The Rape of the World Songtext
von Tracy Chapman

The Rape of the World Songtext

Mother of us all
Place of our birth
How can we stand aside
And watch the rape of the world
This is the beginning of the end
This is the most heinous of crimes
This is the deadliest of sins
There is speculation all time
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We're all witness to the rape of the world
You've seen her stripped, mined
You've heard of bombs exploded underground
You know the sun shines
Hotter than ever before
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We're all witness to the rape of the world
Some claim to have crowned her Queen
With cities of concrete and steel


There is no glory no honour
In what results from the rape of the world
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We're all witness to the rape of the world
She's been clearcut
She's been dumped on
She's been poisoned and beaten up
We've been witness to the rape of the world
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
How can we stand aside
Watch the rape of the world
If you look, you'll see it with your own eyes
If you listen, you'll hear her cries
If you care, you'll stand and testify
Stop the rape of the world
Stop the rape of the world
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
