What has happened to the world?
Why is it crying out in pain?
What have we done so wrong?
Who has caused this pain?

I feel a numbness, around me
I smell fear in the air
The deserted streets
No sound of laughter
But children crying in fear

What has happened to the world?
Why is it crying out in pain?
What have we done so wrong?
Who has caused this pain?

The flowers all still blooming
The birds still sing their songs
The bees buzz all around me
The butterflies spread their warmth.

What has happened to the world?
Why is it crying out in pain?
What have we done so wrong?
Tell me who caused this pain?

Humans now all dress in masks
Walking away, without a hello
No good mornings
Or I’ll see you soon
No come round for tea
Or a pop in and how are you?

What has happened to the world?
Why is it crying out in pain?
What have humans done so wrong?
Who really caused this pain?

Blossom has now been and gone
Just like the daffodils of spring
Tulips now colour the ground
And lavender has spread her wings.

What has happened to the World?
Nature is pushing us far away
Humans are not wanted anymore
Mother nature is screaming out in pain
