lyrics

Looking from a distance at a pale blue dot
A mote of dust suspended in a sun beam
Where every human being ever lived a life
Every thought, every feeling, every dream

Our imagined self-importance of a privileged position-
Our planet is a speck of light alone
Can’t you see that we must cherish the pale blue dot
The only home we’ve ever known.

Every king and peasant, every mother and father
Every hopeful child and couple in love
Every creator and destroyer and inventor and explorer
Every person you could ever think of

Our imagined self-importance of a privileged position-
Our planet is a speck of light alone
Can’t you see that we must cherish the pale blue dot
The only home we’ve ever known.

And all the rivers of blood from every general and emperor
Spilled to be the masters of a fraction of a dot
The endless cruelties we cause to each other
Over something that another has got

Our imagined self-importance of a privileged position-
Our planet is a speck of light alone
Can’t you see that we must cherish the pale blue dot
The only home we’ve ever known.
