well I've got something to say

about the human race.

The world to me

is a total disgrace.

There's people gettin' high,

there's people gettin' killed.

I believe god's word

isn't being fulfilled.

All the special things

he left here for his people.

their stealin' from the poor,

their stealin' from the steaples.

Babies are cryin'

and babies are dyin'.

I think I'm losin' faith,

this violence I'm not buyin'.
