Stevie WonderFeeding Off The Love Of The Land

Seems the wisdom of man hasn't got much wiser Than the very beginning of our time Agree or war has been our way of compromising Let live and love has become our biggest lie Seems to me that fools are even more foolish Thinking of themselves and nobody else But then if asked for poor will riches be replenished They say boot straps must be pulled up by themselves Feeding off the love of the land Leaving much to be desired Living off the love of the Lord While the price for life is higher Isn't love to be admired Has the good in man expired Stealing all the love and the beauty from the land I awake each morning to the birds a-singing Singing out to God to come and save his own But when throughout the world the cry of love is ringing Is then when He'll stop to hear our song Did you know that when you feel the earth a-shaken It's only mother nature with a crying heart You see we have taken from her for so many ages Will there be a time when taking stops and giving starts 'Cause we're feeding off the love of the land Leaving much to be desired Living off the love of the Lord While the price for life is higher Isn't love to be admired Has the good in man expired Stealing all the love and the beauty from the land Yes we are feeding off the love of the land Never hearing what He's saying Living off the love of the Lord Never feeling what you're praying Never praising Him for beauty Only praying God please give me Stealing all the love and the beauty from the land Stealing all the love and the beauty from His land
