The News

I think my life is so rough
I think my life is too hard
I think that I've got problems that cannot be solved

Then I pick up the paper
And I read about pain
I read about the bomb                    That blew up his plane
I read about the earthquake           In Afghanistan
And I begin to realize                     That I don't have it so bad

I think my life is so rough
I think my life is too hard
I think that I've got problems that cannot be solved

Then I pick up the paper
And I read about pain
About the tropical jungle               That gets acid rain
I read about the flood                    That washed away the town
And I drop to my knees                 Thankin' God I didn't drown

And the pages are filled with death and destruction
About the rainforest razed for       New mall construction
Kosovo bombed                            Women degraded
Animals neglected                         Politicians elected
Identities mistaken                         Religion forsaken
