Verse 1:

Man I can't understand this

Insanity, humanity's incompetence

Drugs bein sold

Homeless out in the cold

Everybody sellin their souls

To the Devil

Watch the drama unfold

There's so much to this story

Some of it may be gory

But it needs to be told

Yeah everybody wants to strike gold

Make it big

Never mind the fact

There's so many poor people in the back

With graves to dig

Momma's losin their sons and daughters

Blood oil and water

Unnecessary slaughter

Man why can't we have world peace

Cease the deceased

Cleanse this world of crime

Put our minds at ease

Hook:

I'm tryin to figure this crap out

Thought I had it all mapped out

But I won't ever back out

I strive for better times

Though the world's cracked out

I won't ever tap out (2x)

Verse 2:

Aiyo

So many people

Think they ain't ever gonna go

Like they too young to die

They holdin on to their foolish pride

Then the next thing you know

A teen gets killed in a drive by

Why?

Cuz the dude was high

No remorse

He's just ridin the course

Of course

What's worse

Is that he has no sympathy of any sorts

A smile on his face

As he's standin in court

That's how messed up the world is

But yo that's just a small sample

Let me give ya another example

Man the list is ample

I wish everybody treated each other fair

But that's more rare

Than someone's surname bein Hample

Yo it's just tragic

Tell me where's the magic

Everybody wantin greens

Like every day's Saint Patrick's

There was this one girl

Who always degraded herself

You wouldn't believe the kind of people

Of which she situated herself

Every guy thinks she's a hottie

She's strung out for cash

So she's sells her body

On the streets prostitutin

Knockin boots and

Never mind the fact

That she's on crack and shootin

Long story short

It was a dangerous game she played

Cuz she now has a whole bunch of kids

At home all alone

Cuz she died of aids

Yo sometimes I sit and pray

That tomorrow will bring no sorrow

That it'll be a good day

But yo that won't happen

Unless we look at ourselves

Look in ourselves

Evaluate our morals

Eliminate the crooks in ourselves

The whole world's headin for Hell

Trapped in an Eternal cell

But I believe in God and that some day

World peace will prevail

All Hail

Tell me what's goin on (4x)
