World Gone Gray
Read by Carrie Fountain
When the ice starts to shiver,
When the fire starts to fade,
When all the water's in the river,
When you finally get paid.
The world gets cold and gray,
The sea no longer beautiful,
The night is in the day,
Beauty no more, the Earth is dull.
The world is cold or heartless,
It feels like hope is lost,
The smart one from the smartest,
Can’t even help our cause.
The underdog can’t save us all,
‘Cause no one seems to care,
The pretty birds no longer call,
This world I cannot bear.
