We are a rock revolving
Around a golden sun
We are a billion children rolled into one
So when I hear about the hole in the sky
Saltwater wells in my eyes

We climb the highest mountains
We'll make the desert bloom
We're so ingenious we can walk on the moon
But when I hear 'bout how the forests have died
Saltwater wells in my eyes

I have lived for love, but now that's not enough
For the world I love is dying, and now I'm crying
Time is not a friend, 'cause friends we're out of time
And it's slowly passing by
Right before our eyes

We light the deepest oceans
Send photographs of stars
We're so enchanted by how clever we are
Why should one baby be so hungry she cries?
Saltwater wells in my eyes.

I have lived for love, but now that's not enough
For the world I love is dying, and now I'm crying
Time is not a friend, 'cause friends we're out of time
And it's slowly passing by
Right before our eyes

We are a rock revolving
Around a golden sun
We are a billion children rolled into one
What will god think of me the day that I die
Saltwater wells in my eyes.
