We've flown to the moon but have we missed the boat along the way?
We reached for the stars but are we that far removed from the cave?
We've got radios and codaphones, computers
We found satellites in space
Now everybody's talking
So tell me why we can't communicate

Are we losing the human race?
Do we ever really learn from our mistakes?
Who's ahead, who's behind?
Will there be a finish line?
Are we losing the human race?

Nations are starving while we pay our farmers not to grow their grain
Fossil fuel is going up in smoke and coming down in acid rain
The more that we progress it seems
The farther we keep slipping down that drain
Its a no-win situation
So tell me why we have to play the game

Are we losing the human race?
Do we ever really learn from our mistakes?
Who's ahead, who's behind?
Will there be a finish line?
Are we losing the human race?

Who's ahead, who's behind?
Will there be a finish line?
Are we losing the human race?
