World of Discontent
(Lyrics: Phil Odgers)

In a world of discontent
Where you can barely pay the rent
There's an underling sense of pain
You look across a sodden ground
Try to step where it is sound
End up the muck and pouring rain
Oh for the shame

Who cares for you when the world goes wrong?
Who cares for you when the world goes wrong?

There's kids, mess and distress
Kitchenware your battledress
Famines, fights and floods are worlds away
There's promises, truth and lies
Hit you right between the eyes
Brother, sister, cousin have your say
Well blow me away

Who cares for you when the world goes wrong?
Who cares for you when the world goes wrong?

Who cares for you when the world goes wrong?
Who cares for you when the world goes wrong?

You sometimes think it's rough for you
Seems there's not enough for you
It's just easier to overlook
You only have to turn a page
See the pain and the rage.
Take a budget flight and a first hand look
It's an open book

Who cares for you when the world goes wrong?
Who cares for you when the world goes wrong?

Who cares for you when the world goes wrong?
Who cares for you when the world goes wrong?
