I woke today, I was crying
Lost in a lost world
So many people are dying
Lost in a lost world
Some of them are living an illusion
Bounded by the darkness of their minds
In their eyes, it's nation against nation against nation
With racial pride
Sounds...
Thinking only of themselves
They shun the light
(Shun the light)
They think they're right
(Think they're right)
Living in their empty shells

Oh, can you see their bodies thrashing?
(So many people, so many people)
Crashing down around their feet
Angry people in the street
Telling them they've had their fill
Of politics, people who kill

Grow... the seed of evolution
(So many people, so many people)
Revolution everyone
It's just another form of gun
To do again what they have done
Let all our brothers come and get some
(So many people, so many people)

Everywhere you go you see them searching
Everywhere you turn you feel the pain
Everyone is looking for the answers
Well, look again; come on, my friend
Love will find us in the end
Come on, my friend
(On, my friend)
We've got to bend
(Got to bend)
Down on our knees and say a prayer

Oh, can you see the world is pining?
(So many people, so many people)
Pining for someone who really cares enough to share his love
With all of us so we can be
An ever-loving family
Have we forgotten who loves who?
(So many people, so many people)
Children from a family tree
That's longer than a centipede
Started long ago when you and I
Where only love...
(So many people, so many people)

I woke today, I was crying
Lost in a lost world
So many people are dying
Lost in a lost world
So many people, so many people
People lost in a lost world
So many people, so many people
People lost in a lost world

    Lost In A Lost World
    (Mike Pinder)

    I woke up today, I was crying,
    Lost in a lost world,
    Cos' so many people are dying,
    Lost in a lost world.
    Some of them are living an illusion,
    Bounded by the darkness of their minds,
    In their eyes, it's nation against nation,
    With racial pride, sad hearts they hide
    Thinking only of themselves, they shun
    The light. They think they're right
    Living in their empty shells.

    Oh can you see their world is crashing
    Crashing down around their feet
    And angry people in the street,
    Are telling them they've had their fill
    Of politics that wound and kill
    Grow, the seeds of evolution
    Revolution never won
    It's just another form of gun
    To do again what they have done
    With all our brothers' youngest sons.

    Everywhere you go you'll see them searching
    Everywhere you turn you'll feel the pain
    Everyone is looking for the answer
    We'll look again, come on my friend
    Love will find them in the end
    Come on my friend we've got to bend
    On our knees and say a prayer.

    Oh can you feel the world is pining
    Pining for someone who really cares,
    Enough to share his love,
    With all of us. So we can be
    An ever loving family.
    Have you forgotten we're all children
    Children from a family tree
    That's longer than a centipede
    And started long ago when you
    And I were only love-

    I woke up today, I was crying,
    Lost in a lost world,
    Cos' so many people are dying,
    Lost in a lost world.
