First World nation with Third World water
Polluted rivers and dying fish sauteed in dying souls
First World nation with Third World air
Clean coal was a choking dirty lie
First World nation with Third World poverty
Launch cars into space and dole out awards
While the masses of millions struggle to survive
First World nation with Third World refugee crisis
Scold and mock those most in need
Some could only wish they had a van down by the river
Dying souls, dying passions, dying species
Look up. Have you seen the stars lately?
Not likely, how many of us have been robbed?
We have been stripped of our connection to the Universe
People no longer look up
Eyes shrouded in electronic glow
People no longer ask questions
The essence of philosophy
The language of the Heavens
Screaming with the death of those who asked why
If only they saw how we live now
Ask the questions
Why do we not fly off the Earth?
What is out in the Heavens?
No one shoots for the stars
Except for those exporting capitalism
Light up the sky and darken the soul
