wall.She thinks you’re in some kind of movie.Imagine her surprise when she saw you on the news.Reporters came around and asked for interviews.So little compassion, so icy cool.They say you were a poor boy, you know that life can be cruel.Hate builds up from childhood, your world was a slumBut you haven’t got the right to blow it to kingdom comeHow could we know what it was like inside a killer’s mindIt never really showed, you kept the secret deep insideThose killer’s eyesKiller’s eyesYou say the world is full of bullshit,So you kill just as you see fit.They say that you’re a fanatic with a mission.We all go through hell in some kind of way,Can you tell me what it’s like to be there every day? When you were young you had a visionWhy’d you go and do a thing like that? And now we see you on the television.Imagine our surprise when we saw you on the news,And reporters came around and asked for interviews.I see so little hope in you,So much despair,As I look in your eyes I wonder,What thoughts linger there.Life means nothing to you,At least that’s what they say,But it doesn’t mean that you have the right to take life away.When you were just a childYou’d hide away when other children criedBut how were we to knowThese tears that flowed were from a killer’s eyesI see so little hope in you,So much despair,As I look in your eyes I wonder,What thoughts linger there.Life means nothing to you,At least that’s what they say,But it doesn’t mean that you have the right to take life away.Those killer’s eyesSee the whites of their eyesThose killer’s eyesSee the whites of their eyes
