The Watchers

 

Oh, oh, oh, What is the answer?

I can't tell you what the answer is.

For I don't know, what is the answer.

I can't tell you what it is.

 

From high high in the sky,

we're being watched through electrified eyes.

How their antennae must ache and swell,

as they try to figure out just what the hell,

is going on here, what's going on here?

It's really not too clear what they see going on here.

Why this world of such plenty has so many with out any?

So they think it is quite queer what they see going on here.

 

Oh, oh, oh, what is the answer?

I can't tell you what the answer is.

For I don't know, what is the answer.

I can't tell you what it is.

 

So high high in the sky ,

we're being watched and they're wondering why?

On this poor world north, south, west, and east

is there oh so much despair, and so very little peace?

What's going on here, what's going on down there?

They are questioning sincere, what they see going on here.

Why is this realm of such beauty, raped and plundered so crudely?

So they thinking it's severe,what they see going on here.

 

Oh oh oh What is the answer?

I can't tell you what the answer is.

For I don't know, what is the answer.

I can't tell you what it is.

 

"Why have they, cut down the trees, and torched the land?"

"Why are they killing themselves with their very own hands?"

"Why have they poisoned the seas, poked holes in the sky,

and talk about making money, while their sweet world dies, dies, dies?"

 

Zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom,

zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom!

So they're flying all about,

as they try to figure out.....

 

Zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom,

zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom!

why we slaughter one and other,

though we are birthed of the same mother Earth.

 

Zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom,

zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom!

Why we don't seem to understand,

this was never meant or planned, no!

 

Zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom,

zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom!

So they're waiting patiently to see

what path we choose to be our destiny.

 

Oh, oh, oh, what is the answer?

I can't tell you what the answer is.

For I don't know, what is the answer.

I can't tell you what it is.

 

 

So high high in the sky,

if you just watch you will see them passing by,

and then when you do you too will agree,

"Must've been a higher goal in mind for this race Humanity.

But what's going on here, and what's been going here,

has long detoured us from our course, and much delayed us I fear.

I just hope we have the time to get together in our minds,

recoup, regroup, rethink, refine, before our future's left behind.

 

Oh, oh, oh, what is the answer?

I can't tell you what the answer is.

For I don't know, what is the answer.

I can't tell you what it is.
