ever since dissillusionment set in
this world's been collapsing from within
and no one seems to care
about what is right and what is fair
apathy has become strong
and destroyed what some have fought for all along
but how can we find true happiness
when this world is such a mess

does nobody care enough to hear
all the pain and struggle and all the fear
is no one willing to do what's right
or is no one willing to put up a fight
I know what is right, I see the light
I know what I must do, but why don't you

blind to the evidence
their complacence leads them to cowerdice
lacking the nerve to rebel
has made this world a living hell
progession must be allowed
atrocities must be said out loud
why do I make such a fuss
because in the end change is up to us

does nobody care enough to hear
all the pain and struggle and all the fear
is no one willing to do what's right
or is no one willing to put up a fight
I know what is right, I see the light
I know what I must do, but why don't you
