What Happened to Live and Let Live?

It's sad in our day and age

we have carelessly turned the page

on the beautiful book which is our history

we were once peaceful

now peace seems to be a mystery

the thought of power makes us salivate and crave

so much we are corporate america's little slave

blindly running from place to place

we have become one dysfunctional race

You ask me what would i change?

For america to say yes to peace

and to let the gunfire cease

I'd beg america to do what's right

and end this detrimental fight

that all started from one bad flight

yes 9/11 left us in shambles and dismay

but for the middle east I pray

because 9/11 is their every day
