Hatred's Too Easy
Words, Music, Vocals and Guitar by Cassendre Xavier

Moonlight and angelfire
Glow in your eyes tonight
I hope that we don't 
Why must always

Father does not approve
Friends are supportive
And mother will tolerate
As long as we're happy

We look at differences
We listen for accents
We read the words that folks are called
But what's in a name

We seem a lot alike
More often we're different
I think we would even fight
If we all looked the same

Walking through the mire
Knees deep in falseness
We don't seem to ever tire
When we walk together

Patience is difficult
Silence is golden
And anger's not always bad
But hatred's too easy
