STATE OF THE WORLD James Harris, Janet Jackson, Terry Lewis Janet Jackson 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 Chorus: 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 worthless 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
