Earth Song 地球之歌

by

– An excerpt from Earth Song by Michael Jason 

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?

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 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 cree
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

想想那阳光

想想那雨

想想这所有的事物

你认为我们应该得到的一切

想想那死去的土地

想想这所有的事物

你认为所有属于你和我的一切

难道你已经闭上了眼睛

看不见许多已经流下的血

难道你已经关上了双耳

听不见大地母亲的点点泪滴

想想我们所做的一切

看看我们做了什么

想想垂死的孩子们

难道你听不到他们哭泣声

我们将要堕落到何处

有人能告诉我吗…….
