Lyrics

Take all the metal and wood
Used in the waging of war
Teach the men that make those weapons
To build shelter for the poor

Take all the money we spend
On the way that we appear
Find the ones that die of hunger
Help them see another year

Before we fade away
Let's make a better day
This world will keep on turning after we are gone, long gone

There was a forest I loved
Where the air was fresh and clean
We took the forest for a factory
So we could build some more machines

When I was young I learned to sing
And music blossomed in my soul
We took the music from the schools
And left the darkest gaping hole

Where will our children be?
If they don't learn to sing
Millions of voices falling silent ‘til there gone

When we were young, all the world was new
But soon we found, that childhood fairytales were never true
And how the story ends depends on you... and me

Where will our children be?
If they don't learn to sing
Millions of voices falling silent ‘til there gone

Before we fade away
Let's make a better day
This world will keep on turning after we are gone
Where will our children be?
What will we choose to leave?
This world will keep on turning after we are gone, long gone
