Cater To the Crazy

Updated on August 14, 2017

Lets go ahead and say it, this world is getting crazy

Media feeding from the tubes of these people acting without boundaries

Killing for no reason, leaving those behind to suffer and act why

Is there a point to these tragic deaths these people have to die

When did respect for each other start to dim like a workshop light

And why are these cowards targeting those prepared for the fight

And as the media twists and turns the facts that are hidden

Yet apologize when they get it wrong and think they'll be forgiven

Bombs and guns an industry that seems to be on the rise

As the body counts of innocent victims as the lose their lives

Politics, religion and race wars divide us even more

Our children's future may not ever be restored

And it is so easy to point a finger or two

As long as the finger is not pointed at you

And when did we lose our lessons of right and wrong

Killing cops is the lyrics from some new song

With have lost our directions to the life we are supposed to live

Where killing has become easier than asking one to forgive

Over 6 billion people, a human race that we all see

Imagine if we all could love and respect, what a different world this could be

      Ryan, you express some very real concerns of many of us. What has happened to our world. Some alien looking down at us would indeed think how crazy our civilisation had become. Things do need to turn around and people need to start caring about one another. Thanks for expressing these thoughts.

      Angel, I agree. We have lost morals and respect and it just seems to be getting worse.
