Earth Song

Lyrics

play What about sunrise?
play What about rain?
play What about all the things
play That you said we were to gain?

play What about killing fields?
play Is there a time?
play What about all the things
play That you said was yours and mine?

play Did you ever stop to notice
play All the blood we've shed before?
play Did you ever stop to notice
play This crying Earth, this weeping shore?

play What have we done to the world?
play Look what we've done.
play What about all the peace
play That you pledge your only son?

play What about flowering fields?
play Is there a time?
play What about all the dreams
play That you said was yours and mine?

play Did you ever stop to notice
play All the children dead from war?
play Did you ever stop to notice
play This crying Earth, this weeping shore?

play I used to dream.
play I used to glance beyond the stars.
play Now I don't know where we are
play Although I know we've drifted far.

play Hey, what about yesterday?
play (What about us?)
play What about the seas?
play (What about us?)
play Heavens are falling down
play (What about us?)
play I can't even breathe
play (What about us?)

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

play What about animals?
play (What about it?)
play Turned kingdoms to dust?
play (What about us?)
play What about elephants?
play (What about us?)
play Have we lost their trust?
play (What about us?)

play What about crying whales
play (What about us?)
play Ravaging the seas?
play (What about us?)
play What about forest trails
play (Ooh, ooh)
play Burnt despite our pleas?
play (What about us?)

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

play What about children dying?
play (What about us?)
play Can't you hear them cry?
play (What about us?)
play Where did we go wrong?
play (Ooh, ooh)
play Someone tell me why
play (What about us?)

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

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