Not Your Problem

Not Your Problem

all of you claim to have no control
shrug your shoulders 
and say, not my problem…
just turn a blind eye
all of you have children
do you tell them just the same
do you not bother with right or wrong
and just say, you’re not blame…
by doing nothing
are we not just part of the problem
by turning a blind eye
we are no better
than the person carrying out the crime
it looks like society has gone to sleep
not my problem, I am not responsible
what can I do?
this kind of helplessness
just leaves me kind of cold
the way they avoid responsibility
and when asked, just fold
