Michael Jackson – Earth Song

Michael Jackson – Earth Song

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 was yours and mine?

Did you ever stop to notice,
All the blood we’ve shed before?
Did you ever stop to notice,
The crying Earth the weeping shores?

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,
The crying Earth the weeping shores.

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.

Hey-yea!
What about yesterday?
What about the seas?
The heavens are falling down.
I can’t even breathe!
What about apathy?
I can feel its wounds.
What about nature’s worth?
It’s our planet’s womb!

What about animals?
We’ve turned kingdoms to dust,
What about elephants?
Have we lost their trust?
What about crying whales?
Ravaging the seas.
What about forest trails?
Burnt despite our pleas!

What about the holy land?
Torn apart by creed.
What about the common man?
Can’t we set him free?
What about children dying?
Can’t you hear them cry?
Where did we go wrong?
Someone tell me why!

What about baby boy?
What about the days?
What about all their joy?
What about the man?
What about the crying man?
What about Abraham?
What about death again?
Do we give a damn?!

It has been said that Michael Jackson wrote this song because he felt the earth was crying and that he could feel its pain…

Enjoy the Song!

Love, Goldi
