From the recording Word Burps
The Earth is Crying
(Music - M. Novak, Lyrics - M. Novak, C. Webster)
A unique blue marble, a paradise named Earth
Streams ran clear unimpeded to the sea
Skies of blue, clouds of white, a climate for rebirth
Oceans teeming with life, evolution runs free
Animals roaming on the open range
But soon evolution will not be the only way of change
It started as rain When the earth was crying
Now the color is red the earth is crying
Now oceans of plastic The earth is crying
Now brown skies above The earth is crying
Wounds that don’t heal The earth is crying
But the corporate nations just keep on lying.
From a group of primates there evolved mankind
Early man was in harmony with nature at the start
When city states arose they were no longer aligned
When man became civilized he lost his natural heart
Man’s lack of understanding of virus and germs
Their waste, the first pollution with it’s own terms
When humans started harvesting pieces of earth
False perceptions of abundance they were given little worth
With hot fires burning they forged iron ores
Producing gears and rails and weapons of war.
The earth is crying and it’s tears turn to blood.
Will it’s tears raise the seas and create a flood.
Mother Earth is now raped for a few men’s greed
The scars on her surface shows where she bleeds.
Her gifts to mankind are finite by nature
Business men still ignore Her warnings of danger
When profits are seen as rights given by god
Nothing else matters and the earth starts to sob
