What kind of world do we live in?

Where a young life

Can be ruined in seconds

By someone who has never spoken a word to them

What kind of world do we live in?

Where everyone only looks out for themselves

And no bothers to repeat or pass on

Anything but lies

What kind of world do we live in?

Where your worst enemy

Can only be yourself

Because perfection has become mandatory

What kind of world do we live in?

Where a child can be driven

To taking their own life

Because another child has been so cruel

What kind of world to we live in?

Where people turn a blind eye

Even though they know it's happening

And they let it happen

What kind of world do we live in?

We live in an imperfect world

But there are no more excuses

For letting the cruelty win
