Make The World Go Away
I know my Lord would be saddened to hear me say
'would somebody please make the world go away'
I feel like the weight of it sits square on my shoulders
and the cruelties within it just can't get much colder
If the truth be known, I bet God weeps in His soul
It must seem to Him, things are so out of control
I don't mean to sit here and pretend to know all
But, times are very different from the ones I recall
We lived in a land of plenty, it fulfilled our needs
Now our fields are overgrown with plain ole weeds
Parents took such pride in their homes and families
Now they're facing foreclosures and bankruptcies
Our children would go to sleep with tummies full
Many sleep on the streets now, sweet dreams null
What disappoints me most is the drug use today
I don't mean to step on toes with what I may say
But, firsthand, I am seeing the damage it can do
It's like having a 'death wish' 'cause it can kill too
Maybe they're wanting their world to go away?
I see now how truly sad it is to feel that way
I'm taking back what I said on line two up above
The truth of the matter is, if push comes to shove
I love living in my world, all I need to do is pray
'Dear Lord, forgive me for being negative today
I am so very content in the shelter of your love!'
