Genocism, criticism, unemployment, racism
Burning buildings, AIDS victims, cancer killin' no cure
Oil spillin', turmoil, poverty stricken
Genocide (such as in Rwanda), criticism (a lot of people out there just sit around shooting other people down), unemployment (the recession), racism (self explanatory).
Burning buildings (terrorism), AIDS victims and cancer — these horrible diseases that take lives by the millions yet there is no cure for any of it.
Oil spills that ruin oceans (like the BP oil disaster), just the general disregard for the planet we live on, we as humans are in constant turmoil, and 90% of the world’s population lives in poverty.
Yeah, he’s describing life as it really is for the majority of the world.
