Hatred In His Heart

Written By: Kevin Medill

Hatred In His Heart
© 2007 Kevin Medill

Oklahoma City, 1995
A bomb exploded, extinguishing lives
Women, men, innocent babies
Never to return to their families
Why did so many loved ones have to die?
We couldn’t understand, though we tried

Chorus: When a man locks hatred in his heart
His thoughts become evil and dark
Unseen voices begin to take control
A homicidal obsession lodges in his soul
He wants to kill, soon he’ll start
When a man stores hatred in his heart

Littleton, Colorado, 1999
Bullets, then blood, spewed at Columbine
Calculated, senseless shootings
Another act, cowardly and chilling
We questioned, “How could this be?”
The motives were a mystery

Chorus: When a man locks hatred in his heart
His thoughts become evil and dark
Unseen voices begin to take control
A homicidal obsession lodges in his soul
He wants to kill, soon he’ll start
When a man keeps hatred in his heart

Blacksburg, Virginia, 2007
Weapons fired, anguish in heaven
Defenseless victims, one and all
The gunman heeded his demons’ last call
We shook our heads in total disbelief
We searched for answers but found only grief

Chrous: When a man locks hatred in his heart
His thoughts become evil and dark
Unseen voices begin to take control
A homicidal obsession lodges in his soul
He wants to kill, soon he’ll start
When a man traps hatred in his heart

I was a selfish fool
Broke a lot of our rules
How can I even ask
To just forget my past

I’m askin’ anyway
Prayin’ it ev’ry day
Deamin’ I’ve eased your mind
Hopin’ you’re back to find
Chorus: Change, a better me
Change, who I should be
Change, no more mistakes
Change, too much at stake
It’s not easy to know
You felt you had to go
Plenty of unkind words
I didn’t soothe your hurts

I’ve learned so much by now
Renewed my wedding vows
Beggin’ on bended knee
Givin’ another plea

Chorus: Change, a better me
Change, who I should be
Change, no more mistakes
Change, too much at stake

I understand too well
You were livin’ my hell
Many tears fell, you left
Since then, I’ve had regrets

I can see where I’ve been
Not goin’ there again
Let’s rewrite our hist’ry
The best is yet to be

Chorus: Change, a better me
Change, who I should be
Change, a better us
Change, not like it was
Change
