    Green grass, Blue skies
    Sick people, Sad goodbyes
    Dark days, Empty nights
    People dying, Violent fights
    Frightened kids, Scared moms
    Divorced parents, Lost bonds
    Starving children, bloodthirsty thugs
    Innocent victims, Kids with drugs
    Devil worshippers, Constant crime
    Shot of a gun, nothing is fine
    Confused youth, careless adults
    Child abuse, countless faults
    Selling drugs, peer pressure
    Spreading AIDS, prostitute pleasure
    Daily abduction, victims of rape
    So much pain, Few ever escape
    Turning to suicide, Ending a life
    Psycho path killers, Blade of a knife
    Agony of loss, A broken heart
    Painful love, Being ripped apart
    Homeless people, The joy of hurting
    A love child, So many uncertain
    Pregnant teens, Unstoppable STD's
    Ashamed heritage, So many wannabes
    Sibling hatred, Dangerous obsessions
    Opinionated critics, Unwanted suggestions
    Killing family, Betraying friends
    As today begins, Yesterday ends
    Hopeless tomorrow, Doubtful future
    Destroying the mind, Sickening humor
    Never-ending sickness, Too much disease
    Does it ever stop? Someone tell me please
    Animal torture, A newborns cry
    Abandoned infants, Do we even try?
    Sleeping around, Simply for lust
    Deceitful lovers, Losing all trust
    Breaking the law, Getting away
    Courtroom injustice, It's the victims who pay
    Who is wrong? Who is right?
    Criminals admired? Have we lost sight
    Broken families, Few who pray
    The doubtful outlook, Getting by each day
    Forgotten morals, Money hungry fools
    Disgraceful greed, Those who use
    So many questions
    Yet so few answers
    The wanting to know
    Happens much faster
    When did it happen?
    How did it start?
    Who is to blame..
    For letting our world fall apart?
