Losing My Religion

World is in trouble such terrible strife
Droughts, floods, famine and the drugs are rife
Countries fighting and blowing each other into submission
Can anyone wonder really why I'm losing my religion

Earth is slowly falling apart thing called Global Warming
Humans couldn't care less they won't heed the warning
Cities full of drug addicts and single or unmarried mothers
No hope for the children when people have no time for others

The fathers are in the gutters or sometimes even prison
Is it any wonder really that I am losing my religion

Lived with the love of my life and still I don't understand
After twenty years she just up and left me for another man
Gave her my all, everything my whole heart and my soul
Never even said goodbye to me how could she be so cold

She was my bird of paradise but I was only her stoolpigeon
Surely you understand now why I'm losing my religion

Mother Nature is even angry now she's causing lots of havoc
Time we stood up and took notice, time we started to panic
Such a wonderful world around us but we only show it neglect
Surely, it is never too late to start showing a bit of respect

Lets' all get together and pray start making the right decision
If we show a bit of faith, perhaps we'll stop losing our religion
