Planet Earth
Recorded November 2004 and released as the 1st track on the album Plant Earth (July 15, 2007). Written by Prince.

 
Imagine holding planet Earth n the palm of ur hand
With no regard 4 ur place of birth or claim 2 any land
The only thing between us now is the truth we understand
If planet Earth was n the palm of ur hand

50 years from now what will they say about us here?
Did we care 4 the water and the fragile atmosphere?
There r only 2 kind of folk and the difference they make
The ones that give and the ones that take

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come n2 balance with the 1
That caused it all 2 b and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it b written, it shall b sung

Imagine U could rid the earth of anyone U choose
Which ones would U need the most and which ones would U lose?
Do we wanna judge another lest we b judged 2?
Careful now, the next 1 might b U
Yeah

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun (All around)
Planet Earth must now come n2 balance with the 1 (Right now)
That caused it all 2 b and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it b written, it shall b sung

Imagine sending ur 1st born off 2 fight a war
With no good reason how it started or what they're fighting 4
(What r we fightin' 4?)
And if they're blessed 2 make it home, will they still b poor?
Pray 4 peace right now and 4evermore
Oh

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
(Ooh wee, all around the sun, yeah)
Planet Earth must now come n2 balance with the 1
(I say we got 2 with the 1...)
That caused it all 2 b and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it b written, it shall b sung
Oh, say it 1 more time

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun (Oh)
Planet Earth must now come n2 balance with the 1 (Oh)
That caused it all 2 b and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it b written, it shall b sung
It shall b sung, oh yeah
Yeah...!

So shall it b written, it shall b sung
