I long for a life where the wilderness strives
One where unity is the focus of our lives
Living with the trees, instead of cutting them down
No more pollution, in which we all drown.
A wild world with life so lush
No corporations, or a 9 to 5 rush.
I want to feed a moose from out of my hand,
And walk barefoot on pristine sand.
I want to breathe fresh air full of natural scent
Not have a landlord screaming for rent
Unfortunately that dream life is unattainable
Because our society is far from sustainable.
If life is what we make it, why are we in decay?
Is it a sign of our doing; did we go astray?
We talk about the planets rescue, then we argue and fight.
While we’re at our differences, this goal is never in sight.
Our political rules damper the chance, to cure our problems so,
Society doesn’t really help either, when morals are consistently low.
Is there a fix, is there a way, to actually save ourselves?
Or are we destined to be extinct fossils, that are found on another being’s shelf?
Oil so we can get far,
Fake food for hunger’s pain.
Luxury for a status rank,
Money for power’s gain.
A system of lies,
A life of lustful greed,
This world is born of hatred,
Yet we allow it to breed.
Assemble the masses for tv shows,
Hidden agendas of ignorance and hate.
In the minds of our children it grows,
Evil that resides from mindless debates.
Mankind and its corruption,
The way we live our lives,
Theres no one to stop it,
Cuz freedom isnt what money buys.
