I Saw the World Today

Music and Lyrics by Lydon, Bryant

Verse 1:
I saw the world today
Through someone else's eyes
She used to seem so full of peace
Now she seems indignified
The politician's grip is tight
Through an iron fist our mother bleeds
But no one seems to hear her cries
No one cares about her needs

Chorus 1:
My eyes have seen the truth
But my ears have heard the lies
We wage wars while our mother dies
Insidious demands
Stripping the earth bare
Obliterating this world we share

Verse 2:
I felt the world today
Through her own pain
She used to seem so full of life
But now alone she starts to die
Politicians grip destroys
The world that gave him birth
Reaching for the sky in vain
Say goodbye to Mother Earth

(Repeat Chorus 1)

Bridge:
Looking through my mother's eyes
Gripping tight she starts to cry
Mother Earth, where's the pride
Seeming so indignified
Screaming in the cold black night
Don't give up our world's fight
Can they not see the light
Mother Earth losing sight

Chorus 2:
(Repeat Chorus 1)
My hands have felt the death
But my mouth it speaks the truth
They've killed the world and left it for their youth
Superpowers push the button
Obliterating this world we share
Leaving no one left to care

Hook:
(Repeat Verse 1)
I saw the world today (x12)
