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.

    this means that we did terrible things to the world and the phrase "your only son" refers to the earth and it also means that we were supposed to get sunrise,rain, and other stuff from the earth and keeping it from getting destroyed but we are all destroying it any way

    when you first hear this song you would think that it is only about how humans wrecked the earth and how they don't think about how this would affect other people and the earth. but take a look at the lyrics and you realise how deep this song actually is!!! it is also about how war and death affects other people. it includes personification by saying "this crying earth" and "these weeping shores". it is quite an emotional song. poor seal i don't like seeing stuff die.

    we've lost our connection with animals destroying trees loosing all the magnificent things that god provided us with. But why cant people see its slipping away probably never to return if we don't save it.

    Michael Jackson singing about preserving the nature. Yet we may ask Did he narrow down the amount he flew? etc.

    He is saying; "where are you GOD"? And the theme is that you must look to the earth (hands in the soil), not deities that make supposed promises.

    This song is about what our world is going to be like if we don't stop the way we are destroying rainforests,polluting,and destroying animals habitats.(Stop it from happening!)
