"When You Gonna Learn" as written by and Jason Kay....
Yeah, yeah
Have you heard the news today?
People right across the world
Are pledging they will play the game
Victims of a modern world
Circumstance has brought us here
Armageddon's come too near
Too, too near, now
Foresight is the only key
To save our children's destiny
The consequences are so grave
So, so grave, now
The hypocrites we are their slaves
So, my friends, to stop the end
On each other we depend
Oh, we depend

Mountain high and river deep
Stop it going on
We gotta wake this world up from its sleep
Oh, people
Stop it going on

Yeah, yeah
Have you heard the news today?
Money's on the menu in my favourite restaurant
Now don't talk about quantity
There's no fish left in the sea.
Greedy men been killing all the life there ever was
And you'd better play it nature's way
Or she will take it all away
Don't try and tell me you know more than her about right from wrong
Now you've upset the balance, man
Done the only thing you can
Now my life is in your hands

Mountain high and river deep
Oh, yeah
Stop it going on
We gotta wake this world up from its sleep
Oh, people
Stop it going on

Mountain high and river deep
Oh, yeah
Stop it going on
We gotta wake this world up from its sleep
Oh, people
Stop it going on

Greedy men will fade away
When we stop it going on
I know it's got to be that way
Oh, people
Stop it going on
I'm asking, oh
When you gonna learn
To stop it going on?
When you gonna learn
To stop it going on?
When you gonna learn
To stop it going on?

    General CommentMy god, I can't believe no one has commented on this song.

    This is a wonderfully written song and it has a lot to do with what's going on today. He speaks about how the world is going awry.

    Such a beautiful song. I love it.
