    Whoa Lawd......... Temptation, enticement, so alluring, I can't fight it...
    Whoa Lawd..........Ruining, destroying, eradicating, our community...
    Whoa Lawd..........Penitentiaries, institutions, locking away our youth.
    What are we to do in a world where no one seems to care...
    Whoa Lawd..........Lost, impoverished, straying way off path.
    Whoa Lawd..........Addicted, obsessed, minding less and less
    Whoa Lawd..........Robbing and killing, not caring about living.
    What are we to do in a world where no one seems to care...
    Whoa Lawd..........Hunger, Unemployment, mama's son in deployment
    Whoa Lawd..........Diseases, unprotection, taking dares when we sexing.
    Whoa Lawd..........Depression and suicide, I might as well just die
    What are we to do in a world where no one seems to care...
    Whoa Lawd..........Sons and Fathers, spread so far apart
    Whoa Lawd..........Daughters and Mothers not close enough
    Whoa Lawd..........Education and learning, children keep yearning
    What are we to do in a world where no one seems to care...
    Whoa Lawd..........Shooting and Killing, Lives not worth living
    Whoa Lawd..........Brother against Brother, loud cries from their Mothers
    Whoa Lawd..........Babies having Babies, before they become ladies
    What are we to do in a world where no one seems to care...
    Whoa Lawd help us all...
