Great strides in our technology
and human rights for us
have changed our lives in many ways
but have we changed that much

Seems we remain the ageless tale
of greed and love of self
midst poverty and pleasuring
with wealthy guarding wealth

there’re politicians promising
and church prescribing faith
but still remains the human core
that fawns our selfish ways

Change has never quickly come
but we hold hope it will
and fight for fairness in the world
yet poor live poorer still

Well there’s no entity on earth
with universal powers
that sure can offer all we need
and keep us safe from harm

Innovative industry
continues to improve
but our intentions for this world
have not gone quite as smooth

Still left to trust in laws and kings
this thought burns in me well
just how will mankind ever change
If I won’t change myself

Before I meet the world I want
and face the harsh milieu
my prayer begins at break of day
Lord I’ve got work to do
