The politicians lie/ to lengthen their regime
Am G E7
The corporations buy/ souls for profit
The factories breathe acid/ and leak into the stream
And every day the earth gets hotter,/ who will stop it?
Am Em Am
Oh God of love and justice, let your will be done!
Newscasters amuse,/ distracting from the truth
The advertisers use/ sex for profit
Entertainers choose/ to seduce our youth
Life gets cheaper every day/, who will stop it?
Terrorists plot violence/ and governments do too
Scientists and engineers/ improve our kill-power
Parents sit in silence/, not knowing what to do,
Who will stir the dying embers/ of good-will power?
The churches pray for peace/ but then they vote for war
The preachers preach for profit/ and twist our story
No wonder people don’t/ believe anymore
They’re waiting for good news/ of hope and glory
The human race is building/ a suicide machine.
The people cheer and dance /as gears are turning.
When will we wake up from/ this self-destructive scheme
So everything can change … God’s kingdom coming!
