A dark place this world is.
Where the hearts of people turn to stone.
Where the souls of people fade away.
Where people kill and people die.
Where people scream and people cry.
A dark place this world is.
Where homes are invaded.
Where valuables are taken.
Where the safe place to most is no longer safe.
Where the secret sanctity is discovered.
A dark place this world is.
Children are no longer safe.
Teenagers run wild in the streets.
Adults lose the power they once had before.
Elderly are no longer wise.
People of the world, come forth and listen.
Hear me speak, children of the Earth.
Our world as we know it is being destroyed.
We are ruining what was given to us.
We are running the world into the ground.
We, ourselves, ruler of this land, are burning it down.
A dark place this world is.
Where those who run it…ruin it.
