Williams, Deniece - Wiser And Weaker Lyrics



If you ride on a plane
You could miss your destination
See the acid in rain
Falling down upon a nation

Wise in invention and weak in intention

You're the wiser
Then the weaker

There's our rivers and streams
Water is not fit for drinking
We're polluting our dreams
Isn't anybody thinking, yeah

We're wise in our dealings
But weak in our feelings, yeah

Is the planet's fate
Just a chance we take
Ask yourself, is it fair
What am I doing and do I really care, yeah

You're the wiser
Then the weaker
You're the wiser
(That's what you tell yourself)
Then the weaker

Help the sick and the old
Feed the people if they're hungry
Sleep outside and they're cold
More to life than making money, yeah

We're wise in our power then weak in the hour

What we're heading down
Has to go around
When are we all gone, yeah
Tell me, what part of this would you like to go on

You're the wiser
Then the weaker
(Go on, yeah)
You're the wiser
(You're the wiser)
Then the weaker
(Then you turn around and you're weaker)

You're the wiser
Then the weaker
(Weaker)
You're the wiser
(Wiser, yeah)
Then the weaker
(Weaker, yeah)

What we're heading down
Has to go around
When are we all gone, yeah
Tell me, what part of this would you like to go on

You're the wiser
Then the weaker
(Go on, yeah)
You're the wiser
(You're the wiser)
Then the weaker
(Then you turn around and you're weaker)

You're the wiser
(Wiser, yeah)
Then the weaker
(Weaker, yeah)
You're the wiser
(Wiser, yeah)
Then the weaker
(Weaker, yeah)

You're the wiser
Then the weaker
You're the wiser
Then the weaker...
