about

That's a lot of people

lyrics

We’re brown and white and black and tan and woman, girl and boy and man; and we’re all looking out for #1.
We’re so entwined, and yet we’re blind, we wonder ‘bout this Grand Design; we seek but we don’t find the smoking gun.
We’re 7 billion circling the sun. We’re 7 billion circling the shining sun.

We’re hiding, fighting, up all night with fears that keep our stomachs tied in knots and there is no safe place to run.
We sip our latte, dip biscotti, hop into a Maserati; take the kids on 6 week vacations.
We’re 7 billion circling the sun. We’re 7 billion circling the shining sun. Whoa…..

We drive and flip our middle finger, go home turn on Jerry Springer, eat burgers on sesame seed buns.
We live in shadows of the trash; send 4 year olds to beg for cash and that is just as easily said as done.
We’re 7 billion circling the sun. We’re 7 billion circling the shining sun.
We pile the kids in minivans to practice soccer, Irish dance, and in the glove box we conceal a gun.
We’re refugees huddled in tents just waiting while the governments tighten laws on immigration.
We’re 7 billion circling the sun. We’re 7 billion circling the shining sun. Whoa….

We bleed our savings, volunteer to make a difference, engineer a place that’s clean and safe for everyone.
Yea, something in my DNA says I can’t throw this world away; each day I pray that we’ll say love has won. Love has won.
We’re 7 billion circling the sun. We’re 7 billion circling the shining sun. Shining sun.
Love has won.
