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.
