Earth Song Lyrics

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain...
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the...

    Michael Jackson Earth Song
    Earth song is addressing us, humanity and society in general. Concerning the fact of what we have done to the earth, all the forests are being destroyed and the bond/relationship we had with the animals is not the same as it used to be. In the other hand, as a cause of mans mismanagement of earth nature is trying to compensate. However, because of the ecological unbalance and environmental problems earth is dying. The main goal Michael Jackson wanted was to give the message to people, for “people to hear the voice of the planet” and encourage the people to do something about it.

    It's his brilliant way of saying we are destroying the world. His biggest fear is that his children and his children's children will not have this beautiful world that we have so we have to preserve this wonderful world am I right?.

    If MJ sold his soul then this is a song from one God to another. From MJ's God to all these other many different gods who have destroyed the world with endless wars and sufferings. Of course he sold his soul bcos no one can rise to that level of success and fame as an ordinary person. MJ was his Gods representative on earth during his time. A comment on utube said he was the only man who could simply stand still for 1:30sec and make people faint. For real who else can do that to so many people in 1:30sec here on earth?

    In this "Earth song" when MJ talks about... god sending his only son and all the promises made about a better world...then he talks about the promised land Jerusalem and how it has been destroyed by greed...then he talks about Abraham the father of all religion, he is talking directly to all the present many heterosexual fake gods that ran the world. Mentioning Abraham here is about sexual freedom, true love and happiness of the common man and baby boy. The line that follows Abraham is "What about death again?" Which is talking about another kind of war with a different agenda. It sounds like a war that took place before but MJ God lost that war. The clincher for me here is the suttle hint of another war to make all this mess created by all these many different heterosexual gods go away when he said, "what about death again". This God of MJ is not mealy mouthing. The message is clear. To my understanding this is a straight up warning of a pending war of the Gods. So far the world is full of wars between heterosexual gods fighting each other. MJ God in this song is telling all these fake gods that...wait a minute... let me pretend to get a direct from this one and only true God. God the sweet Devil said, "You and I need to sqaure-up one more time because you have caused so much destruction on Earth and we are all suffering and yet you don't have a plan to end all this mess you have created. Well, I have a plan but first we need to revisit the battle field." This time somebody has got to lose but it's not gonna be. Not again! Never! Your time is up!

    The line "Is there a time" right after the line about the "killing fields" refers to the endless wars that is destroying humanity. I believe it's a message/warning from a sweet sweet sweet Homosexual God that thrives on the truth to a heterosexual fake god that thrives on lies. Lets look at the line "the heavens are falling". If the heavens are falling then what is rising? Huh? What is rising?
    If feminists are rising, then who is falling? If heterosexuality is falling then what is rising?

    If this is a message from one God to another as I understand it, then its reasonable to analyze this song in patriarchal/religious context.
    Here is my take:
    So "the heavens are falling" here means oppression of women is coming to an end. Why? Because the backbone of patriarchy/religion is Oppression of women. "TAKING AWAY" women's sexual freedom is HEAVEN for a heterosexual god. So "GIVING IT BACK" is HELL for a heterosexual god but its PARADISE, its the promised land of freedom, its true love and peace for women and believers like MJ and our true and only real loving God,the Devil.

    The falling of heaven here is the rise of Women under the umbrella of feminism. Women gaining their sexual freedom is the ultimate destruction of "HEAVEN" and the creation of HELL. Ladies praise the Devil! Please!!!! MJ is talking to you my sisters. The Devil is your ticket to freedom.

    In conclusion:

    If MJ who has sold his soul to our beloved Devil is saying women are rising,then who is falling? If we look at social media, it is fair to conclude unequivacally that we are living in the end times! That is not a question. It's a factual statement. End times in religious context in the bible means the end of a heterosexual god's reign and ushering in a new world order of a Homosexual God. Our beloved Satan.

    Michael Jackson's "Earth song" and "Thriller" are war songs. War of the Gods. They have to square-up!! There is no option. Only one will win. May the truth win. May the truth

    In his lyrics to Earth Song, Michael Jackson railed against God, Our Creator. And so the Lord God took his life.

    Consider what he said in his lyrics!

    First of all, thank you Michael Jackson, you live forever in my heart.
    Alight, this song to me is a call for humanity to wake up and see what is really going on. (He is the only multibillionaire who actually used his power for good.) These aren't normal protect your world lyrics. This is 423hz music and words that he built himself in order to bring new consciousness to people. The common men who are blinded in the rat race. You won't know what I'm saying unless you know.
    Peace.

    Listen! Michael Was Not God when we was in his flesh. Whatever he was into, you can see how it seems as if it's only on stage that he gets peace and enjoy himself. You fools who's wondering where God is, or why He's not saying anything... I'm sorry for you. Nevertheless. Here's what God wants All of you to know: "JESUS."

    I repeat, He wants you to know: "JESUS."

    He also said "Even though I have made Myself publicly known, you didn't give Me your attention. At least now, if you Really want to know Me, All You Have To Do, is ASK!"

    I KNOW ALL, AND SEE EVERYONE'S HEART. TALK WITH ME, I WILL LISTEN, I WILL ANSWER YOU, THAT I MAY COME AND LIVE INSIDE YOU.

    Alright. So that's what He wants you to know.

    Sorry, I don't have an interpretation of the song.
    But, if Michael did question the Lord, then He didn't know the Lord.

    When I got super religious at one point in my life, I heard a lady minister on YouTube talk about Michael and this particular lyric in the song. She was calling him a satan worshipper and was saying he sold his soul...At one point I did believe it. I was mad that Michael could even question god. I went as far as to take down all of my MJ posters of him. I've grown over the years. Experienced a lot of things. And in the essence of my new way of thinking...Ill say Michael was right. "What about all the peace that you pledge your only son?" If this god, or Jesus is so real....Why would he allow us to suffer? Why can't he show himself? Why is there war and famine? And no disrespect to my fellow religous people. But I have yet to see this Jesus feed the hungry. Cloth the naked. Comfort the lonley. Michael was right. And, I hate at one point I doubted him. Don't really know Michael's views when it came to religion or his beliefs. But I realize it don't matter. There are religious "god fearing" people doing the most wreckless shit, then sprinkle Jesus on it to justify their behavior.

    I honestly believe that Michael Jackson was addressing both God and Humans because he understands that we are killing each other in wars. There is also an aura of sophistication in his way of thinking enough to understand that there are children being sent to war too.
    Love You MJ, 11th Grader.

    I think that Michael has a big heart full of feelings, that he expresses through his music, his love for God and his appreciation for all Gods gifts to us, that we don’t take care of, his people the earth, we should all feel something tug at our hearts when we hear the Earth Song and watch the video, maybe even try to do something ourselves to make a difference, and we can !!! If each and everyone of us was to really try, God Bless Everyone, and our planet
