A believer with no religion.
I believe we are heading in the wrong direction.
Shoulders heavy with the weight of this burden, but we just keep polluting until the world stops turning.
until we see the light in our childrens eyes stop burning.
See the sky so black we can't breathe.
No where to go can't pack up and leave.
politicians for the people, thats a joke.
The rich get rich and the broke get broke.
No one can see the light through this haze and this smoke.
Drunk's, junkies, gangs, violence and sleaze.
Murderer's, Paedophile's, rapist's and priests.
Preaching that we must be forgiven before our souls can be released.
Differing religion's give the chance for hate to breed.
One wrong word and the media spreads that seed.
Turn people into drone's
So we sit in front of the idiot box and feed.
And all we do is sit back and wallow in greed.
Pollute the world, multiply and breed.
The weight of the world is on the shoulders of a few.
