  • We all marvel at the airplanes up so high
    But we aren't doin' nothin' but copyin'
    What we see in the birds in the sky
    We all marvel at the skyscrapers up so high
    If we don't be careful
    All the giraffes might not have no life

    We all would just breathe in
    Breathin' in oxygen
    But that's just what you're thinkin'
    'Cause you can't see all the shade
    We all marvel at the airplanes up in the sky
    But we have to learn from the birds
    They all know how to fly

    And her mama was prayin'
    As the baby was dyin'
    And the earth could not breathe any longer
    'Cause the sea had died
    And you can't drink the water
    And you can't breathe the air
    You can't find love anywhere
    'Cause they are killin'
    They're out killin' in the street
    They are sittin' on fire
    And the devil's comin' for you and me
    Comin' for you and me
    Comin' for you and me
    Comin' for you and me

    I was singing this the other day
    You think you wanna get rid
    Of all them past-can-bes
    But when they no longer exist on the planet
    You'll just have to see
    We've gotta take care
    Gotta take care of the earth and the air
    And the sky and the water
    Angels protect this home

    And the angels were singin'
