Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed Take a look at all the suffering we breed So many lonely faces scattered all around Searching for what they need
Is this the world we created? What did we do it for Is this the world we invaded Against the law So it seems in the end Is this what we're all living for today The world that we created
You know that everyday a helpless child is born Who needs some loving care inside a happy home Somewhere a wealthy man is sitting on his throne Waiting for life to go by
Wooh, is this the world we created? We made it all our own Is this the world we devastated, right to the bone If there's a God in the sky looking down What can he think of what we've done To the world that he created
Lynn from TexasThis song was actually written by Brian and Freddie because of the news footage of the famine but before Live Aid was ever conceived. Freddie told Brian that he couldn't stand to watch it and had to turn the news off so they sat down and wrote the song together in the studio. Worked perfectly then for Live Aid and people assumed that they had written the song specifically for the concert.

Rose from Boston, MaThis song makes me want to get off my rear and save the world from poverty and disease. Especially since the first time I heard it was on a Live Aid DVD.
