The world lives within me

Walking through the darkened lanes
With you and all life in my veins
Turn my head to see your face
We all but dread the human race

What we’ve done to this living world
Moon and sun have come unfurled
Vulnerable to our poison touch
Are we able to have done this much?

If this was done to a human being
The punished son would lose his dream
Public outcries filling the streets
Political good guys take to their feet

But alas my friend, it is only the earth
Some believe its end will bring new birth
No one can fathom how strongly I feel
We lose this blue gem; we lose all that is real

The world lives within me
