VERSE 1 & 2 Music Sample

VERSE 1

 

Life in itís many forms a mystery.

 

It lives on land in the air and in the sea.

 

But now all our actions surely guarantee,

 

Humanity,

 

Is doing more harm than itís worth.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

The Earth is a precious present that He gave.

 

When we ignite fossil fuels we misbehave.

 

Believe that it will be our selves that we save.

 

We must be brave,

 

And stand up for our Mother Earth.

There comes a time when we must make a change.

 

If we donít ozone holes will replace acid rain.

 

How can we say no?  This is not the time to flake.

 

Time is now cause itís for our childrenís sake.

VERSE 3

 

Far in the future man will still be here.

 

NaÔve that our total demise came so near.

 

So glad their forefathers didnít live in fear.

 

Time for rebirth

VERSE 3 (Alternative Choice)

 

Hey, guess we shouldn't really get annoyed.

 

Bird flu will soon get us, or an asteroid.

 

While slow, all those zombies you just canít avoid.

 

So just give up.
