Words I should have said

The world is filled violence and there’s nothing we can do
Honestly I believe that the first line wasn’t true
We want a better world but we make it so disastrous
The fact that it’s easier to do nothing is just way too monstrous
What is wrong with us, are we really such evil beasts
Treating each other as if we’re each other’s feasts
We want less pain, less garbage and way less crimes
But we had so many chances to end these crazy times
We choose to do nothing but yet we choose to teach
But honestly I think it’s time to practice what we preach
Unless we want to kill ourselves and end the human race
These thoughts really affect my heart; just see the fear upon my face
We want to live forever but we’re causing global warming
We don’t want to die but it’s by the knives and the guns we’re living
They say the youths are the future but I see none
I looked for a place that actually had peace but I couldn’t find one
Drugs and alcohol spread faster than the truth
In fact we cover it up because it wasn’t cute
I know the truth is really ugly but it’s way much better than the world
Children of the world, it’s time to start being a boy or girl
Instead of being monsters doing all this evil
Like if we were puppets of the devil
It’s time to cut the strings and start doing what’s right
And maybe our future may actually be bright
Because unless the world does something the world will be a mess
You can’t expect for something to be clean if we’re just dosed into nothingness
Senselessness, worthlessness; the world is messing up my head
I would rather be dead than take back all these words I should’ve said
