EARTH SONG BY MICHAEL JACKSON

EARTH SONG BY MICHAEL JACKSON

 

Lyrics
What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things that you said
We were to gain
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said were yours and mine
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we’ve shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth, these weeping shores
Aah, ooh
What have we done to the world
Look what we’ve done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying earth, these weeping shores
Aah, ooh
Aah, ooh
I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don’t know where we are
Although I know we’ve drifted far
Aah, ooh
Aah, ooh
Aah, ooh
Aah, ooh
Hey, what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
The heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I can’t even breathe
(What about us)
What about apathy
(What about us)
Drowning in the seas
(What about us)
What about the promised land
Preachin’ what I believe
(What about us)
What about the holy land
(What about it)
What about the greed
(What about us)
Where did we go wrong
Someone tell me why
(What about us)
What about baby boy
(What about him)
What about the days
(What about us)
What about all their joy
Do we give a damn
Aah, ooh
Aah, ooh

Sad, Sad
All the animals are gone.
Gone the sullied sun.
What are we going to do now
When we ate the whole darned cow.

Perhaps the first world
Should give the land
To third world
And make them our salvation.
Make them our new great nation.

Eternal World
A man on the sick bed of seperation,
A talking earth lies there for a passage.
His speech is a shooting star from a falling sky–
Pondering listening ears hard for his depart–
Invoking tears on bystanders–a gully of feelings.
His wishes lies on his mortal lip–
To leave companion frets weaken veins–
Whose flow of blood has appointed limited time.
Companions–an onlooker of a passenger.
All helpless watching him going to an eternal world. #dailywisdomwords

Spiral the change
Earth is dying to imploring
To stop this degradation..
Air pollution to the brim
Poverty to migration
Killing animals to deforestation ..
So much to try n comprehend
Yet a  realisation to amend..
Human behaviour yet to be transacted
This is the war
We should fight for.
