I woke today, I was crying 
Lost in a lost world 
So many people are dying 
Lost in a lost world 
Some of them are living an illusion  Bounded by the darkness of their minds
In their eyes, it's nation against nation against nation 
With racial pride
Sounds...
 Thinking only of themselves 
They shun the light 
(Shun the light)
They think they're right 
(Think they're right)
 Living in their empty shells 

Oh, can you see their bodies thrashing?
(So many people, so many people)
 Crashing down around their feet
 Angry people in the street  Telling them they've had their fill
Of politics, people who kill

Grow... the seed of evolution 
(So many people, so many people)
 Revolution everyone
It's just another form of gun
To do again what they have done
Let all our brothers come and get some
(So many people, so many people)

 Everywhere you go you see them searching  Everywhere you turn you feel the pain
 Everyone is looking for the answers 
Well, look again; come on, my friend 
Love will find us in the end
Come on, my friend 
(On, my friend)
We've got to bend
(Got to bend)
Down on our knees and say a prayer 

Oh, can you see the world is pining?
(So many people, so many people)
 Pining for someone who really cares enough to share his love
With all of us so we can be
An ever-loving family 
Have we forgotten who loves who?
(So many people, so many people)
 Children from a family tree
That's longer than a centipede  Started long ago when you and I
 Where only love...
(So many people, so many people)

I woke today, I was crying 
Lost in a lost world 
So many people are dying 
Lost in a lost world 
So many people, so many people  People lost in a lost world 
So many people, so many people  People lost in a lost world
