Rockets launch us to outer space. Far away from this human wasteland
We're bringing heaven to other worlds. Abandoning the home fires of our birth
There are fools who believe we can't live here as one
There are wise men who say it still can be done

I'm watching the world. I'm watching the change in power
I'm watching the world Are we building a future or just standing still?

We will harvest the fields of wheat. For a promise of food to eat
Forging plows to make swords for war.
We can stop this fighting and open the door
Only fools could believe we can't live here as one
Who's to say it cannot be done

I'm watching the world. I'm watching the change in power
I'm watching the worldAre we building a future or just standing still?
Who is watching this world? Who is changing the balance of power?
I'm watching the world Are we building a future or just standing still?

(Solo) ”Watching the world”

Only fools would believe we can't live here as one
Who's to say it cannot be done

Watching the world. I'm watching the change in power
I'm watching the world. Are we building a future or just standing still?
(just standing)

Watching the world. Who is changing the balance of power?
I'm watching the world. Are we building a future or just standing still?
(just standing still)

We are watching the world. Who is changing the balance of power?
We are watching the world.We're building a future
I'm not standing (still).
(I'm) watching the world. I'm watching the change in power
I'm watching the world. Are we building a future or just standing still? X2

We are
Watching the world (3x) I'm watching this world
Watching the world (3x) Oh!
