For many days we travelled 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.

Chorus
Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am i?

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.

Chorus -- repeat

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.

Chorus -- repeat
