.. The world
a planet with sorrow and pain ..
even earth is about to cut through his veins
there is alot going in the world today
earth a place so colorful .. yet in my eyes
the world now looks grey ..
they say history repeats itself ..
a "great depression" is amongst us
and this is just the beginning
wait till we reach the eye of the storm
they come in many sizes .. and this one
can be seen from several miles away
slowly it now takes its form ..
the financial instabilities ...
a proximate cause of World War II ..
is this the destruction of the human rase
the devil is known .. but he now got a face
a new world order .. humanity's disgrace
only the strong will survive
and the weak have to die
what is it they have in mind ?
a holocaust ? ..
the annihilation of thousands ..
maybe millions of people ..
and you say death is a raider ?
who are they to take the life of a stranger
let this be told only by god .. our only savior
Do we gonna have to start all over again ?
first they destroy .. then to rebuild ..
but first half of the world has to be slain
for god's sake imagine the pain we have to gain
.. now ..... are you affraid ?
because this is reality
so best grip your hands together
and now let us pray
and hope for the world ..
to never fade away
