Fear Rises with the Sun

Doomed days on the horizon,
Fear rises with the sun,
The Earth has no resources,
We’ve depleted every one.
A hole above our heads,
In the skin around our world.
Our forefathers called it progress,
A grim future we’ve been hurled.
Build bombs of mass destruction,
To kill off every man.
Why destroy all life?
Just what is your plan?
Pollution on the beaches,
We watch the sealife die.
Pollution in the wind,
Can’t even see the sky.

If now we try to change,
If now we turn around.
It’s possible we might do it,
Bring life back to the ground.
Replant the once gree wilderness,
All life-forms free to roam.
Bring greenery to the cities,
Of the planet we call home.
Mother Earth, oh please forgive us,
We have no real defence.
We’d have seen it was all wrong,
Had we any sense.
Stepped back to see the outcome,
Of choices that we made,
Without your permission,
We watch the species fade,
Into non-existance,
Never seen again.
Their blood is on the hands,
Of every living Man.
