If you take the tears from crying eyes
Will the hurt just disappear?
Put a weapon in the hands of a frightened man
Will he show no fear?

So we stand and we watch as the city lights
Go out one by one
Mother Nature sits on the other side
With a loaded gun

Why is there blue sky? Why is there red sky?
Now's the time to ask the reason
Should the blue sky meet the red sky?
Should the rules have to change at all?

We all know whatever they say
Time is on our side
Ooh, this world has been here before
Just going round and round

We all agree as far as we can see
It's just the way of the world
That's how it's meant to be
There's right and there's wrong
There's weak, oh and there's strong
It's just the way of the world
And that's how it's meant to be

Take the motion from the spinning wheel
And watch it stop
Take the danger out of a naked flame
And what have you got?

If you take the anger out of a broken heart
You feel no pain
Could you swear if you had that second chance
You wouldn't do it again

Why is there blue sky? Why is there red sky?
Now's the time to ask the reason
Should the blue sky meet the red sky?
Should the rules have to change at all?

We all know whatever they say
Time is on our side
This world has been here before
Just going round and round

We all agree as far as we can see
It's just the way of the world
That's how it's meant to be
There's right and there's wrong
There's weak, oh and there's strong
'Cause it's just the way of the world
That's how it's meant to be

We all agree as far as we can see
It's just the way of the world
That's how it's meant to be
There's right and there's wrong
There's weak, oh and there's strong
It's just the way of the world
And that's how it's meant to be

We all agree as far as we can see
It's just the way of the world
That's how it's meant to be
