This sickness that we sippin, is killin all of our children
Diseases, famine, and outrageous prices of livin
If we only live to rule the world, what kind of world are we buildin
We abstain from community, what shall the children live in
Overseas people dying at the lack of our abundance
They have faith through their despondence and will quickly do a sun dance
On our end – we’re ejecting God out of our culture
Raising a generation full of self warmth with cold shoulders
In our own land, we hate each other, and condone slavery
Better watch what you say to me, because of my insecurity
Meanwhile not far away from me, some girl’s getting pumped with STDs
Some woman is getting raped despite her mournful screams
How can we help the needy if we can’t stop being greedy?
How can we find depravity, and shut it down, if in it we are sinking?
This world is a ship that’s going down – its salt water we’re drinking…
The more we sip, the thirstier we get
Misnamed ambition, but what it is, is sin
Toxic work conditions, deadly toxins when you breath in
But you have to support your family, so you forfeit all your oxygen
America sports the clothes, spun by battered and wounded 5 year olds
We just turn up our nose, and say “that’s just how it goes.”
Kids dying of thirst, in mid-step to the water
Say that to ten people, and not one of them will falter
Humanity’s in a war, and we’re taking heavy losses
Wading through dead bodies – the casualties are all around us
We’re fighting our own nature, but have shifted to fighting ourselves
If we but shelf our rights, we might, curb this tendency to fail
Like it or not, you are an armed and capable warrior
The question is – are you for you or for the army?
Imagine humans in phalanx formation – what would you worry for?
The worst thing to be is a soldier in limbo – good for nothing, and to nobody.
