What Have We Become

a preacher shuns his brother
cuz his bride's a different color
and this is not acceptable
his papa taught him so
it was love that he'd been preachin
but this was overreachin'
the boundaries stretchin'
farther than his heart would choose to go

like an angel with no wings
like a kingdom with no king

what have we become
a self indulgent people
what have we become
tell me where are the righteous ones
what have we become
in a world degenerating
what have become

speak your mind
look out for yourself
the answer to it all
is a life of wealth
grab all you can
cuz you just live once
you got the right
to do whatever you want
don't worry 'bout others
or where you came from
it ain't what you were
it's what you have become

mom and dad are fighting
as rosie lies there crying
for once again she's overheard
regrets of their mistake
christmas bells are ringing
little rosie leaves them grieving
the gift she'll give her family
will be the pills she'd take

an inconvenient child
she wasn't worth their while


what about love?
what about God?
what about holiness?
what about mercy, compassion and
