Values

Living in a world that lost meaning Where being righteous is demeaning Where the truth is shut out, never to be heard Where lies are in all our spoken words Living, are we really? Can we speak our minds freely? Can we embrace the good in human nature? Why must we live with hollow titles and fake forms of stature? Loyalty, was betrayed by his best friend Friendship, is no longer in style or trend Faith's roots were ripped from the earth Innocence now, is lost instantly at birth Betrayal has become a common fate So is having a friend that you hate Blasphemy is everyone's belief Corruption became the road to success, not failure nor grief We've become soulless beings pointlessly roaming the land Selfish and vain, believing we're meant for something grand But losing values only brought darker days Darkness enveloping the world as it decays My only haven, is singing blues It is my escape, from a world with no values
