The visions on the screen haunt my waking hours
People suffering in so many ways, so many places
It’s hard to fathom it all
My heart cries and my voice shouts at the screen
The world is mad, I tell myself
The compassion and humanity I yearn to see, replaced by desensitization
What ever happened to the Great Australian nation?
Men in suits with agendas that have nothing to do with the chaos
Twisting their words, spun into grand ideals that bare no fruit
When did the public voice go unheard?
Even the average Joe knows dropping bombs won’t solve a thing
It’s a war that no one can win
