"We Aren't The World (Safety Girl)" as written by and Jeff Tweedy....
Have you seen any mention, it's been quiet in detention all week
Is that so?
I saw the winter party person candidate give a sermon shook his fists, like this
Is that so?
And everyone sat as blank as a cake and in love like a stupid lump of clay
Is that so?
I know a good Armageddon might have made my day, that day
Is that so?

We aren't the world
We aren't the children
But you are my safety girl

And you know we could go and spend ourselves like money
Let's pretend we're hundred dollar bills
Like so
And complain every day there's a spider in my soup
Tired of my opinion, like everybody else
Is that so?

We aren't the world
We aren't the children
But you're my safety girl

Like so
Oh, is that so?

We aren't the world
We aren't the children
But you're my safety girl

    My OpinionI think "we aren't the world" is a reflection of "we are the world" by U.S.A

    General CommentFor Africa. We ourselves do not have control over other countries although many public figures act like we do. We only have control over ourselves and we could just throw ourselves away. An example of this is when the song states, "and you know we could go and spend ourselves like money."
