This is the world

This is the world we live in

We worship jealousy and hate

We build monuments to adultery

We call girls from broken homes slags

Because they give themselves away too easily

Yet we congratulate guys for sleeping with fifty girls a year.

This is the world we live in

We talk about love, tolerance and education

Yet encourage ignorance and hate

For those who think differently.

We label people without trying to get to know them:

This girl is vain and stupid

This guy is a loner and a nerd

This woman is a Christian

So she must be a heartless fanatic who hates homosexuals

This man is a Muslim

So he wants to blow us all up to pieces.

This is the world we live in:

“Compete, compete, compete”

“You are not good enough”.

We rate each other by numbers

There’s a 4 standing behind a 9

I’d sleep with a 4 but I’d never date her

What an embarassment, what shame.

This is the world we live in 

But do you know you don’t have to?
