These Are the Times We Are Living

By Songbird

 

There are some areas

Where people still suffer from Malaria

Go hungry and drink dirty water filled with bacteria

Well there are those running for their lives in Syria

But here at home we’ve got mass hysteria

Guns running ramped, lives taken for granted

Kids dying inside of their school cafeterias

 

And these are the times we are living

Oh! What has our world become?

When all we wanna do is be selfish

Take selfies and not be giving

And forget those who are helpless

As these are the times we are living

 

See one man on a bike in France

Will attempt to cheat the system

Just so he can advance

Well another will run off at the mouth

So he can have a nation in a trance

Just so he can get into the Whitehouse

And the only difference

Is one will be reprimanded

While the other

His Twitter will have trended

 

And these are the times we are living

Oh! What has our world become?

When all we wanna do is be selfish

Take selfies and not be giving

And forget those who are helpless

As these are the times we are living

 

But we can put a man on the moon

Plan to go to Mars hopefully sometime soon

But we can’t put an end to our wars

But we can put a man behind bars

Or kill him dead and fill him with lead

Just because of the color of his skin

But not a policeman

As he and the law have to always win

But we will leave the poor to starve

The homeless out in the cold wind

 

And these are the times we are living

Oh! What has our world become?

When all we wanna do is be selfish

Take selfies and not be giving

And forget those who are helpless

As these are the times we are living

 

While a homosexual or a transsexual

Is left to defend for who they are

But we’ll bend the rules if you’re a star

And if you come from fortune

But not for a woman if she has an abortion

Oh! No! She is God’s orphan

 

And these are the times we are living

Oh! What has our world become?

When all we wanna do is be selfish

Take selfies and not be giving

And forget those who are helpless

As these are the times we are living
