Verse 1:
Some kids have and some kids don't
Some of us are wondering why
And mom won't watch the news at night
There's too much stuff thats making her cry

Chorus
We need some help
Down here on Earth
A thousand prayers
A million words
But one voice was heard

Verse 2:
A house, a yard, a neighborhood
Where you can ride your new bike to school
A kinda world where mom and dad
Still believe in the golden rule

Chorus:
Life's not that simple
Down here on Earth
A thousand prayers
A million words
But one voice was heard

Bridge:
One voice
One simple word
Hearts know what to say
One Dream
Can change the world
Keep believing
Till you find your way

Verse 3:
Yesterday while walking home
I saw some kid on Newberry Road
He pulled a pistol from his bag
And tossed it in the river below

Chorus:
Thanks for the help
Down here on Earth
A thousand prayers
A million words
But one voice was heard

One voice was heard
One voice was heard
