Four hundred thousend years ago
They came from outer space
And gave us life here
We are taking everything for granted
I don't think we should do this now
And when I see the smoke all around
I feel like I'm now
From humankind down there
I feel like glaciers are my eyes
And mountains are my head
My heart is ocean
And I feel all alone
Because everybody's wrong
I feel the living
What is this thing that we call hate
And that's inside of me
Get out of here!

A world is down
And none can rebuild it
Disabled lands are evolving
My eyes are shut, a vision is dying
My head explodes
And I fall in disgrace

I hold my inner child within
And tell him not to cry
"don't fear the living"
One day you will stand as a king
And now fear can erase
This light below us
Each one of us is now engaged
This secret we all have
This truth is growing
And as a warrior I have to fight
I can already feel
The love I'll discover

I had this dream, our planet surviving
The guiding stars always growing
And all the worlds
The fates all the countries
They're all rebuilding at the same time
I never fell and always believed in
We could evolve and get older
Open your eyes and let all this flow
Now see a now hope is growing inside

We will see our children growing

    I really love this song, it's one of my favourites... This song, kind of makes me feel sad. I feel, it points out our affiliation with planet earth... But in reality, we're destroying it. It then paint a picture of a dream of what could/should be... But will never be... And this is what saddens me, as it's a dream, i myself would love to see. And finally... "we will see, our children growing" ... What an amazing chant...! Hope, faith, love, aspiration...! And to those who don't get to see this... I can't imagine your pain.
