Jerry petersWhat does it take to show an illustrationOf the hurt and the pain of a nation.One glowing look upon a ragged canvasTells the story of our past and present situationThat old bush just keeps on burningNobody seems to show they’re learningThat old bush just keeps on burning.I wonder will we ever feel the flame.Our way of life on total exhibitionShows the way in which we live of anImperfect nation.This tree of life so far from perfecitonShare a little love to improve our situation.That old bush just keeps on burningShare the hope for future learningI wonder will we ever feel the flameFlow of light could really stand a listenBring the dark to the light, show usWhat we’ve been missing.Not many men are satisfiedWithout no light, there ain’t no prideThere’s gonna come a time,Things that are on your mind.Trust and you will findEverything in your mindTrue love is here to findSimple as number 9Multiply you will findPeace and love all the time.
