I was taken aback when I heard the news..
of some dooms day clock, I said "NO!" this isn't right
We've got to choose.
There IS NO doomsday can't you see...
A new worlds here for you and me
To love to hold to reinforce
To set aright its natural course
Say "I will not let you take from me
My right to live and to be free"
Stand up I say to planet earth
Let no doomsayers negate your birth
Your valuable life, your passionate work,
Take up the cause - you know your worth.
You mustn't stand idly by
Don't let the lunatics decide
The change you're feeling isn't true,
Look ...The sky above-It is NOT RED...by God .... IT'S BLUE
Now there are warnings, it's getting' pretty hot,
You've been told it's hell, but hell it's not.
Heed inconvenient truths told by men such as Gore,
New diseases, loosing species and more resistant spores
Neglect not your duty heretofore.
Niger, Darfur, New Orleans,
Are you saying you are comfortable?
With such horrible scense?
Go ahead be frustrated but do more than take pity
I know of solutions and plans -
how to build great new cities.
My fellow Earth Keepers you must say
"I will not let you take away
my life in useless genocide
with devastations you've contrived.´
I will devote the time I've been given
and participate in Earths Revision
to build, evolve, to love and embrace, not just my own, but the entire human race.
How dare you think you can take that from me?
This planet will survive –you'll see
We will unite. We will be free.
Of poverty, bigotry, hunger and more...
you'll see how much more there is in store
for those who'll choose to come and see
new ideas of science and technology.
Cities that think, don't pollute, and provide all our needs
Seems like a distant dream.
The technology is there, we have the know – NOW –
don't let them tell you "they've not been told how,"
We can elevate ourselves to the TRUE status called FREE
ALL you've got to do is take responsibility,
Redirected vision, a bold new direction for ALL humanity.
There have been the faithful, who've stayed in the trenches,
While the rest of us sat on our laurels on benches.
I thank all of you that have done so much for so long,
The time has now come for all to join in your song
That with EACH of us doing just one little part
is the catalyst of change and is a HUGE start.
I do my part to love the earth and raise awareness of all its worth,
of you and me -Let not one say-you may not have another day.
OK, let's get together I know there's work to be done,
and all it takes is the power of ONE!
In the Highest Vibration of Love
