The state of our planet


All the world does listen, when a tsunami does break,
The politicians all make plans, when oil is at stake.
Silence falls on the earth, when a plane does crash,
A country is in trouble, lets throw them some cash.

We all stand in union, when an earthquake does hit,
The mess of the world, the fuse has been lit.
Pure horror on our faces, when gunman kills a child,
The cities are in flames, as rioters do run wild.

All the world does listen, when a volcano does erupt,
The politicians all make plans, but too many are corrupt.
Looks of sadness on poor, with no money for food,
This world is a shambles, when Good Samaritan is sued.

We all stand in union, as another disaster does unfold,
The mess of the world, with lies they have told.
Words they do fail me, all promises are too late,
A nation that is crushed, a people turned to hate.

All the world does listen, but they do not act,
The politicians all make plans, and that is a fact.
We boil up the planet, we destroy all the good,
A world that's on fire, just because found we could.

We all stand in union, we need to have voice,
The mess of the world, yet there's still a choice.
Words of silence do fall, as we stand and stare,
The state of the land, wish I was not there.
