I walk down this street,
To the left,
Fashion and fashion,
To the right,
Those people drooling,
Over what they can't pull off,
In clothes.

I look around,
Every which way,
And all I see,
From my own eyes,
Is the ugliness of the world.

So I ask you this,
What has society become these days?


Every which way I turn,
I see and hear those guns firing away,
At the innocent,
And I don't just mean an actual gun.

Everyone is shouting out,
What they feel should be done.

What has happened to our own society now?

Everyone is fighting over rights,
And what truly is right or wrong.

Everyone is fighting,
Amongst others,
And themselves,
And not knowing who will win these battles.

What has happened to our world?


No one seems to be pleasing everyone,
Or anyone these days.

Every which way I turn,
There is another,
Betraying another.

Everyone seems to be starving,
From something or another,
Either from food,
Or from things they really don't "have."

What has our society been becoming,
All these days?


Every time I turn around,
I see several others fighting,
Over things.

Here and there,
I hear a cry for help,
And yet the cry gets drowned out,
By everyone raising their voices.

Everywhere I turn,
And look,
I see tear filled faces,
Hidden behind all those masks.

Everyone seems "fine,"
And yet all they seem to be doing,
Is dieing all around me.


What has our society even becoming these days?

Every time I step out,
All I see is misery.

All around this world,
All I can seem to see,
Is the pain that troubles it all.

Yet I can barely see,
Those flecks and specks of hope,
From all those people around me.

If we start to work,
With each other,
And learn from each other,
We might get somewhere.

But now I wonder,
What has our society become?


I walk down this street,
And I see the misery all around me.

I see so much ugliness around me,
Where are those pretty days?


All I can really suggest,
As I walk down this street,
And look around,
Is simply this.

Live your life to the fullest,
You never know,
When you might just loose it.

Don't judge too quickly,
You never really know,
The battle someone is fighting.

Don't give up,
On what you believe,
You give up,
You probably then have no more reasons,
Just to live.

Spread joy,
When you can,
Because it will find it's way,
Right back to you.

It's okay to be different,
No one is the same,
So find your own style to live in.

It doesn't matter,
Who the person is on the outside,
What's on the inside,
Is what really counts.


So I ask you again,
Because everyone,
Is going every which way possible,
What has our society become?
So what has it become?

No, no, no!! I did NOT make this to create debate right on this post. If you feel you must comment your own opinion, please do it in a nice/mannered way.

Anyways, this song is inspired by things I have noticed and been through a bit myself. Personally, there are other ways to live besides yelling in each others faces, not that people really do that.

And on a side note, was listening to Lady Gaga's Bad Romance song the entire time I was typing up this song.

Oh and just curious... do any other people find when they are making a song, they can really hear music that goes with it and the lyrics being sung in their head? O.o I find I have that happen to me a fair amount at times.

Yeah
I totally agree with you! Things really could be better, but then again, they could be a whole lot worse.
