Earth Song

Lyrics

playWhat about sunrise?
playWhat about rain?
playWhat about all the things
playThat you said we were to gain?

playWhat about killing fields?
playIs there a time?
playWhat about all the things
playThat you said was yours and mine?

playDid you ever stop to notice
playAll the blood we've shed before?
playDid you ever stop to notice
playThis crying Earth, this weeping shore?

playWhat have we done to the world?
playLook what we've done.
playWhat about all the peace
playThat you pledge your only son?

playWhat about flowering fields?
playIs there a time?
playWhat about all the dreams
playThat you said was yours and mine?

playDid you ever stop to notice
playAll the children dead from war?
playDid you ever stop to notice
playThis crying Earth, this weeping shore?

playI used to dream.
playI used to glance beyond the stars.
playNow I don't know where we are
playAlthough I know we've drifted far.

playHey, what about yesterday?
play(What about us?)
playWhat about the seas?
play(What about us?)
playHeavens are falling down
play(What about us?)
playI can't even breathe
play(What about us?)

playWhat about apathy?
play(What about us?)
playI need you
play(What about us?)
playWhat about nature's worth?
play(Ooh, ooh)
playIt's our planet's womb
play(What about us?)

playWhat about animals?
play(What about it?)
playTurned kingdoms to dust?
play(What about us?)
playWhat about elephants?
play(What about us?)
playHave we lost their trust?
play(What about us?)

playWhat about crying whales
play(What about us?)
playRavaging the seas?
play(What about us?)
playWhat about forest trails
play(Ooh, ooh)
playBurnt despite our pleas?
play(What about us?)

playWhat about the holy land
play(What about it?)
playTorn apart by creed?
play(What about us?)
playWhat about the common man?
play(What about us?)
playCan't we set him free?
play(What about us?)

playWhat about children dying?
play(What about us?)
playCan't you hear them cry?
play(What about us?)
playWhere did we go wrong?
play(Ooh, ooh)
playSomeone tell me why
play(What about us?)

playWhat about baby boy?
play(What about it?)
playWhat about the days?
play(What about us?)
playWhat about all their joy?
play(What about us?)
playWhat about the man?
play(What about us?)

playWhat about the crying man?
play(What about us?)
playWhat about Abraham?
play(What about us?)
playWhat about death again?
play(Ooh, ooh)
playYou don't give a damn!
