Earth Lyrics


  • 1. We Don't Care

    The green forests
    The green grass fields
    The beauty of our world

    We are burning it
    To the ground
    And we don’t care about it at all

    The blue oceans
    The blue streaming rivers
    The beauty of our world

    We are destroying it
    Fish it empty
    And we don’t care about it at all

    So take my hand and we will stop caring together
    We don’t care about the changing weather
    Don’t care about our children’s children
    Or our the legacy we leave behind when were all gone

    So why should you care
    Cause I wont
    Cause its not my responsibility

    Other people
    Don’t mean shit
    To me
    To me
    We don’t care
    We don’t care
    No we don’t
    No we don’t

    We’re destroying it all
    Burning it down
    And we don’t care about it at all

    So take my hand and we will stop caring together
    We don’t care about the changing weather
    Don’t care about our children’s children
    Or our the legacy we leave behind when were all gone

    Now try to care even a little
    It won’t hurt if you try

    We are burning it
    To the ground
    And we don’t care about it at all

    So take my hand and we will stop caring together
    We don’t care about the changing weather
    Don’t care about our children’s children
    Or our the legacy we leave behind when were all gone
  • 2. False Friends (feat. Hoss)

    If your gonna wait for your friends to help you
    I'm gonna tell you it ain't gonna happen
    These miserable times will pass by
    Just wait and see you're strong enough

    Don't trust your feelings
    ‘Cause they will take advantage of your fucking problems
    These people will make you feel miserable
    Each time you give a peace of yourself

    These false friends will take advantage
    These false friends will break you were you stand
    These false friends take your love
    These false friends destroy your life
    These false friends will take advantage
    These false friends will break your heart
    These false friends will take your love
    These false friends

    First they play there blame game
    Then they say they’re sorry but they keep acting the same way
    And I ain’t changing no way ‘cause I’m doing okay man
    (And I’m still writing new pages, will you living in the shades and)
    Brother I have changed and you are still the same
    Remember back in the days when we were still blazing, thinking were amazing
    But it was just the weed you was chasing
    And you should be ashamed and all this time is now wasted
    You’re a coward, you a traitor, a fucking alligator who’s looking for it’s prays then escapes to the deepest of lakes yeah
    Homie I’m just saying now you’d one who’s praying now looking for new friends like a needle in a haystack
    But it ain’t gonna happen

    These false friends will take advantage
    These false friends will break you were you stand
    These false friends take your love
    These false friends destroy your life
    These false friends will take advantage
    These false friends will break your heart
    These false friends will take your love
    These false friends

    These false friends
    These false friends
    These false friends
    These false friends

  • 4. Off To Other Worlds

    When you are in my head
    I will be lost and travel to another worlds
    If my heart was earth it would have left
    It’s orbit around our lovely sun

    The gravity of my love for you
    Is more massive than a trillion black holes in one
    Take this from me when I say
    I would travel a million galaxies just for your love

    Give me your hand
    And don’t let go
    I wanna love you right now
    And be your game
    The same

    Now when you are in my head
    I envision a home just for our selfs somewhere far away
    Perhaps on Titan with Saturn on the horizon
    The cold will be warmed by our love

    Nobody is gonna harm us here
    And we will be happy here
    And we make our own story
    And be free
    And be free

    Give me your hand
    And don’t let go
    I wanna love you right now
    And be your game
    The same

    Beloved

    Nobody is gonna harm us here
    And we will be happy here
    And we make our own story
    And be free
    And be free

  • 6. Selfish

    Touch my ego
    Touch my soul
    Touch my heart
    And Touch my goals
    I don’t want you to touch me

    Touch my feelings
    Touch my beats
    Touch my game
    And touch my needs
    Don’t touch me

    Someones critics don’t always mean hate
    Can you criticize yourself at some time
    Why should you always be right
    Be right
    We’ve got are selfs so high

    We are so selfish
    We are so selfish
    We don’t trust anyone
    We don’t trust anyone

    Now try to consider
    Someone is telling you the truth
    All along
    And someone is telling you lies

    You’ve got the feeling there all against you
    Could it be that you might be wrong at this time
    Try to find the truth for yourself
    You might loose
    It’s your time to choose

    We are so selfish
    We are so selfish
    We don’t trust anyone
    We don’t trust anyone

    Now try to consider
    Someone is telling you the truth
    All along
    And someone is telling you lies

    We are so selfish
    We are so selfish
    We don’t trust anyone
    We don’t trust anyone

    Wouldn’t it be epic
    You could trust anyone
    You could discuss are differences
    With anyone
    Your not alone in this world
    We all come from our mothers
    We are not driven by a force
    And we are telling our own truth

    Now try to consider
    Someone is telling you the truth
    All along
    And someone is telling you lies
  • 7. Monkeys Are Our Cousins

    Nowadays they say
    They say I can’t decent
    From no monkey
    No monkey no way
    No way oh no way

    But when you apply some science
    You will find that were really family
    Faraway relatives
    Monkeys are our cousins

    (Monkeys are our cousins)

    Instead of some study
    They claim arks and other nonsense
    Which can only be explained
    With magic oh with magic

    But when you apply some science
    You can’t find any evidence
    Not without any magic
    Could it be your truth is wrong

    But when you apply some science
    You will find that were really family
    Faraway relatives
    Monkeys are our cousins

    (Monkeys are our cousins)
    (Monkeys are our cousins)
    (Monkeys are our cousins)

    People often ask me
    If we’re descended from chimpanzees, how come there are still chimpanzees
    Well we’re not descended from chimpanzees
    We’re both descended from a common ancestor, who lived there, about 6 million years ago
    We are all cousins
  • 8. Stop Praying (feat. Hoss)

    So It's time to
    Stop praying for solutions
    We need take action ourselves
    And love all live
    Banish all evil and wrong
    If we can save innocent lives
    Teach our children love, not hate
    ‘Cause this is the only
    Lifetime we know of
    Even if you believe different
    So make this life
    A wonder on its own
    No one knows if
    There’s a paradise
    Then why do you live
    Like you do know
    And waste it away

    So nowadays we’re praying
    For cities without results
    ‘Cause the enemy does the same
    While this is not a game

    So stop praying
    Take it in your own hands
    And give love to each other
    Till we’re one

    Stop praying
    Take it in your own hands
    And give love to each other
    Till we’re one
    Stop praying
    Take it in your own hands
    And give love to each other
    Till we’re one

    Stop looking at the faces
    Making difference 'bout the races
    We are al all the same
    And we just have to face it
    Buckle up 'brace yeah
    Get the dust outta your basement
    God ain’t gonna help you if you can’t afford to pay rent
    Be sure you gonna make it
    And if ya bruised up, take it
    Stand up, be tough, and spread love
    It's not about the loot no
    It’s about the good stuff
    Like having family and a true love
    Than we are being true gods
    We don’t need no religion
    Just a clear vision
    Focus on our missions, ambitions
    Help each other with decisions
    Won’t work if nobody listens
    If you’re having problems
    You'd better ditch them,
    Wounds stitching
    The poor suffer by the richest
    My hands itching
    To fix the world for a better living

    So nowadays we’re praying
    For cities without results
    ‘Cause the enemy does the same
    While this is not a game

    So stop praying
    Take it in your own hands
    And give love to each other
    Till we’re one

    Stop praying
    Take it in your own hands
    And give love to each other
    Till we’re one
    Stop praying
    Take it in your own hands
    And give love to each other
    Till we’re one

    Until we’re one
    There will be war
    Ignorant people will make war
    For there believes
    This must stop ‘cause this is going on for centuries
    Now stop this praying
    ‘Cause theres no differents at all
    We’ve done it for centuries
    And nothing has changed since then
    Oh

  • 12. Earth

    I guess it’s a silly question
    But do you know where we live
    ‘Cause I didn’t know

    Do you what we call home
    And what our home is
    ‘Cause I didn’t know

    But now I know where my home is
    And I wanna save it from it’s death
    So I share this story until my last breath

    A blue marble in a vast ocean of emptiness
    traveling through space

    Orbiting the closest star we love so much
    especially on our faces

    And as of now the only place we found life
    A true miracle right under our feet
    I guess you didn’t know?

    But now I know where my home is
    And I wanna save it from it’s death
    So I share this story until my last breath

    Now I know where my home is
    And I wanna save it from it’s death
    So I share this story until my last breath

    Wow, time to go men

Music

My debut album is a tribute to the planet Earth. The home of every one you've ever known and heard of.

I collaborated twice with my brother-in-law Hosseen Mansour Baker on the songs 'False Friends' and 'Stop Praying'.

I also collaborated once with my step brother Olaf Heilker on the song 'A Woman's Gravity'.

The message I want to share is: Try to care more about our precious planet and every living thing on it.
