Is It Like Today - Sheryl Crow

Many years ago he looked out through a glassless window
All that he could see was Babylon
Beautiful green fields and dreams and 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"

Is it like today ? Oh, ooh

Then there came a day it moved out 'cross the Mediteranean
Came to Western isles of Greek young men
With their silver beards they laughed at the unknown of the universe
They could just sit and guess God's name

He said "how could it come to this ?
We've been living in a landslide
How could it come to this?
Yeah, I really wanna know about this" Is it like today ? Oh, ooh

Then there came a day man backpacked and flew off of the planet
He went to the moon (to the moon)
Now he's off in space, fixing all of the problems
He comes face to face with God

He said "how could it come to this ?
I'm really worried about my creation
How could it come to this ?
You're really killing me you know"

Is it like today ? Oh, ooh
Is it like today? Oh, ooh

Many years ago man looked out through a glassless window
Didn't know much, not much, but he saw
