Michael Jackson’s Earth Song

Ook GebioBlogeerd beleefde MJ’s dood mee, en bij deze nog een kleine tribute.

Dit nummer is dus echt Gebioblogeerd te noemen en mag niet ontbreken hier.

“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?

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

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, what about yesterday
What about the seas
The heavens are falling down
I can’t even breathe

What about apathy

I need you
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

met dank aan mijn zusje: Neel die maar door bleef emmeren over dit nummer….
