We All Stopped Caring


Krystal Jackson

I'm ashamed to be called human 
'cause we all stopped caring 
none of us give a damn 
why'd we stop sharing 

When we see a homeless person 
what do we do? 
we turn our heads, and walk away 
well what if it was you? 

or if we see someone 
being mugged or raped or killed 
in the olden days we'd help them 
but do we still? 

we see all the children suffer 
we see them on TV 
why do they have to suffer 
when we could give them what they need 

what went wrong with us 
to make us hate our kind 
we don't even care about Mother Earth 
did we all lose our mind? 

we're teaching our children 
the wrong way of life 
that it's ok for violence 
or to own a gun or knife 

if we all cared a little 
that would be a different case 
if we all cared a lot 
this world would be a better place
