Looking At The World Through MY Rear View Mirror

Looking at the world through my rear view mirror
I'm at a different level
Alone, all by myself, eyes full of tears
Thinking of the friends I had to bury
What has this world become?
Men liking men and women liking women
I know God angry, I can feel his anger
Through the lighting that cracks through the sky
But nobody cares; the world is so lost a lot of people are confused
Don't know what to do, so they follow their instinct and end up in trouble
Dear Lord please help us because it’s so many black males dying
Before they reach the age of twenty  
 
I’m losing peers as if we were on a battlefield
I wonder what will it take for us to change
To stop the murders and let the kids grow seeing a better side of the world
through my rear view mirror smiling because I'm not broke no more
Nobody has to struggle no more we're all rich and making money
But my dreams will never come true
It will always be the opposite won't have peace instead
We will still have violence, young fathers dying
And don't even have a chance to raise their kids
What will it take for the world to be a better place?
When children can go outside and play without worrying about getting
shot
Parents don't have to sweat because they know that their child is safe
But I guess life will teach us in a major way
I will keep living my life to the fullest
For I don't know when is my last day but through It all I'm still standing
and proud to say that I'm still alive looking at this crazy world through my
rear view mirror
