Once I saw true happiness
I was standing in the rain
Watching that smile so ageless
The face so free of all pain

But since then so long ago
I’ve never seen happiness so pure
Now all I see is faces twisted by woe
So when you find it, share the cure

Something so ugly, so fake
That’s what I see in today’s faces
All controlled by the money they make
The rich set the poor’s low places

Now tell me why you pretend
To care and lend a hand
When all you care ‘bout is how it ends
And after it all where you stand

So don’t tell me you are hurt
When I call you selfish and vile
Because you treat others like dirt
One day you’ll stand before me on trial

Finally, it’s over now, forever
See how someone so caring
Can be so evil yet clever
He makes you so despairing

Listen for now he is gone
Hear the cries weeping in silence
Trapped in cages for so long
Sacrifices to help the violence

See the child born through war
See the bodies piled high
See the hearts his lies tore
See, how much clearer is the sky?

Help those wounds heal
Help those who have had a fall
Help keep those who kneel
Help them once again stand tall
