The World Hit Stop

The world hit stop
Just as we reached a new frenzied top
Ego driven materialistic quagmire
Fight and work for stuff to acquire
Money and power lies tell
All they want is a chance to sell
To extract and suck dry
Who cares if we pollute both earth and sky

Stranded, isolated, alone
May we will find in our hearts a subtler tone
When the busy world around slows
What matters most quickly starts to show
When we take time to truly breath
We connect to what our hearts truly feel
We find souls passion to another life lead
Faced with eternal human choice
Fight to live free or deprive the world your unique voice
