(Lenny Kravitz, Lenny Kravitz)

How many children must die
How many rivers run dry
How many angels must cry
For silver and gold

Why don't we learn
>From our past
How many more years
Will we last
Life is just moving so fast
For silver and gold

How much more time
Can we waste
How much more land
Be defaced
'Cause soon we will all be erased
For silver and gold

'Cause our earth should last forever
And our lives fore
For God gave us all a partake
Why can we just learn to relate
We're pissing on our children's face
For silver and gold
