Hurting Land Available On:

Hey, tell me what’s going on
Another lives been taken, another family’s shaken
We’re out of control, seems like nobody cares
Until you lost one of yours, or they lose one of theirs

Our family and friends, they’re all leaving so fast
As they pay with their lives full of mistakes, of the
past
The hatred, the murder, the killing, so violent
Continues to increase as good men stay silent
Kids can’t go to school without fear that someone,
May be out of control; come to class with a gun

We have let this go too far
Now it’s time to take a stand
We must help each other out
Learn to help our fellow man
There are people that we know
That we know need a helping hand
It is time to do our part
To help heal our hurting land

So here we now stand, our people are torn
As fatherless children do constantly mourn
The role model figure, that they never had
How things would be different if they had a dad

Our bloodthirsty culture, it fuels the fire
As mass killing death tolls climb higher and higher
How long till we wake up? Take back what we’ve lost
The price of inaction has too great a cost

There’s so many ways now that things can go wrong
And so many people feel they don’t belong
Our hearts have grown cold, and we curse above
Yet it’s us that’s lacking ‘cause we lost our love

Our love for each other, now sits on the shelf
As most of us really only love ourselves
If all of us are honest, we know we could do more
To solve the problems that most of us ignore

We have let this go too far
Now it’s time to take a stand
We must help each other out
Learn to help our fellow man
There are people that we know
That we know need a helping hand
It is time to do our part
To help heal our hurting land

It’s a hurting land, it’s a hurting land
We’re a hurting land, we’re a hurting land
That needs to change, that needs to change

We have let this go too far
Now it’s time to take a stand
We must help each other out
Learn to help our fellow man
There are people that we know
That we know need a helping hand
It is time to do our part
To help heal our hurting land
