Relatable and Inspiring

"The Animal Song"

When superstars and cannonballs are running through your head 
A television freak show cops and robbers everywhere 
Subway makes me nervous, people pushing me too far 
I've got to break away 
So take my hand now

'Cause I want to live like animals 
Careless and free like animals 
I want to live 
I want to run through the jungle 
The wind in my hair and the sand at my feet 

I've been having difficulties keeping to myself 
Feelings and emotions better left up on the shelf 
Animals and children tell the truth, they never lie 
Which one is more human 
There's a thought, now you decide 

Compassion in the jungle 
Compassion in your hands, yeah 
Would you like to make a run for it 
Would you like to take my hand, yeah 

Sometimes this life can get you down 
It's so confusing 
There's so many rules to follow 
And I feel it 
'Cause I just run away in my mind 

"Earth Song"

What have we’ve done to the world
Look what we've done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son...
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth, this weeping shore?

Hey, what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
The heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I can't even breathe
(What about us)
What about apathy
(What about us)
I need you
(What about us)
What about nature's worth
(ooo, ooo)
It's our planet's womb
(What about us)
What about animals
(What about it)
Turned kingdoms to dust
(What about us)
What about elephants
(What about us)
Have we lost their trust
(What about us)
What about crying whales
(What about us)
Ravaging the seas
(What about us)
What about forest trails
(ooo, ooo)
Burnt despite our pleas
(What about us)
