Eye of the Dragon

Half the World

As my CD player started playing this song, somehow, the lyrics just seemed to resonate with the current global situation.

Half The World
Geddy Lee/Alex Lifeson/Neil Peart

Half the world hates
What half the world does every day.
Half the world waits
While half gets on with it anyway.

Half the world lives,
Half the world makes,
Half the world gives,
While the other half takes.

Half the world is
Half the world was.
Half the world thinks
While the other half does.

Half the world talks
With half a mind on what they say.
Half the world walks
With half a mind to run away.

Half the world lies,
Half the world learns,

Half the world flies,
As half the world turns.

Half the world cries,
Half the world laughs,
Half the world tries,
To be the other half.

Half of us divided
Like a torn-up photograph.
Torn-up photograph.
Half of us are trying
To reach the other half.
To reach the other half...

Half the world cares
While half the world is wasting the day.
Half the world shares
While half the world is stealing away.

Half the world lives,
Half the world makes,
Half the world gives,

While the other half takes.

Half the world cries,
Half the world laughs,
Half the world tries,
To be the other half.

To be the other half...
