The despair of this world brings tears to my eyes;
how do we survive in this land full of lies?
Torn now asunder; cloven in twain;
a world full of hatred writhing in pain.
Fascism rises on every side;
there’s nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
Where will it all end, a land torn in two;
how can we be real and find truth anew.
A fractured society with no peace of mind;
in this world of hate, is there love to find.
We’ll all pay the Piper for what we have done;
for the hatred and pain that we have begun.
Conflict doesn’t work ‘cos nobody wins;
it’s just a deep hole where we throw our sins.
The cesspool of life that will haunt our days
unless we wake up; change our wicked ways.
