So many stories to be told across the ages young and old.
Could it be that we've become immune to all we hear on daytime news,
Where is the passion to unite?
Because divided we can't fight all the troubles in this life.

There's so many things that we are fighting, yeah.
There's so many people out there trying, yeah.

[Chorus]
And there's a little girl only six years old.
Her daddy does drugs.
Her mama's on the road.
She's a latchkey kid before she's even grown.
What we really need to do is give the girl a chance.
Put her on the road where there's no way back,
To a life that she's always known.
We gotta do something, yeah.
Can't do nothing, yeah.

A&E is full of life.
Somebody's son got in a fight.
Doctors say it's touch and go,
So nobody's going home.
Friday night is where it starts.
Kids all high and having fun.
There will be a loss of life.
Trivial things that start a fight.

There's so many things we could be fighting. Yeah.
But do we give a damn and are we trying? Yeah.

[Chorus]

It's a crazy world we're living in. Yeah.
It's a crazy world we're living in. Yeah.

Across town in a club, a girl's on the floor.
She's lying in the dark.
She did it once before.
Her body's full of drugs.
She did it for a rush.
Don't it make you wonder just how many more?
We gotta do something; it's not right.
Can't keep saying our hands are tied.
Gotta do something but it's too late:
There'll be another mother digging a grave.

There's so many things that we are fighting. Yeah.
But do we give a damn and are we trying? Yeah.

[Chorus]

It's a crazy world we're living in. Yeah.
It's a crazy world we're living in. Yeah.

The world's gone crazy that we are living in.
The world's gone crazy that we are seeing in.
The world's gone crazy more than a little bit.
The world's gone crazy. Yeah.

The world's gone crazy that we are living in.
The world's gone crazy that we are seeing in.
The world's gone crazy more than a little bit.
The world's gone crazy.
