21ST CENTURY
 
How can I feel at ease 
When I know there is no peace
Dead bodies falling from the sky
They ain’t falling on me,
Cause I’m lucky to be free
Why’d so many righteous people have to die
It is true evidently
Many leaders fail to see
Making peace is what we need the most and nothing matters more
Leave the people in the dark
Follow through with no regard
And think you can twist the truth to suit your ugly war
 
21st century  
Take a look, it’s hard to believe
The progress that we’ve made to date
Next to all these atrocities
21st century  
It’s all about expediency
And what some call democracy
Seems just like a joke to me 
 
Tell me what does it imply
If a mother takes her child
To be buried with her refuse because push has come to shove
Could it be at seventeen
That it could have been foreseen
The girl’s not ready to be married to someone she’s never loved
 
It’s a mystery to me
People drowning in the sea
Unimaginable desperation forced a man away
Though his woes may seem so distant
Just how can I feel indifferent 
Can you blame a man for running when his world goes up in flames
 
21st century  
Take a look, it’s hard to believe
The progress that we’ve made to date
Next to all these atrocities
21st century  
It’s all about expediency
What some call democracy
Seems just like a joke to me 
21st century
What will be our legacy
Why is it that apparently
We’re on this doomed trajectory
Why is it that apparently
We’re on this doomed trajectory
Oh just tell me, how come that we
Are on this doomed trajectory
 
Oh, it isn’t hard to see the signs
But sometimes, sometimes our convictions make us blind
Oh, if we can’t find a better way
We may find out just how fast it gets too late    
 
21st century  
Take a look, it’s hard to believe
The progress that we’ve made to date
Next to all these atrocities
21st century  
It’s all about expediency
What some call democracy
Seems just like a joke to me 
21st century
What will be our legacy
Why is it that apparently
We’re on this doomed trajectory
We’re on this
We’re on this doomed trajectory
Just tell me, how come that we
Are on this doomed trajectory
