Verse From Lyrics 'Where Have All the Leaders Gone'

Mouse Pad

Song Lyrics Written by Me around 2004:

(VERSE 1)
Beyond the sunset another child smiles
Held in her mother’s arms for a while
Cuddled up with faith her guiding force
She prays to her God for the same things of course;
For leaders to lead us down a path of peace
That her baby will always have enough to eat
That her neighbors get all the help they need
And imprisoned minds will someday be freed

(CHORUS)
We sing for justice in a song
The world in disarray for so long
If right is someone else’s wrong
then who’ll teach us how to get along
With divide and conquer going strong
Where have all the leaders gone?

(VERSE 2)
How many questions did you ask today?
Do you believe what the media has to say?
Did your neighbor lose his job or home?
If the leaders tell him to do it alone…
do you believe he should rebuild on his own?
There’s no money left, sorry it’s gone
Where has all the money flown?

(CHORUS)
We sing for justice in a song
The world in disarray for so long
If right is someone else’s wrong
then who’ll teach us how to get along
With divide and conquer going strong
Where have all the leaders gone?

(VERSE 3)
Does money define the entire earth?
How do we determine what a life is worth
Who makes the call that some live and some die?
A mother asks while she’s doubled over to cry
“Why me, why us, why tell me why!
why did my child have to die!”
This pain is her prison and they still deny
that wars are built on sandstone lies

(BRIDGE TO CHORUS)
Leaders who lead us to live in peace
Who build bridges of hope without shaking their fist
Who understand we must all co-exist
and share the resources of this earth
‘Cause no one owned it at its birth
who owns the moon?
who owns the stars?
is that where all the leaders are?
We sing for justice in a song
With the world in disarray this long
and right is always someone’s wrong
who’ll teach us how to get along
with divide and conquer going strong
Where have all the Leaders Gone?

Song Lyrics: “Where Have All The Leaders Gone”…I read, I watch, I listen, and I can’t believe the state of the planet. Should we, the tenants of mother earth, demand more from ourselves, and those who lead us?
