Friends Of The Earth

V1.a            
This is our home, a refuge in the emptiness,                
A jewel of life, a miracle of birth,
A bubble of air between us and oblivion,
Spinning through time, across the universe.

Tell everyone the time has come to change things,
Shout it out loud for everything you're worth,
Follow your heart, believe & make it happen,
 Join hands together, friends of the earth ...

CHORUS
We want to live ...Save the world
We want to live ...Save the world

V2a             
Can we be friends, live our lives together ?
In meadows of green, under skies of blue,
Be a part of my world, stand up & say you're with me,
Be there for me & I'll be there for you.

Tell everyone the time has come to change things,
Shout it out loud for everything you're worth,
Follow your heart, believe & make it happen,
Join hands together, friends of the earth ...   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make It Be

V1.
Who am I ? What can I do ?
I can close my eyes and dream but I can't make a dream come true.
Feel the earth, touch the sky.
See its fragile beauty choked and crushed before your eyes.
And the ripples from the pebbles that we toss away each day,
The motion of a butterfly ten thousand miles away,
Every little thing we do can make a change some way.

CHORUS
We, we can make it be.

V2.
Every word, every deed,
Every thing we do now is planting a seed.
Take my hand believe with me.
If we act together we can make this dream fly free.
And the ripples on the water are spreading all around.
A storm is blowing up and the wind is whistling round.
But there's still time to change things if we help each other now.

CHORUS

V3.
There's a place we long to be.
This could be the place if we set it free.
There's a sun that shines on you.
There's beauty all around us; can you see it too.
Leave the car at home today; take action with your feet.
Regenerate the broken glass and paper from the street.
Know good friends are just strangers we have yet to meet.

CHORUS

 

Metamorphosis

Verse 1    
A wind is blowing – a sudden wind of change
    
A dust cloud gathers everywhere.
A shape is growing, forming in the gloom
The sound of
  distant drumming fills the air.

Chorus
Don’t you just know that something isn’t right?
Don’t you just feel that there should be more to life?
Don’t you just wish there was a future full of promise;
 
something beautiful and lasting was in sight?...
Metamorphosis
 

Verse 2
Here it comes – a quivering mass of flesh
Marching through a green and fertile place.
Relentlessly advancing, consuming all it meets
Leaving only barren empty waste.

Chorus

Middle Eight 1
Suddenly the creature is upon me
I feel the earth move all around
A deafening roar of angry voices
I find I recognise the sound
It’s human greed personified
A people monster miles wide
A rabid beast that can’t be satisfied…
 

Middle Eight 2
I’m sucked into this nightmare
 journey
Pulled along at lightning
 speed
But there are others like me
 trapped here
We join together in our
 need.
We
 find a way to cause a change
We watch the creature re-arrange
We witness an emergence new and
 strange…

Verse 3
There it goes – soaring through the air
Light and beautiful in flight
Beneath its wings life returns more fair
A new earth starts to bloom before our sight

Chorus
