as time goes by this world grows cold

as time goes by our morals get old

the teenage body infested with drugs

our cities streets filled with thugs

sunday has become just another day (supreme court hearing, attempt to take God out of the pledge)

and marriages have turned from straight to gay

hearing the filth and cuss that comes from our people's mouth

seeing the innocent victims flooded in the south (Katrina)

no faith in our government, no faith in our leader (Pres. Bush at the time)

people playing the stock market like a bunch of cheaters (Enron)

what's wrong with the world? what's wrong with this place?!

whatever happened to God's loving grace

banished from schools and books alike

its like telling your master to "take a hike"

Borders are crossed so people complain (dispute over mexican border)

the middle east is a beast that we must contain (war on terrorism)

so money is spent on those with the problem

but when it is our turn the critics become solemn

gas prices go up more and more

the extra dollar is worth not fighting another war

So we can all sit back and just smell the flowers

do nothing and complain about those in power

This world is crazy and its people are nuts

this place needs some good people to show some guts
