“The world is yours to save.”
That’s what they always say,
But we just shrug our shoulders;
Putting it on a list for another day.

“The world is yours to save.”
But when will people actually try?
When the Earth’s dead,
And our children are asking us why?

“The world is yours to save.”
Does that mean I’m a hero?
The answer to that,
Would be a no.

“The world is yours to save.”
But does any body truly care?
I’m asking this to people all around me;
To people everywhere.

“The world is yours to save.”
Our high school teachers tell us,
But no ones listening,
As they get on their bus.

“The world is yours to save.”
Just shake your head;
Just walk away.
Maybe you’ll regret this one day as you lay in your bed.

“The world is yours to save.”
Why is it just ours because you know its you who,
You live on this Earth as well,
So it’s yours to save too.


“The world is yours to save.”
That’s what they always say,
But we just shrug our shoulders;
Putting it on a list for another day
