What is the World Today?


                        


What is the world today?
I really don't know.
It is full of hate and destruction.
What is the world today?
It hurts me too actually see,
the pain that swarms around me.

It is irritating to watch all this destruction continue.
Don't know what is wrong with the world today.
It is full of racism and poverty.
Black people trying to be free.

What is the world today?
Don't know.
Pretty soon it's sure to have trees burning everywhere,
And everyone is screaming for help.
And I'm just gonna stand there and tsk-tsk-tsk.

What is the world today?
Do they know the Lord will soon be here?
He will choose who goes to heaven with him
And who would burn in the lake of fire with the Devil.

What is the world today?
