I’m really worried about living

I had a pulmonary embolism earlier this week. When I left the hospital, I heard this song which made me sob uncontrollably.

Many years ago he looked out through a glassless window.
All that he could see was Babylon.
Beautiful green fields and dreams.
He learned to measure the stars.
But there was a worry in his heart.

He said, How could it come to this?
I’m really worried about living.
How could it come to this?
Yeah, I really want to know about this.

Then there came a time
It moved out ‘cross the Mediterranean.
Came to Western isles and the Greek young men.
With their silver beards they laughed
At the unknown of the universe.
They could just sit and guess God’s name.

But they said, How could it come to this?
I’m really worried about living.
How could it come to this?
Yeah, I really want to know about this.

Then there came a time of kings, empires and revolutions.
Blood just looks the same when you open the vein.
Sometimes it was faith, power or reason as the cornerstone.
But the furrowed brow has never left his face.

He said, How could it come to this?
I’m really worried about living.
How could it come to this?
Yeah, I really want to know about this.

How could it come to this?
We’ve been living in a landslide!
How could it come to this?
Yeah, we really want to know about this.

Then there came a time, man packed up,
Moved off from the planet.
He went to the moon.
Now he’s out in space,
Hey, fixing all the problems.
He comes face to face with God.

He said, How could it come to this?
I’m really worried ’bout my creation.
How could it come to this?
Yeah, I really want to know about this.
It isn’t like today?
Is it like today?
Is it like today?
