Look at the world around you,
Tell me what you see -
A little boy crying
and humans wanting peace
terrorist attacks
and war in Afghan and Iraq

Don't you want this to stop;
and not ever come back.
To have peace -
where noone is on the streets.

The druggies and gangs
should be so ashamed -
to have not lived a life
the emotions harden and freeze
and it won't be hard to not breathe

the addiction is fast
and death is slow -
just let it all go

And then you wonder
and look up -
to the one that you love most
you don't want them to hurt; in pain
and don't want them to ever go
but you know they have to
you know it's there time

then you feel ashamed
and all left out
because God didn't take you -
and you wanted to leave
so that day the world moves slow
and you had a dream

People smiling -
on the streets walking by
laughing and having a good ol' time
No war, no terrorists,
nothing bad at all
everything was fine
everything, well

Woken up with a sudden shudder
you believed in yourself -
and now with the others
the dream enlightened you
you started to pray -
that someday, sometime
a difference would be made.
