"Oh My God" as written by and Darren Jay/sixx Ashba....
She was born at 6am on New Year's Day
In an alley right at the heart of where the homeless children play
And the truth is that we will never even know her name
'Cause as long as we can fill our glasses up, we will look the other way

And it's not that far from here to New Orleans
Where the seemingly forgotten people are still foreclosing on their dreams
And we'd just as soon keep on staring at the TV screen
While this world she bleeds to death like some romantic end to a movie

Oh my God, this is insane
How'd it get like this, or has it always been this way
Oh my God, I'm so ashamed
That we try to close our eyes and make this go away

And we sit in our high-rise apartments and complain about things that don't matter
And we race through this life just to see who can die with as much as we can gather
And a few blocks away a teenage mother plays Russian Roulette with her daughter
Is this the best that we can do, is this the best that we can do

Oh my God, this is insane
How'd it get like this, or has it always been this way
Oh my God, I'm so ashamed
That we close our eyes to make this go away

We just turn our heads away

    My InterpretationThis song is a very deep and moving song, the whole song is about how greedy and slow to help we are as human beings. There is still suffering and sadness in places not so far from our homes, yet we do nothing to help. He consistently asks if what we're doing now really is the best that we can do to help, because he knows that everyone could do more to help, but are unwilling to because we want some form of reward in a monetary or materialistic form. I truly believe that we all can do something to help out others. Even the little things can help.

    General Commentthis song is rly emotional. It talks about how good all of us have it compared to others. We close our eyes from it and pretend it doesnt exist and we refuse to help because we want something material in response. We dont need anything physical...just the feeling of helping someone when they really need it should be good enough
