  • Day by day, my life gets colder
    My eyes grows thin as I get older
    Peace in pieces, bloody and bruised
    I feel so helpless and confused

    'Cause I hear
    Screaming on the left
    Yelling on the right
    I'm sitting in the middle trying to live my life

    'Cause I can't stop the war
    Shelter homeless, feed the poor
    I can't walk on water
    I can't save your sons and daughters
    Well, I can't change the world and make things fair
    The least that I can do
    The least that I can do
    The least that I can do is care

    Ooh yeah
    Oh

    I pray and pray for life's salvation
    Faith is tried and true in tribulation
    Love is lost and lonely, check the news
    And with these open arms I'll wait for you

    'Cause I hear you
    Screaming on the left
    Yelling on the right
    I'm sitting in the middle trying to live my life

    'Cause I can't stop the war
    Shelter homeless, feed the poor
    I can't walk on water
    I can't save your sons and daughters
    Well, I can't change the world and make things fair
    The least that I can do
    The least that I can do
    The least that I can do is care

    For the life of me
    I can't see how the devil keeps enticing me
    All you see is a felon
    I know God can see what's right in me
    How I can be labeled as a villain in the first place
    When the worst case scenario is my birth place
    I'm just trying to keep from falling victim to the murder rate
    Take my life lesson, convincing the adolescents there's a God up in heaven
    Sending down blessings
    And your future ain't brighter than your present, quit stressing

    Screaming on the left
    And yelling on the right
    While I'm sitting in the middle
    Trying to live my life

    'Cause I can't stop the war
    Shelter homeless, feed the poor
    I can't walk on water
    I can't save your sons and daughters
    Well, I can't change the world and make things fair
    (Yeah, I wish I could though)
    The least that I can do is care

    No, I can't stop the war
    Shelter homeless, feed the poor
    I can't walk on water
    I can't save your sons and daughters
    Well, I can't change the world and make things fair (no no no no)
    (I wish I could though)
    The least that I can do (is what I can do)
    The least that I can do (I take with what I can do)
    The least that I can do
    Is to always care
    Yes I can care
    And you know I can care
    Yes I can care
    Is what you can do Writer/s: Clifford J. Harris, Herschel La Voyd Boone, Marlon Young, Robert J Ritchie
