HUMANITY

(MANNY FREISER)
August 25, 2018

The populism that is 'sweeping western countries' is the harbinger of really bad news for all of us -- especially in this era of renewed nuclear proliferation. Populist leaders ironically claim to be the 'voice of the people.' But once voted into power by the frustrated working class, they morph into totalitarian strongmen -- whose machinations crush the working class, sow division and hate --and endanger -- well, HUMANITY... 

Prayer

How I long to live to see

A life lived in love and peace

A world where hatred lives no more

Good will is law there’ll be no more war

 

Verse 1

Dark skies storm warning

Big lies the truth’ll be dawning

The Eagle has flown it’s already gone and

Dark night Red morning

 

Verse 2

He’s got a chip on his shoulder and a loosening screw

He’s got an enemies list and he’s coming for you

He’s got a nuclear button that he’s itching to use

But you might be the lucky one to make it through 

 

Verse 3

Just in case you think it’s some kind of joke

Something in the system is terribly broke

Those guys in DC they just blowing smoke

Condition critical: it’s no hoax

There is obstruction

There is collusion

There is misinformation and widespread confusion   

 

Chorus

Will you won’t you can’t you see the tragedy

Humanity is a terrible thing to waste – don'tcha think

 

Verse 4

Hey kid where’d your mama go

I saw her at the border just a while a go

She gave you to the man said it’s safe to go

But you might not ever see her face no more

 

Chorus

Tragedy

Humanity is a terrible thing to waste – don’t you think

Humanity is a terrible thing to waste
