“Pieces of this World”

Pieces of this world
Came down yesterday
The old men sang out loud
To the boys it was a mystery

And young boys became men
There was nothing to defend them from harsh sounds
Preceding poor judgment made them
A generation lost and jaded

While pieces of this world
Killed more than those boys
Leaders should shake hands
Instead they play with army toys

And young men should question
What they’re really fighting for
When pieces of violence
March up to their door

Pieces of this world
Hide the answers
Treasures will be found
If we dig ourselves deeper

Will we fall into these holes
And won’t be able to climb out
Unless we question who we are
Blend the colors into one

We are all pieces of this world
We are all pieces of this world
We are all pieces of this world
We are all pieces of this world.
