I was reminded of this song when I saw it playing on the tv at the gym today. I couldn't help but feel sad, not because of MJ's passing as such (been there, done that), but mostly because this (heartbreakingly) beautiful song, and its excellent video (directed byNick Brandt), vividly depict the situation of our planet. The shocking part is that it was written almost 15 years ago, which means that nothing has changed, we're still the same, and we still ravage, ruin and kill; animals, people, the earth.

This is the world we live in.
