Who Do We Think We Are - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

All around we're caught in the light of a thousand suns
Riding the wind of eternal years
Watching the earth die before our eyes
Hearing the world crying in our ears
We kill the trees, now there isn't any rainfall
And there's burning sand where the cornfields were before
We poison seas, pouring oil on troubled waters
And the air we breathe doesn't taste good any more

We kill the land 'till there isn't any food to eat
And we fire our guns and we're fighting all our wars
See the children die like a movie on the silver screen
Now the air we breathe doesn't taste good any more

Too bad, look at your life
We are sinking in the water
Turn back, look at the time
Cast adrift on the open sea
Once more into the night
Nothing left for your sons and your daughters
We're on our ship called earth for all eternity

Too bad, look at your life
We are sinking in the water
Turn back, look at the time
Cast adrift on the open sea
Once more into the night
Nothing left for your sons and your daughters
We're on our ship called earth for all eternity

All around we're travelling the universe
Do we believe there's someone watching over us
Can we be sure?
Who do we think we are?

(we are the chosen people
We are the chosen ones)

All around we're travelling the universe
Do we believe there's someone watching over us
Can we be sure?
Who do we think we are?
