In A World Where Money Only Matters

When your amount of money can say more about you than words of you can ever say
It does not speak volumes of the society that we have to live in today
If that only speaks of our true worth it does not say much for humanity
When you say money only matters you seem spiritually bankrupt to me.

In a World where money only matters how poor indeed we all must be
Not surprising that so many people are living in dire poverty
If a few have the most of the money what does that mean for the majority
They struggle just for to make ends meet and they are poor financially.

In this 21st century of big Corporations we now have the privileged few
The wealthy are only growing greedier as more millions in cash they pursue
And thousands they have to grow poorer for every new millionaire
And for millions all around the World about life there is nothing fair.

When we are valued by our worth in money we surely are spiritually poor
The wealthy they keep getting wealthier and for the disease of greed there is no cure
And thousands every day dying of starvation and thousands are dying of disease
And in the refugee camps of the World there are thirty million refugees

In A World Where Some Have Too Much

Poets have sung of royal monarchs and of pomp and ceremony
And many of these poets now famous live on in literary history
But the poets who wrote for the poor people their names few wish to recall
Life has been this way for centuries and things may never change at all.

We still have the rich and famous and the elite society
And those who see them as superior promote inequality
And the rich are getting richer and the poor poorer sad to say
In a world where many people die of hunger every day.

One can't blame the starving millions if they see life as unfair
And a thousand must get poorer just to make one millionaire
And the middle class disappearing they too losing out to greed
In a world where some have too much there is hunger, want and need.

In a world where some have too much there is sadness and despair
Once great cities destroyed by bombings, buildings damaged beyond repair
And the poor are left to suffer and their homes have been destroyed
And the maimed without a future and the lucky all have died.

In a world where some have too much hunger and disease is rife
People eat what others throw out just to hang in there in life
People in their early thirties already looking old and gray
In a world where some have too much there is much social decay.

In a world where some have too much there is inequality
And the slums are getting bigger and there's widespread poverty
And the poets who sung of royalty and pomp and ceremony
Many of them now quite famous live in literary history.

In All Of Our Lives

In all of our lives the changes have been happening the Mayan calendar says the end not far away
Another Country bombed more displaced people and the World keeps getting smaller every day
Have the so called Super Powers the right to destroy our Planet and in so doing inflict suffering and pain?
By trying to destroy the Earth ourselves we'll only destroy
and the Planet we once lived in will remain.

In a just society there should be no such a thing as famine
and for food people should not have to compete
In drought ravaged parts people die in their thousands whilst others have far more than they can eat
I'm one of those you would consider lucky I've not been born in a drought ravaged Land
And why a few tycoons grow wealthier and thousands die of hunger is something that I will never understand.

In all of our lives great changes are occuring and Earth's beauty withering like a poisoned flower
Men dropp their bombs and cause widespread destruction and kill their own kind in their lust for power
And refugees before the gun men fleeing in war the poor and innocents their scant possessions lose
Those with the power are often the most callous and the great power at their disposal they abuse.

In all of our lives the changes have been happening the Mayan calendar predicts our end as such draws nigh
When Mankind drops their bombs on Mother Earth who feeds us
it's not great Mother Earth they will destroy
No but themselves for Earth will survive without man and when no trace of human kind is to be found
Mother Earth will create new life forms more friendly to her
and she'll still exist for she has always been around.

In All Of Us

In all of us there is a craving to succeed
Yes in every one of us there is this need
That one day we will be wealthy and famous
And people of us will want to hear and read.

In all of us there's this need for recognition
Though that desire not all of us does show
'Tis human to wish to be loved by others
That even strangers you would want to know.

'Tis human to wish you'd be seen as special
And you'd be famous in the World out there
That your fame would be known in every Country
And you would not be a stranger anywhere.

In all of us there's a wish to be famous
Though in many that may be a latent desire
That people in all Countries would know of you
And you'd be one they would greatly admire.
