"FAMINE FOR LOVE"

Verse 1
I stepped onto the crumbling sidewalk of a nation that claims to be
A place of truth and freedom, a land of opportunity.
“We trust in God,” this nation proclaims, but trust died years ago,
And God is among the list of names of people you don’t know.

Chorus 1
There is a famine for love sweepin’ this nation.
There’s a famine for peace of mind.
There’s a famine for hope that’s killin’ my generation.
There’s a famine killin’ all mankind.-

Verse 2
There’s an echoing distant memory of love that died in the Aquarian Age.
Now the air is thick with hatred; fear and anger are turned into rage.
My eyes are stinging with the tears that I weep
For the death of souls and lives:
Some buried alive from sadness, others perish from guns and knives.

Repeat Chorus 1

Verse 3
Oh, won’t you let me get you a Doctor, who can save your dying spirit?
He’s been calling your name for a long time,
Have you listened? Can you hear it?
A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief,
It was for you He died. And His Word of life can heal your soul
And fill that emptiness inside.

Chorus 2
There’s a famine for love sweepin’ this nation.
There’s a famine for peace of mind.
There is a famine for hope that’s killin’ my generation.
There’s a famine killin’ all mankind.

Repeat Chorus 2
