  • Is there a god?
    Is he watching?
    Is she watching?
    Are they watching now?
    If not, what are we doing?
    Where are we going?
    What are we doing now?
    Look at all these people
    Searching for a reason
    Searching for a peace of mind
    Hey! Say we're all created equal
    That's what they teach us
    But that ain't how we treat each other
    Now that ain't how we treat each other
    See the truth is that we need each other, yeah

    Diamond in the bag, babies on crack
    Kick in the door, wavin' the 4-4
    White collar, war, crime, money gets spent
    Candles in the sun, blowin' in the wind
    Sun goes down, heroes often get shot
    Peace has long been forgot
    Ohh it'll be too late when we find out
    Yeah all that we got
    Take a look around now, yeah
    Just take a look around, here

    Business and governments just watch as the innocent fade
    Mindless bureaucracy fail, hindering government aid
    Aren't you a appalled?
    What are we doing?
    Where are we going?
    What are we doing?

    Diamond in the bag, babies on crack
    Kick in the door, wavin' the 4-4
    White collar, war,crime, money gets spent
    Candles in the sun, blowin' in the wind
    Sun goes down, heroes often get shot
    Peace has long been forgot
    Oh will it be too late when we find out yeah? All that we got
    Look around
    Just take a look around, yeah, yeah
    Look around, we're all that we got

    May we all live long
    And may we all be brave
    And the bridges we burn, only light our way

    May we all be strong
    And we all be brave
    And the bridges we burn, only light our way

    May we all live long
    May we all be brave
    And the bridges we burn, only light our way

    May we all live long
    May we all be brave
    And the bridges we burn, will be the bridges we burn

    All that we got
    Oh, We're all that we got
    Look around now that we're all that we got

    Is there a God?
    Is he watching?
    Is she watching?
    Are they watching now?
    Is there a God?
    I'm sure he's watching
    What are we doing?
    Where are we going, nah?
    Take a look around now
