The age of men and women Taking grand heroic action Or making small significant gestures Which changed the world Are over. Enter the age of indifference Failing economics And aging alcoholics Dot the skyline Of forclosures And reposessions Where once stood Raised Fists
We ignored the warnings The unemployment rate Rises faster than global warming Al Gore is an adulterer Another inconvenient truth Lining the landscape of sephulchre
Failing motivation Spreads like an infectuous disease And e-mails to God go unanswered Replaced by homicidal tendency The philosophers and writers Visionaries and fighters Have all been diagnosed with Social disorder And put on lithium The public would rather watch The latest news on the off-shore drilling Moratorium Its just getting boring.
The smallest voice has ceased to be listened So instead of pulling out my hair I resign to not care And stopped acting like it makes a difference.
