Earth Song - Michael Jackson

(VERSE 1)
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?

(INTRO)
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?

Aaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaah

(VERSE 2)
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 were yours and mine?

(INTRO)
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war?
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth the weeping shores?

(CHORUS)
Aaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaah

I used to dream
I used to glance
beyond the stars
Now I don't know
where we are
Although I know

(go to CHORUS)

(go to CHORUS x2)

(REFRAIN)
Hey, what about yesterday?
What about the seas?
The heavens are falling down?
I can't even breath.

What about the bleeding Earth?
Can't we 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?
We're 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 babies?
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?

  2. This song really does mean to me I mean like...
    What about the bleeding Earth?
    Can't we feel its wounds?
    What about nature's worth?
    It's our planet's womb.
    We need to save our planet and that is what Michael Jackson was trying to do through not only his music but through his heart.
