Ever wondered about the hurricanes?
Ever see the anger in the rain, false
I think it's just the world crying for
Asking what the hell we dying for
But here's Lloyd, R. Kelly, miss Keri
And K'naan, yo the shit is getting scary

They spend up all our money, yeah
On the rockets in the sky, ah, ah,
But they don't have a reason
So they generate a lie
To distract us from the times hey
There's a hood in every city, yeah
From Compton to Bombay, hey, hey
When nobody likes to be there
The system found a way
That made 'em wanna stay

And I say, ah, 
Da ri rap da ra ra, da ri rap da ra ra
Da ri rap da, yeah
I hate to see the whole world cry,
I hate to see the whole world cry
If it was up to me, 
I would wipe them from your eyes
I hate to see the world cry

We need a plan, anybody please

So sick of this god damn Earth
That I wish that I could hitch hike to heaven
And go to God's studio and put in work
Praying down my melodies,
Give the whole world one song to sing
This hatred's got us in a pickle
A love costs five cents less than a nickel
I'm talking about one voice, one love, one color
And nobody's rich, nobody's poor
Nobody's less, nobody's more
And nobody's winning, nobody's loosing
No categories, we all music
If we can't come to see
If the whole world needs peace
And if we can't touch and agree
Than we are the true enemies

And it makes me wanna say
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na 
Na na na na na na na 
Na na na na na na na 
I hate to see the whole world cry,
I hate to see the whole world cry
And if it was up to me, 
I would wipe tears from your eyes
'Cause I hate to see the world cry

Looking in the mirror, 
Seeking in the peace
Every day's a constant battle
Between what's wrong and right
I just wanna live my life

I pray for the future
Is that we learn from our mistakes, oh yeah
Halfway into destruction
But it's not too late
Too late to make a change
So I'll say
Da da da da da da 
Da da da da da da 
Da da da da 
And I hate to see the whole world cry

Hate to see the world cry
Hate to see the whole world cry

If it was up to me, 
I would wipe them from your eyes
I hate to see the world cry

I don't wanna see them cry
Somebody help me understand
Anybody got a plan, oh
I hate to see the whole world cry

Streets on fire, burning
Every herd every city is hurting
I will wipe every tear, you sheddin'
'Cause I hate to see the whole world cry
I hate to see the whole world cry
Hate to see the whole world cry.
