I am sick of this world
Technology has gone wild
I miss the peace of mind
I used to have as a child

Everyone seems so busy
Having somewhere to go
Information running rampant
But what do we really know?

The violence is never ending
Greed is the name of the game
Technology keeps on evolving
Human nature remains the same

Genghis Khan with atom bombs
Terrorism is more than a crime
Nuclear weapons will be used
It is all just a matter of time
