World’s End

How will the world end?

Will we spin out of control

Into a far away star

Burning bright in the evening sky?

Will the air we need fill with smoke

Choking our hungry lungs

On poisons created by greed?

Will we hate so much that war becomes

The fiery inferno of hell?

 

What shall we do?

Shall we build an ark

For the floods we know will come?

The ice is melting and the seas will rise

Prayer alone will not see us through

Can we use our hands our hearts our heads

And turn this disaster around?

 

Listen my friends

The world’s going to end

Science is a prophet too

Let’s start to care for the planet whole

We are all in the same big boat.

We have to start bailing

The damage out

We have to repair the sails

I’ll work with you

Will you work with me?

We’ll  follow the rainbow

It will show us the way

To a renewed creation

And paradise reborn
