Imagine holding Planet Earth
In the palm of your hand
With no regard for your place of birth
Or claim to any land
The only thing between us now is the truth we understand
If Planet Earth was in the palm of your hand
Fifty years from now what will they say about us here?
Did we care for the water and the fragile atmosphere?
There are only two kinds of folk
And the difference they make
The ones that give
And the ones that take
Just like the countless bodies
That revolve around the Sun
Planet Earth must now come into balance with the one
That caused it all to be
Then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it be written, so shall it be sung
Imagine you could rid the Earth
Of anyone you choose
Which ones would you need the most
And which ones would you lose?
Do we want to judge another
Lest we be judged too?
The next one might be you
Imagine sending your first born
Off to fight a war
With no good reason how it started and what they are fighting for
And if they're blessed to make it home
Will they still be poor?
Pray for peace right now and forever more
