Corrupted And Bent


In a world full of greed
I felt its pain and misery
I seen a poor man bleed
just trying to get by
I watched the burning sky
as an falling Eagle
would no longer fly
I felt the tears of a child
as horses no more were wild
I watched a beggar die
living in his own hell
I watched a government
take more than they need
corrupted and bent
I seen a time fall from grace
lost in another place
I seen a world no longer free
