Emergence

a song by Jim Molloy, UK

 Far out in space
 The moon looks down on a barren place
 Mirror of its grey and ancient face
 Blue sea and sky
 Sun set at the end of time as the final tide
 Expires in the silence of the night
 No more remains
 Sands erase the relics of the human race
 As the insubstantial pageant fades away
 Ocean and river have run dry
 Creation has been wasted and all life on earth has died
 Its an emergency
 A world wide alert
 Call time now
 Its an emergency
 A call out to the world
 All turn round
 Zoom in
 See what we do
 Ten thousand years
 Fires burn and sword clears
 The greenwood fields
 Let the land lords take control through fear and need 
 Nature tamed and sold
 Life reduced and traded for the fossil fuel
 To feed machines of iron oil and stone
 Ground to dust and cast to brick
 Chimney stacks that smoke and stink
 And the forests shrink and islands sink 
 And strange clouds gather over us 
 Planet Earth is burning in the night
 Turn to the cycle of fresh water air and light
 Its an emergency
 A world wide alert
 Call time now
 Its an emergency
 A call out to the world
 All turn round
 If we all work together
 We can rescue the world
 If we all come together be as one 
 But if we keep this way going
 There will be no more earth
 We will all fall like stone down to the sun
 Zoom in
 See what you do
 Life's wild power
 Winding spread of leaf and flower
 Growing in the sun
 Undermine the highway and the city tower
 Young rebel song
 A change must come
 Let green nature spring again
 In the land where we belong
 Find your way home
 Follow where the clear stream flows
 Let the garden heal and grow
 Feel the clean rain on your skin again
 Seven Billion people need one home
 Unite all the nations in a new band of hope
 If we all work together
 We can rescue the world
 If we all come together be as one 
 But if we keep this way going
 There will be no more earth
 We will all fall like stone down to the sun
 Zoom in
 See what we do
 Zoom in to the human zoo
