"Where are the people?"
-- UN Secretary Kofi Annan in Sumatra on January 7th, 2004
Where are the people sir?
where did they all go?
all I see is destruction
from above and below

Where are the children sir?
I can't hear their cries
and I would rather hear the wailing
than to look into the eyes

where are all the people
in the world?
where are all the people
in the world?

Where was God on boxing day?
can he see this far?
through the veil of blackness
around the wall of stars

when will all the help arrive?
that we've heard about
will the sea give up its dead
or just stare and flout

where are all the people
in the world?
where are all the people
in the world?

Where are the people sir?
where did they all go?
all I see is destruction
from above and below

this song does NOT use the tune of Where Have All the Flowers Gone. Not sure why they are saying it does. It's an original song with an original melody.
