Remarkable change in We Are The World lyrics

  • on: February 13, 2010, 10:32:04 AM
There is a remarkable change in the We Are The World 2010 version which makes it crystal clear that Mike had a hand in this remake.

The original verse for We Are the World was:

Send them your heart
So they'll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stone to bread
So we all must lend a helping hand

Please check this link to see what the underlined part in means:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temptation_of_Christ

In Luke's and Matthew's accounts, the devil tempts Jesus to:
Make bread out of stone(s) to relieve his own hunger

This is the bible quote about it:
During that time the devil came and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread."
http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?se ... ersion=NLT

The "As God has shown us by turning stone to bread" line has always been a pretty uncomfortable one.  In the lyrics of the 2010 version of We Are The World this verse was changed.  The new lyrics are:

Well send them your heart
So they know that someone cares
So their cries for help will not be in vain
We cant let them suffer, no we cannot turn away
Right now, they need a helping hand

The rest of the song stays with same (apart from a rap added) and the 'stone to bread' verse is really the only one that has been changed.  Way to go Mike!

I just felt like adding this:

Matthew 4:4
Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'

Thanks for this post a lot Mo! It really made me happy. Awesome changes in the lyrics. I have to say it really made my day.  :D

Another "truth" about Michael having a hand in it.  The man in charge of the funds from this remake is named Luis Moreno.  The plans were already in place before Michael "died" for a 25th anniversary remake, although no one knew who the beneficiaries would be.  The board had already been assembled for over-seeing of the funds before Michael "died" and Luis Moreno from World Bank had already been appointed.  "Luis Moreno" is on one of the tombstones in the new Thriller video in This Is It.  Michael had to have chosen that name to go on one of the tombstones to let us know that he is in charge even from the "grave."   :mrgreen:

I'm not sure I know where you're coming from. I'm more inclined to believe that they took that line out because it referenced God rather than for the inaccuracy of the statement (since Jesus did not turn the stone to bread). But is that where you're coming from? You think he would've wanted it out because of the inaccuracy?

There is no innacuracy or mistakes in what Michael writes. Read his poetry and other quotes. I believe MJ wants us to think about the changed line, by replacing it with something neutral.

But Jesus didn't change the stone in to bread? He multiplied the bread though...

Therefore the line was inacurate? Unless it wasn't meant literally...

Clearly there was, since the devil turned the stone to bread, not God. Michael must have known that, makes you wonder why the original had that line. But now it's changed. Makes this an off message We are the World to me.

Sorry, but those are the same lyrics.
They were NOT changed.
Like someone else said it was
Willie Nelson's part in the original song.

Since it was for Haiti they probably changed it to make it make since for the event they where making it for. I mean yes the original was good but they made it more specific for the event they are trying to raise money for. And I think plenty of people could have changed the lyrics. Michael was not the only person that can write, or change lyrics.

Willie Nelson's part in the original song.

The lyrics are definitely changed. Willie sang about the stones. The new version sings about suffering (not sure who's doing the vocals there).
Just for the sake of accuracy: nobody changed the stones to bread. It was just a suggestion the devil made to tempt Jesus.

But I still don't see how this shows clearly that Michael had a hand in the remake.

Agreed, I just play both version back to back at the same parts it was changed. And I don't see how a change in the song means MJ had a part.

What do you mean off-message? How was that original lyric and Illuminati message if it was just an inaccuracy?

The original version of We are the World had the line:
"As God has shown us by turning stone to bread" meaning that Jesus gave into the temptations of the devil.

The Bible clearly says the opposite:
Matthew 4:4
Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'

The change of that line is very significant. MJ made it clear for us on whose side he is fighting now. :) God Bless him. We are right behind.

lets not forget Michael wasnt the only 1 who wrote the original and this line wasnt added on his original demo so0o maybe he did or didnt tamper with it mayb Lionel did......i could see where u come from when u say maybe Mike had a hand on the remake b.c that line was changed and we dont know who exactly wrote the original line and etc., but this doesnt "prove" Michael had a hand in the new version....we can just assume he did.......do i believe he did? Possibly, still dont think he shouldve touched the original tho...but its for a good cause and i accept i guess

sorry to confuse the issue, i cant get my head round it, how does it prove Micheal is alive and changed the lyrics? Lionel Ritchie is working on this song so is uincy Jones There is a very big possibility that Lionel or quincy changed that verse after all they are both song writters to and its no secret that Lionel Ritchie co wrote the first version with Micheal
