    It's time to face facts,the truth.
    Believe it or not if we don't we'll all lose.
    For example:it really hurts.
    That we have the nerve to broadcast people to survive are living out of garbage dumps and eating dirt.
    In some of these countries which produce billions.
    Are starving to death in milllions.
    Governments fighting over land,money,power.
    While starvation,AIDS killing by the hour.
    Billions of dollars sent to countries that produce absolutely nothing,on planes and weapons to kill.
    Money falling in ignorant hands determining who dies who lives.
    Everyday billions spent here billions spent there.
    Leaders of the world,you dare not say you care.
    Control,control, control,will be the head-on collision.
    To gain is to destroy a fatal decision.
    Countries ration out what they think you need.
    Their signature of that ugly word greed.
    Families infected with all types of disease,with little or no hope.
    But we turn right around spend billions of dollars pretending to stop the flow of dope.
    People in countries with more money than they can ever spend.
    Some ease their conscious give to any charity,in some cases only to make someone else rich within.
    People always saying first of all I thank God.
    When the lights go down they once again forget the Lord.
    Remember material things will be lost and will be gained.
    To really thank God save your words and change things.
    It's no crime to enjoy life and live nice.
    But if we don't get our act together we as a whole will surely pay the price.
    Rid that brainwash mentalility I got mine you get yours.
    Think I mean just really think about it,you standing there looking at the closing of God's doors.
    (FREE WILL) given God will never revoke.
    Knowing the children well soon we'll cut our own throat.
    If we keep creating diseases to kill, wars to steal.
    You'll be lucky to have time to feel.
    Understand power and riches that's man desire.
    Whether you believe in God or maybe you don't(nuclear power)you've been warned about the fire.
    So look around then search your soul,you might just shake your head.
    And then again you need to be shown what happens to you when you're dead.

    People may thank God, but they often don't think of him until there's no where else to turn. Deeply written.
