We were warned to be aware-We ignored, said we don't care

We were warned to be aware-We ignored, said we don't care
We were warned to be aware
We ignored, said we don't care
We went on, keep doing unfair
We rule, not He how you dare?

Told to be disciplined and be fair
Again we didn't heed to it - impair
Keep living unethically, who cares
Given it a legal status a novel way

Looks we lost wisdom a fancy way
For the sake of Freedom give away
Do whatever we want to a simple say
Social values, give away a black day

Discarded values living an Immoral Way
Who am I to say anything, live anyway
Mindset doesn't accept it says, 'no way'
But we're doing what we want to my way

It will have repercussions on us a big way
I see some sign of but you are a far away!
Time to find out a solution to live a kind way
We began with a reverse journey a blind way
