What Are We Now?

15 01 2010

There isn’t a video for this song as it’s kinda high for me… even though I’m the one who wrote it.  I think I wrote this right after “Empty”, so it’s a few years old now.

What Are We Now?

We built this world
With dirty hands
Deceiving one another
Any way we can

Am I the only one
Who feels this way?
Or is everyone
Being told what to say?

CHORUS

What have we done?
What have we become?
When the world’s been running on lies
And people are being denied for who they are
What are we now?

A homeless man
Stricken with AIDS
I turn on the radio and hear
“Everything’s okay!”

And as he sits on the curb
Receiving glances and stares
What will happen to him?
How many of us care?

CHORUS

What have we done?
What have we become?
When the world’s too busy with wars
And people don’t know what it’s for
And they don’t care
What are we now?

What are we now?

What have we done?
What have we become?

CHORUS

What have we done?
What have have we become?
When the world’s been running on lies
And people are being denied for who they love

What have we done?
What have we become?
When there’s fighting everyday
And how many lives will we pay
Until we can say…

WHAT ARE WE NOW?
