Society's Antidote

When little girls are starving,
So they can look like TV models,
There's a problem.

When teenage girlsdress likewhores,
Just to snag a guy's attention,
There's a problem.

When a girl cries herself to sleep,
‘Cuz nobody’s there for her,
There's a problem.

When teens commit suicide,
Because their pain never ends,
There's a problem.

When someone has to cut and bleed,
Just to let their pain out,
There's a problem.

When kids run away from home,
Because their life at home is so bad,
There's a problem.

What has society done to us?
It's slowly poisoned us all,

But if society is poison,
Then where is the antidote?
