Song Meaning
Verse 1
I must've dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
I can hear the marching feet
They're moving into the street.
Verse 2
Now did you read the news today
They say the danger's gone away
But I can see the fire's still alight
Burning into the night.
Verse 3
Too many men
Too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go round
Can't you see
This is a land of confusion.
Verse 4
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in.
Verse 5
Superman where are you now
Everything's gone wrong somehow
The men of steel, men of power
Are losing control by the hour.
Verse 6
This is the time
This is the place
So we look for the future
But there's not much love to go round
Tell me why, this is a land of confusion.
Verse 7
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in.
Verse 8
I remember long ago
When the sun was shining
The stars were bright
All through the night
And the sound of your laughter
As I held you tight
So long ago
Verse 9
I won't be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We're not just making promises
That we know, we'll never keep.
Verse 10
Too many men
Too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go round
Can't you see
This is a land of confusion.
Verse 11
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for.
Verse 12
This is the world we live in
And these are the names we're given
Stand up and let's start showing
Just where our lives are going to.
