Liner Notes: 

It's hard enough watching news of Putin's Puppet, but what really saddens me is the arguments I see among friends on social media... friends fighting among friends, because of this cancer on our presidency and our country.
At least I finally have my first official entry for 50/90.

Lyrics: 

Contagion of a Hateful Nation

V1
There’s no songs for tomorrow
There’s no gold at rainbows end
There’s no peace among the factions
Hurtful words are shared by friends

V2
There’s a virus that’s gone global
Every corner it has reached
No escaping its conclusion
HATE was sowed… to make us weak…

Ch
Yeah, hate breeds hate – is it too late
To turn the world around…
Hate breeds hate – a Leader waits
Till love has fallen down…

V3
I’ve seen so many rallies – daily tallies
Wrapped in hate
A man who can’t unite us – just divides us
As he waits

V4
He has no moral compass – he will “trump” us
If we’re weak
Only love and understanding – trump the devil
As he speaks…

Ch
Yeah, hate breeds hate – is it too late
To turn the world around…
Hate breeds hate – a Leader waits
Till love has fallen down…

Solo

Ch
Yeah, hate breeds hate – is it too late
To turn the world around…
Hate breeds hate – a Leader waits
Till love has fallen down…

Outro
Hate breeds hate – is it too late?
This sickness we endure…
We have the choice to end it
Only love can be the cure…

Exactly how I feel and you did it so well! It's so upsetting to see so much hate. Great song!

excellent lyric, and you're right on target--- its sad and demoralizing to see all this hate,and lets hope some of this hate gets swept away this November!

I like the next to final line 'We have the choice to end it'. Glad that number one is up on the boards!

Had to check this one out - this stuff is on my mind so much! Good writing! Clear and to the point, good structure and rhyming. Good title and I think the 1st & 3rd lines of the chorus stands out in a powerful way.
