I see it on tv watch it everyday
Men with no conscience don't care who they slay
Children killing children for insult or greed
Don't want what they have don't know what they need

Shot for a dollar or the color of your car
You try to find justice you won't get far
Too many families living on the street
Too many babies with nothing to eat

To clear the land they build a wall of fire
To get their way they use a gun for hire
Just trying to do the best I can
To live in this heartless land

So many people doing without
They have no power no political clout
Cutting down the forest, killing off the seas
Don't look to the future they just do what they please

Chorus repeat

We got to stand up find another way
To solve these problems it gets worse every day
Hand in hand as hard as it seems
We can save ourselves and our children's dreams

Chorus repeat

I'm trying to live we got to learn to forgive
I'm doing my best - don't you know - to live in this heartless land
