The fountain

Versions: #1#2
What's wrong with me
I can't find shelter
My own country is enemy field
And you pretend to see, but you don't
 
Wash your hands, for they'll knock at your door
But first you'll see your little children bringing in
the news
 
How many kids were killed this time?
Don't do to others
What you don't want to be done to you
You pretend not to see and it gives cancer
 
I don't know what I'm capable of
Hope, thy sheets smell like disease
And see from the fountain, I'm the miles ahead
 
I celebrate every day
My life and my friends
I believe in myself
And I'm still clean
 
You think you know
But you don't see that evilness is prejudice
What's wrong with me?
I know nothing and I'm still clean
 
Beside the white cypress
To the left of hell's entrance
There's the fountain of oblivion
I'll go further, I won't drink of this water
I get to the lake of memory
Where there's pure and fresh water
I tell the guardions of the entrance
"I'm the son of Earth and Heaven"
 
Give me what to drink, for I have an eternal thirst
Look into my eyes, I'm the torch-man
Take away my shame, liberate me from my guilt
Take this hate out of me, set me free from my fear
 
Look into my eyes, I'm the torch-man
And this is a love song
And this is a love song
 
Thanks!
