Mother, Father

 

Mother, father please explain to me

Why a world so full of mystery

A place so bitter and still so sweet

So beautiful and yet so full of sad, sad...

 

Mother, father please explain to me

Why forests march to desert speed

While snowcapped mountains melt away

What do we tell our babies, when do we say, oh

 

Mother, father please explain to me

How a man who rocks his child to sleep

Pulls the trigger on his brother's heart

He digs a hole right to the middle of this storm of hatred

 

Mother, father please explain to me

How it could be so this world has come to be

A precious balance in between

Such cruelty and such kindness please

 

Mother, father please explain to me

How this world has come to be

Unequaled in her blessings, oh, I see

Unbridled hatred so extreme, please tell me

 

Mother, father please explain to me

How this world has come to be so

Twisted between time and dreams

Oh, mother, father please explain to me

Oh, what's all this talk about?

All this talk about it

Spinning down, down, down, down, down

All this talk about

Endless words without

Nothing's done

 

Mother, father do you know

Why one man's belly overflows

Another sleeps in hunger's bed

Oh, we trade our world for a piece of bread

 

Oh Mother, father please explain to me

How this rare world's come to be

A place so full of color yet overflowing

Always in black and white

Drowning in the waters of our...

 

Mother, father please explain to me

How this world has come to be

While still blessed in all the things we see

Such a sad, sad home for you and me

 

Come out, and hold,

Come on out you

Come on out you

Come and save yourself

 

Come on out you

Come on we're taking the water

We're taken the water

We're taken the water

But you know

We got the freedom

We got the freedom

 

There's no God above

And no hell below

Oh, it's here with us

It's up to us

To keep afloat

 

How this sweet world has come to be

Oh to keep afloat

 

Mother, father please explain to me

How this rare world has come to be

Oh, let the blue planet

Let the blue planet

 

Mother, father please explain to me

Mother, father please explain
