At what time did love seemingly go out of fashion?
Where and when did we seem to lose the passion?
Those silly little notes we passed when we were younger
are replaced and misplaced by some obscure hunger.
You read about sex every time you pick up a paper
or some debauched congressman and his latest caper.
Is there no shred of simple decency left?
Has the whole world been hopelessly bereft?
At what time did morals simply disappear?
Explain the reason why, you see it isn't quite clear.
Why do we turn a deaf ear to the sins of brothers
beat on our children and defile our mothers.
As time passes by I see a further decay
more and more society continues to slip away
deeper and deeper into the eternal flame.
Does anyone care? Can we not feel the shame?
Each new day brings yet another tragic story
which darkens and detracts from God's glory.
How long I do wonder till that day will come
when we all pay the price of evil's lump sum?
