A tremendously powerful song for those who would listen to its message. Which is nearly nobody.

The fortune of one man also has a benefit to the economy. The $150,000 budget for the video for this single was apparently donated to 11 different charities. The World On Fire video was produced for $15. Interesting world we live in.

She doesn't know how to handle it; she/we are looking for help and guidance from anywhere (elected officials, heavenly powers) and no one seems to be helping - people only seem to be concerned about themselves. So she takes it upon herself to do something but she realizes that the situations are co
