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 was yours and mine
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we’ve shed before

See more lyrics

Did you ever stop this notice
This crying earth this we make sure

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 this we make sure

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 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 everything
What about us
I have given you
What about us
What about nature’s worth
It’s our planet’s womb
What about us
What about animals
What about it
We’ve turned kingdoms to dust
What about us
What about elephants
What about us
Have we lost their trust
What about us
What about crying whales
What about us
We’re ravaging the seas
What about us
What about forest trails
Burnt despite our pleas
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 do we go wrong
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 men
What about us
What about the crying man
What about us
What about Abraham
What was us
What about death again
Do we give a damn
