I woke up today, I was crying. Lost in a lost world. Cos' so many people are dying. Lost in a lost world. Some of them are living an illusion, Bounded by the darkness of their minds, In their eyes, it's nation against nation, With racial pride, sad hearts they hide, Thinking only of themselves, They shun the light. They think they're right, Living in their empty shells.
Oh, can you see their world is crashing, Crashing down around their feet, And angry people in the street, Are telling them "they've had their fill, Of politics that wound and kill, Grow, the seed of evolution, Revolution never won, It's just another form of gun, To do again what they have done, With all our brothers youngest sons.
Everywhere you go you'll see them searching, Everywhere you turn you'll feel the pain, Everyone is looking for the answer,
We'll look again, come on my friend, Love will find them in the end, Come on my friend We've got to bend, On our knees and say a prayer.
Oh can you feel the world is pining, Pining for someone who really cares, Enough to share his love, With all of us. So we can be, An ever loving family.
Have you forgotten we're all children, Children from a family tree, That's longer than a centipede, And started long ago when you and I Where only love....
I woke today, I was crying. Lost in a lost world
So many people are dying. Lost in a lost world
Michael Pinder (1972)
