Speak Up!

By
What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
Someone tell me why today
Another girl had a baby today
Was it her fault did she want it
Did she wrap up to protect her body
From teen pregnancy and having sex
Who knows what’ll happen next

What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
Someone tell me why today
They have to fight for their rights today
In Tibet they fight for freedom
From China who won't give it to them
When we take so much for granted
While they fight for their lives
It’s all just madness

What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
Someone tell me why today
The gas prices are high today
And we wonder how we’ll get the money
The cars on “E” and the kids are hungry
We need to get to work to pay the bills
With the prices going up
It’s so hard to live

What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
Someone please tell me why today
It’s hard to get a job today
No one wants to hire so the best thing now
Is to stay in school don’t play around
Because Wendy’s, Burger King, and Mickey Ds
Is not the best thing if you see what I mean
So go on and get a degree

What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
Someone please tell me why today
Another fight broke out today
Because some kids don’t know how to act
If you ask me they’re all just whack
For starting fights over nothing
Making it hard for kids who try to make it

What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
Someone tell me why today
The community’s not good for the youth today
When we have no real place to go
It’s why some kids are selling drow
Getting high and smoking weed
Getting shot up on the street
Speak up someone to help me

What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
Someone tell me why today
Another black man died today
With gang violence
And drugs on the street
It makes it hard for us to sleep
With the one thing on our mind
Like will I die from another crime

What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
Someone tell me why today
Another girl got raped today
With petafiles running the streets
It makes it hard for kids to be
Outside playing and having fun
With the thought on their mind
Of getting snatched up

What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
Someone tell me why today
My friend lost his mom today
With all these new drugs
No one can keep up
When the enlarge parts of your body
Make you loose weight instead of the hard way
People are dying
And don’t know what to do
With cancer in their bodies
The pain they go through
Why cant a doctor make a drug and make money
Fighting the common diseases
And help somebody


What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
Someone tell me why today
My friend dropped out of school today
With the over crowded schools today
It’s hard for kids to learn today
When the teacher doesn’t care today
If you pass their class or fail today

So someone please tell me today
What’s wrong with the world today
Someone please speak up today
And someone tell me why today
We go through these problems today
And no one tries to help today
Fix all that’s going on in this world
So I’m speaking up
A new voice to be heard
