For many days we traveled from a distant place and time
To reach a place they call the planet earth
There was to be a celebration
On the mission of the sacred heart

The planet earth from way up there is beautiful and blue
And floating softly through a rainbow
But when you touch down, things look different here
At the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by, who are you and who am I?
How's life on earth?
Livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth
Well all the stars above where I see fingers down on me
Livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth

On a dirty worn-out sidewalk, sits a mother with a baby
In her vale of tears she sees no rainbow
And someone's singing from a window
In the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by, who are you and who am I?
How's life on earth?
Livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth
And when the stars above where I see fingers down on me
Livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth, livin' on the earth

There's a building on a corner, in a city, in a land
On a place they call the planet earth
My orders are to sit here and watch the world go by
From the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by, who are you and who am I?
Watching all the days roll by, who are you and who am I?
How's life on earth? What is it worth?
