For millions of years since the world first begun
I've shielded your Earth from the rays of the sun
But thoughtless effusion of diesel and smoke
Leaves your planet engulfed in a cancerous cloak
I have no defence from released CFC
The OZONE am I.. don't you care about me?
You've hunted me ceaselessly through countless years
For fortune and pleasure
With harpoons and spears
A gentle colossus - what song can I sing
If silenced forever by the horror you bring?
How toxic the waste you pump into my sea?
I'm only a WHALE - don't you care about me?
My ancestors lived in the dinosaur age
You view me as clumsy, in permanent rage
My horn is now prized as a positive cure
For your impotent men - is it worth my life for?
I've nowhere to run to
I'm no longer free
A RHINO am I - don't you care about me?
I've peopled your meadows, your mountainous plains
Created new cultures,
Brought life-giving rains
I'm only the EARTH, but by your foolish greed
You deny me a future
Oh, people, take heed!
For I weep for creation
And how it should be
If your race does not care then it's too late for me..
