Nobody Cares


Fires raging.


Diseases sweeping the nations.

People dying.

Women crying

As their children are swept

Into a world

Where the past is all but lost.

Forgetting where you come from

May be the biggest crime of all.

It’s hard to keep going on

Because I can’t find any good songs.

They’re all about making love

At the bar,

In the street on the car.

There’s no dignity anymore.

‘Cause saving yourself is ‘Old Fashioned.’

No one cares

If they get STDs.

Welcome to the 21st Century.
