Why Must there be So Much Misery

A blind, homeless veteran, just setting there
People walk on by, no one seems to care
These words, I heard him saying, as tears fell from his eyes
Why, must there be, so much misery
Talk of war and victories, that's all we hear today
There's no talk of God, peace or liberty
Please can you tell me, for I'm blind and I can't see
Why, must there be, so much misery
There's Nazi's marching in our streets, they teach their kids to hate
Dividing of the people, now that's, a big mistake
Our country, is full of guns, folks dyeing in the streets
Why must there be, so much misery
Atomic bombs and refugees, there's climate change the say
Healthcare is broken, we can't afford to pay
Please can you tell me, for I'm blind and cannot see
Why, must there be, so much misery
Why, must there be, so much misery
