We Are Not The World – an ode to planet Earth

I’ve been stuck in the grey
They’ve taken all the greens away, has it ruined your day? 
I know you’re hurting but I need to ask you anyway

Can you give me a role?
Why do we keep getting old, something to do with a soul? 
We’re just letting things unfold

They say we need a plan
To save the future, save the man
But I don’t think they understand 
You don’t belong to me, and you’ll keep turning being free

We are not the world
Or so I keep getting told
We are not the world 
Oh my God, you won’t be overthrown 
We are not the world 
What will it take to make them see?
This place just wasn’t meant for you and me,
We are not the world, we are not the world

Can you spare us a day? 
I don’t mean to make you wait, and we’re changing our ways
Now I’ve got some things to say, I’ve been running in the rain

They say we need a plan
To save the future, save the man
But I don’t think they understand 
You don’t belong to me, and you’ll keep turning being free

We are not the world
Or so I keep getting told
We are not the world 
Oh my God, you won’t be overthrown 
We are not the world 
What will it take to make them see?
This place just wasn’t meant for you and me,
We are not the world, we are not the world
