Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed
Take a look at all the suffering we breed
So many lonely faces scattered all around
Searching for what they need

Is this the world we created?
What did we do it for
Is this the world we invaded
Against the law
So it seems in the end
Is this what we're all living for today
The world that we created

You know that everyday a helpless child is born
Who needs some loving care inside a happy home
Somewhere a wealthy man is sitting on his throne
Waiting for life to go by

Wooh, is this the world we created?
We made it all our own
Is this the world we devastated, right to the bone
If there's a God in the sky looking down
What can he think of what we've done
To the world that he created

    General CommentYes, this song does make you stop and think. Not only are we destroying the world by abusing our power, but we (First world societies) absolutely refuse to give up just a little bit of power, money, time, whatever it takes to save people who really need it.

    General CommentThe best songs with the best messages!
    Nowadays the music just seems to be empty of reall meaning... Maybe that's why young people, born in the 80's and 90's, are falling in love with bands like Queen!
