Take all the Metal and Wood
Used in the waging of the war
And teach the men that make those weapons
To build shelter for the poor

Take all the money we spend
On the way that we appear
Find the ones that die of hunger
And help them see them another year

Before we fade away
Let's make a better day
This world will keep on turning
After we are gone... long gone.

There was a forest I loved
Where the air was fresh and clean
We took the forest for a factory
So we could build some more machines
When I was young I learned to sing
And music blossomed in my soul
We took the music from the schools
And left the darkest, gaping holes.

Where will our children be?
If they don't learn to see?
Millions of voices falling silent til' they're gone

When we were young
All the world was new
But soon we found
The childhood fairytale were never true

And how the story ends
Depends on you
And me
Where will our children be?
If they don't learn to see?
Millions of voices falling silent til they're gone...

Before we fade away
Let's make a better day
This world will keep on turning
After we are gone
After you are gone.
After I am gone... long gone
