How can anyone sleep at night
When the world is in such a mess
We try to ignore all the hunger the oppression
The cruelty the torture the distress.
How can we simply get on with our lives
When we know so many are in pain
What’s happened to compassion
How come no one cares
This world is crazy and insane.
We all seem to hate one and other
Only looking out for ourselves
We cheat and lie we’re cunning and sly
Stealing all we can from the shelves.
We pretend to be loving and caring
When really we couldn’t care less
We destroy all that’s good sucking everyone’s blood
With never any blame or redress.
We love all the drama and gossip
We revel in negative news
We feed off the slime like a fat greedy swine
Swimming in drugs and booze.
