The World Today

Maybe the problem is that I'm frustrated.
It's been too long since I felt elated.
I'm in a psychiatric ward, everyone's asleep.
But their eyes are open so it's confusing me.

Maybe I'm the one that's acting kinda' crazy.
I'm so apathetic, if I'm honest I'm kinda' lazy.
Is there any type of point to all this melodrama?
There's too many people looking for a guiding father.

All lies are woven from political lips.
Venom spews, it falls, it froths and drips.
Cellular groups are so tightly woven.
Like a stalking cancer, they're quickly growing.

Division driven from hatred given.
It feeds itself and the cells are splitting.
While we're looking forward the curtains closing.
No act on earth can ever keep 'em open.

We need some water to quench all the flaming.
Upon the stones are the names engraved.
The rest of the world stays a slave.
Working for rest, just keep on dreaming.
