Lyrics

For Lack Of a Better World


There is silence in the still waters
where lost in the shadows our dreams lie asleep
No one dares ask why they don't waken
because the heart knows the wounds are too deep

FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORLD
people starve in desert heat.
FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORLD
kids buy crack out on the street.
TV slander, corporate lies,
hopeless anger, tortured cries,
a heart falls to defeat
FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORLD

FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORLD
some are condemned at birth.
FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORLD
some think they own the earth.
Crowded prisons, racial hate,
Greenhouse gases, it's too late
cause someone died today
FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORLD

What kind of world is this we're creatin'
where the trust of a child is battered and broken?
What kind of life can we expect
when seeds of compassion are fed with neglect?

FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORLD
we see foes where there should be friends
FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORLD
we're all losers in the end
Look around with open eyes;
it won't take long to realize
it's time to make amends
FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORLD
