Shelter – Turn It Around lyrics
So proud of this modern society
With all our brains what did we gain with our technology?
Better wars, cars and VCR's is what they're building for me
But this world's not getting satisfied it's building more
And TV that's for me, our advanced communication
Wasting my time mind and imagination
Station to station- mind devastation
Polluting our youth across the nation
And this is what they're calling civilization
Our leaders push us forward to annihilation
Nation against nation, this is our creation
Intoxicate, inebriate to keep from contemplation
Doctors work on cures for diseases we created
From cancer causing chemicals we dumped and then ate
The birds and bees and trees are now becoming outdated
'Cause modern man's advanced mind is too sophisticated
So proud of our modern sexual liberation
With broken families and unwanted population
Expect three out of four divorces out of any given situation
While the kids are left out for their street education
And so called freedom is obtained by good looks or a gun
And money changes laws no matter what they've done
And the greatest goal in life is to have some fun
At anybody's cost to be number one
Well I'm sick of these lies and denial
If we care out there let's make our arrival
Our twentieth century advancement will go on for a while
How much more will we destroy in the name of survival?
