Amel Larrieux — Sacred lyrics

Is there nothing sacred anymore
When
Celebrities are deified
And we're still calling some countries third world
And
Crimes against little ones
Are punished with little laws
And
Girls are taught to hide their curves
As though they're flaws
And other girls are taught to expose them but not own
Them and
Boys are taught
They can own it all

Is there nothing sacred anymore
In the 21st century
And I still get followed 'round in stores
And
Governments are using our money for
Reasons other than what they say they're using it for
And
Small countries fold as their
Big debt keeps on growing and
Silent pain is golden under the guise of religion and
Boys are taught
They can own it all

Is there nothing sacred anymore
Well maybe there never was, at all
