For many days we traveled from a distant place and time,
To reach a place they call the planet Earth,
There was to be a celebration,
On the mission of the sacred heart

The planet Earth from way up there is beautiful and blue
And floating softly through a rainbow,
But when you touch down things look different here,
At the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I?
How's life on Earth?

(Living on the Earth, Living on the Earth, Living on the Earth, Living on the Earth)

On a dirty worn-out sidewalk, sits a mother with a baby,
In her vale of tears she sees no rainbow
And someone's singing from a window
In the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I?
How's life on Earth?

(Living on the Earth, Living on the Earth, Living on the Earth, Living on the Earth)

And when the stars above,
Lay hazy fingers down on me

(Living on the Earth, Living on the Earth, Living on the Earth, Living on the Earth)

There's a building on a corner, in a city, in a land,
On a place they call the planet Earth,
My orders are to sit here and watch the world go by,
From the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I?
How's life on Earth?
What is it worth?
