(Keith, Hannon)

Now I know why the man on the moon
Won't show his face, I wouldn't if I was you
Go running high, think it's better you do
Playin' no hide and seek, keekaboo

If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for me
Where in the world, where in the world would this world be

Why do we lie, till [our face is hot and] blue
How can I rely, countin' on you
No I don't mind, long as it's true
You got the old in with the new

It wasn't working for you, it wasn't working for me
So how in the world could we stand and watch while this world bleeds

One more day, could be all it takes, to burn this damn place to the ground
Down to the seeds
One more change, we're gonna rip this entire place
Up off the earth and split the seeds - except for you and me

Why don't we cry, instead of laugh in the face
How can we deny we're destroying this place
No I'm not fine - with what?

If it wasn't for trust, peace and harmony
If it wasn't for love, tell me where in the world would this world be

One more day, we might rip this entire place
Up off the earth and split the seeds - burstin' in two
One more change, we're gonna take each entire race
Turn it all around and split the seeds

[Solo]

If it wasn't for land, if it wasn't for see
All the trees, all the ocean, all the air we breathe
If it wasn't for life and all of us
Now tell me where would this world be, yeah

One more day, could be all it takes, to burn this damn place to the ground
Down to the seeds
One more change, we're gonna take each entire race
Turn it all around and split the seeds - except for you and me
One more day, may rip this entire place
Up off the earth and split the seeds - bursting in two
One of these days, just watch and see, the [blues] is gonna show it's face
And that's the end for you and me!
