Planet Earth, my home, my place.
A capricious anomaly in the sea of space.

Planet Earth, are you just
Floating by, a cloud of dust?
Do you care, have you a part
In the deepest emotions of my own heart?
Tender with breezes caressing and whole
Alive with music, haunting my soul.

Planet Earth, gentle and blue
With all my heart, I love you.

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
This crying Earth, this weeping shore?

Ah, 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

What about yesterday?
(What about us?)
What about the seas?
(What about us?)
Heavens are falling down
(What about us?)
I can’t even breathe
(What about us?)

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

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

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

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

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

(Ah, ooh)
Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
