Days Wasted


Days wasted, in a world full of hurt

Sitting taking advantage of your right to be calm

An angel cries when a shovel hits the dirt

A kid overseas gets killed by a bomb

Everything here is so easy

The people representing us so sleazy


Days wasted, but how do I stop it

Stop all of these military drones

Terrorism that's the crime they commit

Think about this cruel reality while sitting in your home

A kid in his room crying about his mommy who is "lost"

A life that's what all of this may have cost


Days wasted, I've been guilty myself

But every second being an oppurtunity 

Tell me what else?

Is your mind doing opposed to helping a community

Changing the world for the better

That's something we could do no matter the weather


Days wasted, what else can I do

I've lost brothers and sisters to these acts

These crimes can be stopped but it's up to you

Crying won't help because these are the facts

Stand up and SHOUT

Show them that they need to be out!
