poor man cry out to his god
his dying and hungry
rich man have a heart attack
worrying about his money
he alienates himself from his family
and points the blame in some other direction
the other never had no one
he only needed affection

from one end of the world
to another I hear them say
they need to find a piece of inner protection
a remedy to take their hurt away
in their on minds they failed
you see them fallen

one shot left at redemption
has got them calling

    General CommentHere's the full lyrics:

    Poor man cry out to his god
    His dying and hungry
    Rich man have a heart attack
    Worrying about his money
    He alienates himself from his family
    And points the blame in some other direction
    The other never had no one
    He only needed affection

    From one end of the world
    To another I hear them say
    They need to find a piece of inner protection
    Some remedy to take their hurt away
    In their own minds they failed
    You see them fallen
    One shot left at redemption
    Has got them calling

    A bad man trades aid across the land
    No regard for anybody
    A sad man been broken to the bone
    He's been beaten and so bloody
    He's tortured by his past and present life
    He's living in color delusion
    He only lost someone close
    He's walking in total confusion

    From one end of the world
    To another I hear them say
    They need to find a piece of inner protection
    Some remedy to take their hurt away
    In their own minds they failed
    You see them fallen
    One shot left at redemption
    Has got them calling

    Well I try to be good
    I know why I know I should but doesn't matter
    As I watch as this world falls down the evolutionary ladder
    And yet I still find time to say
    "People don't listen today"
    That's what I said. Said. Said

    Shout down your love there
    Shout down your love to them (Ha) to them (Ha)
    Shout down your love there
    Shout down your love to them (Ha) to them (Ha)
    The world of competition there is one thing you can go on
    It's your faith now
    That's what I said. Said

    Shout down your love there
    Shout down your love to them (Ha) to them (Ha)
    Shout down your love there
    Shout down your love to them (Ha) to them (Ha)
    In a world of competition there is one thing you can go on
    It's your faith now
    That's what I said.
