where are you
Our minds are wounded
Seeding us fragile- one slip, one
awkward fall, we're splintered sea-glass, Hey
Humpy Dumpy, how do we get back together again?
Future, we're at war (again) - Over race & religion & oil
Our hearts are rust, paper mached by too much hate -- herd-
Mentality we are - Staying mute is our game - No questions asked
You see, we're all algorithms, predictable puppets of a few who wield
wealth & power -- Yes sir -- Yes ma'm - Yes sir -- Yes ma'm -- Yes sir!
Future, we warred with our mother earth, her trees & creatures
Hunting for trophy & greed-- Killing species -- Pumping oil &
digging gold while pouring poison in air, land & water
We walked with time bombs. Tick, tick, boom !!!
Future, give us another chance. Another
planet or star. We'll even take Pluto.
Maybe this time, we'll listen
to our neighbors & enemies
& take better care
