"God Save Us All" as written by and Lenny Albert Kravitz....
We need a leader
We can't seem to help ourselves
Fighting and lying
We can't seem to let it go
We live each day
On a small piece of borrowed time
Why aren't we trying
To enjoy this crazy ride
What are we gonna do about it ?

God save us all
God save us all
God save us all
If we really try
Maybe we can make it

We need a teacher
We must learn to see the light
Let's get together
This world needs us to do right
There's too much poverty, sickness
There's pain and strife
Why aren't we trying
To improve this thing called life
What are we gonna do about it ?

God save us all
God save us all
God save us all
If we really try
Maybe we can make it

    General CommentThis song is about changing society so we can better enjoy life and save the world from its problems. Read Krishnamurti !

    General Commentuhm, Krishnamurti is not God I think and in this song Lenny expresses a frustration. Why isn't the world improving while attempts have been made in the past? Maybe we can try again! But then again we need a teacher, who will teach us? And again an outcry to God... maybe if we really try...

    I think personally it is in vain but we got to keep striving. But we must expect all things from God. Do what we can, and God will do the rest.

    General CommentGood song. The world is in such a dire state and I think this song is inspired by it. Humanity is every person in the world and while we all no matter what our circumstances are can do something to help better the places that surround us. Yet, people waste their opportunity to make a difference by being selfish and then people aren't unified.

    There isn't any way the problems in the world will be solved unless people come together and can find a solution together. It sounds sappy/cliche but it's true. People need to step up and do what they can or else life will slowly continue to become more difficult for literally everyone. Truth be told, years have gone by and no enormous problems have been resolved so sometimes the last thing you can do is hope that God saves us all.
