Crazy world
It's a crazy world
It's a crazy crazy world

People work hard all their life
'Til their life just slips away
But even the mute and the fevered got to die some day
And now they're selling water
I drank water from a creek
Someday they are gonna sell us
The very air that we breathe

It's a crazy world
Oh it's a crazy world

You can lay your money down
And win every bet
But the tax man's gonna take
Half of what you got
Politicians spend millions
Trying to get your vote
But everybody knows
They've already bought your soul

It's a crazy world
Hey it's a crazy world

One thing for sure
It ain't never gonna change
The hole we're digging is getting deeper every day

It's a crazy world
Hey it's a crazy world

Summer out tonight
Another child hungry
Some got so much
Some ain't got any air
People killing each other in the name of the lord
No one wants to stop a money making war

It's a crazy world
Hey it's a crazy world
It's a crazy world
Lord knows it's a crazy world
It's a crazy world
Let's hold each other's hands
Live and let live
