Cry

Michael Jackson's song cry would've premiered on September 11th, 2002 around 9-10 in the morning if it hadn't been for Sony's arbitrary control

 Continuing his Anthemic humanitarian tradition, Michael Jackson launches "Cry" on December. Following October's Invincible Album release.

 Thanks to Mottola, America never got a chance to taste this song. However, other continents like Europe and Australia enjoyed it tremendously. The B-sides contain an "Invincible" cut(namely "Shout") and a "Bad" outtake "Streetwalker".

 On the morning of September 11th, 2002, Jackson initially planned to air this on all stations in New York City. In sympathy to those who've lost their loved ones in The World Trade Center. But Sony abruptly vetoed the project.

Cry-The Short Film


 I believe this to convey a message on the potential of peace and harmony through the bonds of unity. Symbolized by the holding of hands in single file. If we all just put away selfish ambition, there would be no need of wars, dictatorship, nor socialism. Only A worldwide total democracy of man. Which is truly heaven on Earth.

 But of course we don't live in a Utopian world(as with more power comes more corruption). So the videos theme spurs us on to make a difference. No matter how insignificant, "You can change the world".



Cry Lyrics


Somebody shakes when the wind blows
Somebody’s missing a friend(oh nooo)
Somebody’s lacking a hero
And they have not a clue when it’s all gonna end again

Stories buried and untold
Someone is hiding the truth(Hold on)
When will this mystery unfold
And will the sun ever shine
In the blind mans eyes when he cries

You can change the world(I can’t do it by myself)
You can touch the sky(It’s gonna take somebody’s help)
You’re the chosen one(I’m gonna need some kind of sign)
If we all cry at the same time tonight

If people laugh when they’re feeling sad
Someone is taking a life(Hold on)
Respect to believe in your dreams
So tell me where were you
When your children cried last night

Faces filled with madness
Miracles unheard of(Hold on)
Faith is found in the winds
All we have to do is to reach for the truth, the truth

You can change the world(I can’t do it by myself)
You can touch the sky(It’s gonna take somebody’s help)
You’re the chosen one(I’m gonna need some kind of sign)
If we all cry at the same time tonight

And when that flag blows they’ll be no more wars
And when all cause my God will answer all your prayers (Prayers)
Show the world…

You can change the world(I can’t do it by myself)
You can touch the sky(It’s gonna take somebody’s help)
You’re the chosen one(I’m gonna need some kind of sign)
If we all cry at the same time tonight

You know it just rhymes
[2X]

Why you depending on meeeEEE
[2X]
Just wonderin'

You can change the world
