It's a wants vs needs thing.

"Untill we learn to live without, things that we do not need to live,
we run the risk of running out of the very things we do." Joram

Stop, look and listen.
The tress with water droplets glisten.

Watch the changing tapestry of the oceans and the sky,
Contemplate; who, what, when and why.

We live a life filled with pathways of lies.
Consumed with consuming to hectic to recognize.

Seeing but not viewing,
Hearing but not listening,
Using up and not renewing.

We construct monuments of affluence, fueled by our greed,
Rather than living by what we need.

Sixty billion years of life before us;
Silent were the lives.
Now the planet can not ignore us as we jab her with our knives.

The way we live, a mere versimilitude,
We defy and deny our impact inspite of its magnitude.

When will we act? Will it be too late?
We feel we can fix anything, no matter what we create.

What justifies this notion
That's emmersed in commotion?

Why do we assume wrongly that we are that great?
This noxious notion...
I am afraid will seal our fate. Joram

  1. there's something happinin here
    what it is aint exactly clear
    theres a man with a gun over there
    tellin me i got to beware

    i think it's time we stop, children
    what's that sound
    everybody look what's goin down

    there's battle lines being drawn
    nobody's right if everybody's wrong
    young people speakin there minds
    getting so much resistance far behind

    it's time we stop,
    hey what's that sound
    everybody look what's goin down

    what a field day for the heat
    a thousand people in the street
    singin songs that they carry inside
    mostly say hurray for our side

    it's time we stop,
    hey what's that sound
    everybody look what's goin down

    there are lawyer strikes deep
    into your life it will creep
    it starts when your always afraid
    step out of line the man come and take you away

    you better stop
    hey what's that sound
    everybody look what's going down x4
