Living in a world that lost meaning Where being righteous is demeaning Where the truth is shut out, never to be heard Where lies are in all our spoken words Living, are we really? Can our minds walk around freely? Can we live without murder, torture or despair? Do people even understand the concept of fair? Loyalty, was killed by his best friend Friendship, is no longer in style or trend Faith's roots were chopped from the earth Innocence is now lost instantly at birth Hate is consuming the land Betrayal, now, has the upper hand Blasphemy is everyone's belief Corruption is officially the greatest thief In chaos, my brain cries My heart thinks, but it fails and dies My only relief, is singing blues It is my escape, from a world with no values
