Why I Think This World Should End -Prince EA

The world is coming to an end
The air is polluted, the oceans contaminated
The animals are going extinct, the economy’s collapsed
Education is shot, police are corrupt
Intelligence is shunned and ignorance rewarded
The people are depressed and angry
We can’t live with each other and we can’t live with ourselves
So everyone’s medicated
We pass each other on the streets
And if we do speak it’s meaningless robotic communication
More people want 15 seconds of fame
Than a lifetime of meaning and purpose
Because what’s popular is more important than what’s right
Ratings are more important than the truth
Our government builds twice as many prisons than schools
It’s easier to find a Big Mac than an apple
And when you find the apple
It’s been genetically processed and modified
Presidents lie, politicians trick us
Race is still an issue and so is religion
Your God doesn’t exist, my God does and he is All-Loving
If you disagree with me I’ll kill you
Or even worse argue you to death
92% of songs on the radio are about sex
Kids don’t play tag, they play twerk videos
The average person watches 5 hours of television a day
And it’s more violence on the screen than ever before
Technology has given us everything we could ever want
And at the same time stolen everything we really need
Pride is at an all time high, humility, an all time low
Everybody knows everything, everybody’s going somewhere
Ignoring someone, blaming somebody
Not many human beings left anymore, a lot of human doings
Plenty of human lingerings in the past, not many human beings
Money is still the root of all evil
Yet we tell our kids don’t get that degree
The jobs don’t pay enough
Good deeds are only done when there’s a profit margin
Videos of the misfortunes of others go viral
We laugh and share them with our friends to laugh with us
Our role models today
60 years ago would have been examples of what not to be
There are states where people can legally be discriminated against Because they were born a certain way
Companies invest millions of dollars hiring specialists to make Little girls feel like they need “make up” to be beautiful Permanently lowering their self esteem
Because they will never be pretty enough
To meet those impossible standards
Corporations tell us buy, buy, buy, get this, get that
You must keep up, you must fit in
This will make you happy, but it never does for long
So what can we do in the face of all of this madness and chaos?
What is the solution? We can love
Not the love you hear in your favorite song on the radio
I mean real love, true love, boundless love
You can love, love each other
From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to bed
Perform an act of kindness because that is contagious
We can be mindful during every interaction
Planting seeds of goodness
Showing a little more compassion than usual
We can forgive
Because 300 years from now will that grudge you hold against Your friend, your mother, your father have been worth it?
Instead of trying to change others we can change ourselves
We can change our hearts
We have been sold lies
Brainwashed by our leaders and those we trust
To not recognize our brothers and sisters
And to exhibit anger, hatred and cruelty
But once we truly love we will meet anger with sympathy
Hatred with compassion, cruelty with kindness
Love is the most powerful weapon on the face of the Earth
Robert Kennedy once said that
Few will have the greatness to bend history
But each of us can work to change a small portion of events
And in the total of all those act
Will be written in the history of a generation
So yes, the world is coming to an end
And the path towards a new beginning starts within you

この世の中は  終わりにさしかかっている

空気は汚染され  海は汚され
動物は絶滅しそうで  経済は崩壊しそう

教育は地に落ち  警察は腐敗し
知性は嫌がられ  無知はもてはやされ

お互いに我慢することができず 自分自身に我慢することもできない






政府が作っているのは  学校の数の2倍の刑務所

リンゴを探すよりも ビッグマックを見つける方が簡単だ
やっとリンゴを見つけたとき そのリンゴの遺伝子は組みかえられていた

大統領は嘘つき 政治家は詐欺師
人種だってまだまだ問題だし 宗教も変わりはない

俺の神様は存在するし 愛に満ち溢れてるんだ

俺に賛成しないから お前を殺すぞ
それよりもっと性質の悪いところで 死ぬまで言い争ってやる

鬼ごっこで遊ぶのをやめた子供は 激しく腰を振っているビデオを鑑賞している



プライドは最高記録更新中 人間らしさは最低記録更新中
みんなが全部を知っていて みんながどこかに行っている

誰かを無視して 誰かを非難して

本当の人間なんてそれほど残っちゃいない 人間のふりをしたやつらだけ
過去から離れようとしない人間ばかりで 今ここにいる人間などほとんどいない


善い行いがされるのは そこに利益がある時だけ


60年前なら 真似をしてはいけないお手本だった


会社は何百万も投資して 専門家とやらを雇っている


ビジネスはいう 「これ買って、あれ買って、買って、買って!」

みんなに追いつかなきゃ みんなと同じにならなきゃ
これを買ったら幸せになるよ でも長続きはしないけど

この狂ったカオスな世界の中で 一体何ができるって?


本当の愛 真実の愛 無限の愛

愛することができるんだ お互いに愛し合うこと
朝起きたときから 夜寝るときまで

親切な行動をやってみる 親切は伝染するものだから


今から300年経っても 友達に母親に父親に恨みを持つことに何の意味がある?

他人を変えようとするかわりに 自分を変えることはできる

僕たちはリーダーや 信じていた人たちに洗脳されていたんだ

僕たちのブラザーやシスター 同胞に気がつかないように
変わりに怒り 憎しみ 残酷さを表に出すように

でも本当の愛を知ると  怒りに対して同情で
憎しみに対して思いやり そして残酷さに対して優しさで迎え入れるようになる


でも僕たちそれぞれが 小さなできごとを変えることができる


だからそうだ この世界は終わりを迎えている
そして新しい始まりへの道筋は あなたの中から始る
