Another Day
oleh: Sting



Every day that goes by, a new hungry baby starts to cryBorn astride a painful grave, drowned in hunger's tidal wavePick a child that you can save, it'd be the only oneIf Africa escapes starvation, not only food but educationThe desert grows with every minute, trapping everybody in itAll the children look the same, they wonder why they came
But it's hard to tell the poison from the cureHarder still to know the reason why, why, whyThe only thing I really know for sureIs that another day, another day's gone by
Every day that goes by, a brand new missile points towards the skyWe're survivors of a game of chance, beneath an arms race avalancheIf you survive this winter's cold, you'd be the only oneIf we escape annihilation, not only hope but educationThe world is ruled by (?), adding to their weapon pilesImagine what your taxes buy, we hardly ever try
But it's hard to tell the poison from the cureHarder still to know the reason why, why, whyThe only thing I really know for sureIs that another day, another day's gone by
Oh that this too sullied flesh would melt and resolve into a dewSuffocating lassitude, drowning in my platitudeTrapped by insecurities, I'm not the only oneIf I survive this dislocation, have to use my educationThe world is ruled by (?), adding to their weapon pilesImagine what your taxes buy, we hardly ever try
But it's hard to tell the poison from the cureHarder still to know the reason why, why, whyThe only thing I really know for sureIs that another day, another day's gone by
