Shake My Hand

Shake My Hand

 God started it with a handshake and it turned into a heartache

 Man looked at man and made more demands

Woman gave birth and now kills the child to avoid the hurt

The air was clean and then came the machine

We grow more than we can eat as many starve in the streets

No boarders and walls can stop our fall

The heart that loves will change from greed

The truth is no longer, what we ask for or need

We look at the sun until the damage is done

I am an old man staring at the clock waiting for it to stop

God hear my plead let it be more than this for me
