"For many days we traveled from a distant place and time
To reach a place they call the planet Earth
There was to be a celebration
On the mission of the sacred heart.

The planet Earth from way up there is beautiful and blue
And floating softly through a rainbow
But when you touch down things look different here
At the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I
Hows life on earth
Living on the earth
When all the stars above lay icy fingers down on me
Living on the earth

On a dirty worn-out sidewalk sits a mother with a baby
In her vale of tears she sees no rainbow
And someone's singing from a window
In the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I
Hows life on earth
Living on the earth
And when the stars above lay icy fingers down on me
Living on the earth

There's a building on a corner in a city in a land
On a place they call the planet Earth
My orders are to sit here and watch the world go by
From the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I

Hows life on earth
What is it worth"
