World Party - Assorted songs



Is it like today?

Many years ago, he looked out through a glassless window
All that he could see was Babylon
Beautiful green fields and dreams and learn to measure the stars
But there was a worry in his heart
He said

How could it come to this? I'm really worried about living
How could it come to this? Yeah I really wanna know about this

Is it like today? Oh oh-oh

Then there came a day it moved out 'cross the Mediterranean 
Came to Western isles of Greek young men 
With their silver beards they laughed at the unknown of the universe 
They could just sit and guess God's name


Then there followed days of kings, empires and revolutions
Blood just looks the same when you open the veins
But sometimes it was faith, power or reason as the cornerstone
But the furrowed brow has never left his face
He said

How could it come to this? We've been living in a landslide
How could it come to this? Yeah we really wanna know about this

Is it like today? Oh oh-oh

Then there came a day, man packed up, flew off from the planet
He went to the moon, to the moon
Now he's out in space, hey, fixing all the problems
He comes face to face with God
He says

How could it come to this? I'm really worried 'bout my creation
How did it come to this? You're really killing me, you know

It isn't just today, oh oh-oh
Is it like today? Hey, oh-oh
Is it like today? Oh, bang!
Ooh ooh
