Tell Me is this the Human Race

Tell me is this the human race

Tell Me Is This The Human Race

Too much corruption

Too much destruction

Everyone’s struggling for power

Tell me is this the human race

Too many people crying

Too many people dying

Are we not sacred anymore

Too much hate

Not enough love, what’s it all for

Politicians in the street

Begging for mercy

Too many guns

Too many wars

We’re losing control

Who are we trying to beat

Oceans are sighing

Trees are falling

Animals pay the price

While we consume the Earth

Like throwing the dice

Gambling our lives away

Too much corruption

Too much destruction

Everyone’s struggling for power

Tell me is this the human race

Short time winners

Long term losers

That’s what we are

If we don’t wake up today

And change our ways

Games people play

Wanting it all

Wanting it now

Doesn’t anyone care

Everyone’s too busy to say

Their lining their pockets

The American way

No one cares anymore

For the human race

Don’t you dare fret to say

Life won’t shrivel away

Because you say you have the key

to destiny

Stop the fighting

Stop the destruction

Stop the lying

Stop the corruption

Stop the cheating

stop the beating

What’s it all for

The human race

Has gone astray

Is it in the stars

Or is it in the moon

Are men werewolfs gone mad

Has reason been lost

Animal instincts have taken control

What’s it all for

With the touch of a button

The game of life could go up in smoke

Are we not gluttons

Stop playing the jokes

Life is not a game

The Earth is alive

And we are killing it

People are alive

And we are killing them

What is it all for

Tell me is this the human race

Hearts are bleeding

Children are disappearing

The dark is coming

Brain washing

Tell me what is it for

Governments selling our souls

Not enough education

Too much poison

Religion crumbling

Civilization falling

Who will be the few

To continue to exist

On planets far away

Mankind will continue

Without you and I

Who will be the elite

At the cost of our defeat

Tell me is this the human race
