lyrics

VERSE 1
See a homeless person wheeling a trolley
a man at a party paying for some molly
see a beautiful woman smiling
see a woman beaten up and then reconciling
seeing a baby being born and placed into the mothers hands
seeing a parent dying like trying to pick up sand
a family receiving a phone call from Iran
the way women are treated in pathetic Pakistan
a mother and child separating, no love
meeting a family member never knew, all the above
It's a sad and beautiful world, contrasting emotions
promotion, demotion, people with different devotions
devotion to the pipe, money, family and charity
the aforementioned come with many severities
see a flower blooming with only God's aid
someone fighting with strength through cancer unafraid

CHORUS
It's a sad and beautiful world x4

VERSE 2
A boxer laying a perfectly timed punch
a cowards punch in the streets, roses in a bunch
beautiful world hearing me spit fire
hearing others spit garbage, too often transpires
A young girl smoking is something that I hate to see
makes me shake my head and hold my breath as I flee
wonder how anyone can start puffing in this day and age
no matter how many times I see it, I can't easily turn the page
a troubled kid who has seen it all
the way people can change with the right mentor
a crew with the liquor they pour
remembering a loved one, as humans it's what we stand for
the way we can get through traumatic tragedy together
as one we become through terrorism and terrible weather
but we pray and hope that these never happen again
the consistency it occurs is a fucking drain

CHORUS

VERSE 3
It's a sad and beautiful world, and sad and beautiful planet
example; a garbage tip being decorated by a soaring gannet
seeing a stunning women's neck with jewellery
seeing Earth's jewels being mined brutally
the way we treat Earth should be UN's number one concern
we don't want our children's children to burn
we don't want our children's children to learn
that enough wasn't done when it was our turn
have them with no power going back to using a quern
we've known for over half a century, but yet they remain stern
these selfish motherfuckers mostly in their '50s and '60s
deny the truth for a few more crispy fifties
linked to energy companies so they don't want us to go green
it's a scary, fucking incredible scene
they don't give a fuck because when it turns they'll be gone
they'll have gold coffins and we'll have graves to dance on

CHORUS

about

Joe March Australia

I'm passionate about music and have been making it for a minute. I mainly create conscious hip hop where I can vent by putting my opinions down on 'wax'. Many other songs are tracks about the fairer sex.
