Is It Ever Going To End

by Thomas K. Hunt

It's a free for all
Everybody is doing what they want to do
It's a freak for all
You never know who you're talking to

It's gotten way out of hand
And it's all across this land
Excuse me if I offend
Is it ever going to end

Senseless violence that tears at the hearts
Beating hearts left torn apart
Too many crying in the night
The sorrow never fades with the morning light

Tear-stained mantels that glisten in the night
Precious innocence left to photos that glow in the candlelight
Framed faces that will ever shine
Angel smiles, frozen in time

Summoning up memories that hide in the mind
Taking you back to a kinder time
It's so easy just to become friends
Is it ever, ever going to end

What kind of world are we living in
It's not the world where we have been
Violence has sent our freedom on a run
Everyone's answer is through the barrel of a gun

Enjoying life without fear is a thing of the past
Look around you; just beware
Things could change really fast

This is no way to live our God-given life
There should be no war, no crime
No reason for strife
Love and laughter should fill the day
Showing respect and gratitude in every way
This broken country needs to mend
Is it ever, ever going to end
