Remind Me Of Who Shall Inherit The Earth?

"And so this is Christmas and what have you done?"
sometimes I feel void of answers for my blood fully has run
it poured out in the mountains and poppy fields far away
in the name of a war on terror to keep evil away

Synthetic is the way of living
one thing that never stops giving
artificial tears and genetically modified foods
I run for the doctor to a pill that can alter my mood

"Blessed are the peace makers for they are the children of God"
yet for way too long we have been controlled by the rod
from the participants in football hitting spouses and offspring
to protests of the police and what the absence of hope can bring

Our elected leaders who should be wise with their words
an affinity for shock value better left on manure turds
technology has transformed every aspect of worldly designs
dealing with Ronnie's legacy, "dammit keep you hands off mine"

But there is one checkmate that when it burns can shine so bright
really simple to produce whether morning, noon, or night
I need not argue about it's origins like a creator from above
but you need not be human to feel the glow of unconditional love

It still contains a power to transform neighborhoods and towns
and is very very contagious, tending to attract people all around
so from the old basketball Coach Wooden so often he did say
he always wanted to be kinder for he knew of no other way
