Of our reality
Rests on a loss of morality
More and more I see the shame
Every partner points the blame
Accountability leaves the brain
While innocent youth are going insane
Who will put a stop to this endless war?
Our family unit needs to be restored
Who will stand up and say it’s enough
The counterfeit lie that they have to be tough
Searching for love in all the wrong places
Can’t fill that void with different faces
Selfish pursuits and hopeless endeavors
Ultimately leaves ones soul lost in forever
The vanity… is insanity
Its society’s physical profanity
When will our hearts melt once more?
When will we love what we were made for?
We swore we wouldn’t repeat our parent’s mistakes
And now our neighborhoods are filled with a bunch of
That make big mistakes
Not man enough, to own up, get healed and be right
Obsessions have taken over righteous appetites
The quick-fix seems to be the common way
If we humbled ourselves and repentantly prayed
The voids would subside
We would not have to hide
And Gods light would transform
Every self-inflicted storm.
