A Troubled World

Behind every door, you'll find a window But what you find might not come so simple... Sudden surprises, split second mistakes Who's to know what hearts will break Farfetched ideas, practical jokes Make-believe, a life ending hoax Constant moaning, tax collectors phoning Diseases running rapid, aids even roaming Children stop growing, with nobody knowing The world in a spin, while mouths they are foaming Youth they are zoning, trying to get in and see what is going But something so wrong, has ended our song We no longer belong, no one left to be strong It's like a disease that we can't even seize So we stay on our knees, always asking God please Please lend us the keys, to get out and break free So just maube again, I'll be able to see Everything that I can, and am needed to be But to sit here and wait, it has ended our fate Love it comes second rate, nothing left to now take It must be some mistake, no more time to shed hate Or believe what is fake For now it is time to show love for hope's sake
