Humanity

Now no introductions are needed, you better believe it, I been here for thousand of years I put blood in the sand, I'm a woman, I'm a man I'm a child and I created all your fears I started world war 1, and I made happen the second one I split the atom and I flew the Enola Gay I created religion, philosophy and wisdom Science, mathematics and psychology I put Jesus on the cross, I've won and I have lost I'm a saviour and sinner, now listen I brought the final solution, created the industrial revolution Capitalism and communism If it wasn't for me, there would be no poverty No starving children, no suicides There would be no songs to sing, be no Queen or no King Be no governments across the world wide Who am I? Who am I? You know me I'm humanity Who am I? Who am I? You know me I'm humanity I put a man on the moon, I almost created our doom When the cold war started to get hot I poisoned the seas, cut down a million trees And invented guns so others could get shot I placed mad men in power, killed children by the hour But everything I did wasn't so deplorable I put food on the table, medicine, so folk were able To stand on their own two feet after a fall If it wasn't for me, you know there would never be Diseases but also their cures Drug addicts and alcoholics, from wine to narcotics From undiluted to the impure Who am I? Who am I? You know me I'm humanity Who am I? Who am I? You know me I'm humanity In the skies I put planes, across the landscape placed trains In depths of the oceans submarines In everybody's hands, smartphones now can be found For selfies I invented vanity From politics to pornography, I disgust somebody I'm divided in so many ways From black and white skin, to her now becoming him I've killed people because they are simply gay I've been a nurse helping the dying, a politician that's been lying I am every colour under the sun So young I have died, brokenhearted I have cried To be separated from my loved one Who am I? Who am I? You know me I'm humanity Who am I? Who am I? You know me I'm humanity I made the heart beat, from a kiss that's so sweet Just a simple touch on the lips can blow me away Jealousy and envy, can be found in me It's something I have to live with everyday I'm a revolutionary, a warlord selling armoury A poet, a painter, a comedian I put words on the pages, all through the ages And from my lungs you can hear me singing I'm a law man on the corner, I like to disrupt the social order My opinion is more important than any of yours A philanthropist at heart, sometimes a wild card I may not like to admit it, but I got flaws I enslaved my brothers, prostituted my sisters Killed my mother and father just to get paid I polluted the earth, didn't care what it was worth And the climate I may irreversibly change Who am I? Who am I? You know me I'm humanity Who am I? Who am I? You know me I'm humanity
