Lyrics

Downtown in this city desperation thrives
Uptown in suburbia the rich they live good lives
Some walk through life in worn out shoes
Some wear no shoes at all
Some sip wine, eat caviar, watch stocks just rise an fall

Is this karmic destruction
And will Jesus resurrect
Cause we seem to be forgetting laws of cause and their effect

Is this karmic destruction
Do we think time will erase
The guilt of blood upon our hands
As we just fall from grace

Karmic Destruction
Karmic, Karmic, Karmic
Karmic, Karmic, Karmic
Karmic Destruction

Well I just got back from a piece of hell and I lay me down to cry
I say if there's a God listening, well ya got to tell me why
There's angles dying in the streets
There's a little girl hooking every man she meets
Some got everything and some got none
A little boy shot his teacher with a gun

He say I granted you your free will, now it's up to you to choose
To act with the love or act with hate, it's simply up to you
But action has reaction just like fear is lack of faith
So if there's blood upon your hands
It's you who fell from grace

Karmic Destruction
Karmic, Karmic, Karmic
Karmic, Karmic, Karmic
Karmic Destruction
Karmic Destruction
Karmic Destruction
Karmic Destruction
Karmic Destruction


Karmic Destruction - Stripped In Manhattan C.D.
