Rape of the World Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
How can we stand aside
And watch the rape of the wold
Verse 2
This the beginning of the end
This the most heinous of crimes
This the deadliest of sins
The greatest violation of all time
Verse 3
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We all are witness
To the rape of the world
Verse 4
You've seen her stripped mined
You've heard of bombs exploded underground
You know the sun shines
Hotter than ever before
Verse 5
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We all are witness
To the rape of the world
Verse 6
Some claim to have crowned her
A queen
With cities of concrete and steel
But there is no glory no honor
In what results
From the rape of the world
Verse 7
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We all are witness
To the rape of the world
Verse 8
She has been clear-cut
She has been dumped on
She has been poisoned and beaten up
And we have been witness
To the rape of the world
Verse 9
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
How can we stand aside
And watch the rape of the world
Verse 10
If you look you'll see it with your own eyes
If you listen you will hear her cries
If you care you will stand and testify
And stop the rape of the world
Verse 11
Stop the rape of the world
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
