State Of The World Lyrics

Artist: Janet Jackson
Album: Rhythm Nation

Five A.M. rise and shine

To feed the baby before he starts to cry

No rest, no time to play

15, the mother is a runaway

No time for dreams or goals

Pressure is so strong

Her body she has sold so her child can eat

What is happening to this world we live in

In our home and other lands


Drugs and crime spreadin' on the streets

People can't find enough to eat

Now our kids can't go out and play

That's the state of the world today

Lil' Johnny all alone

His only friend, the doll he carries with him

Goes to school each and every day

To be teased because he has no place to stay

This young and homeless boy feels his life is


Instead of suicide he cries himself to sleep

And it's happenin' to this world we live in

There's got to be a better way

Repeat Chorus

Can't give up hope now

Let's weather the storm together
