Will no one stand up for me,
I am all things can't you see.
I give you air to breath, the life that feeds
I nourished you from birth.
Never once have I ask for anything, always a silent friend.
We are as one and one we are when will you ever learn,
to know when you are lonely that you are never alone.
For I walk with you in the shadows, through the dark and dim lit roads,
when the wind is light and the sun is bright, my beauty in you shines through.
How could you forsake and turn away from me when I still see,
my gardens burnt and taken away for the price of luxury.
My children starved and diseased in the name of a gene,
what price would it be to feed to love and keep clean?
My heart of fire taken like a thief in the night, and you, you took it too,
to feed machines that take you around so fast and they say to the moon.
You will see in time to come the damage that has been done,
as you try and breathe the air once clean, if only you 'believe' you would have won.
To bring out love from hearts of rock, would that be so hard to do?
The seeds that grow I do not create, the leaders and powers that should not dictate.
And so my tears will flow with pain and sorrow, for the friend I had.
When the light that is slowly diminishing from the sadness and anger in you,
we are one and one we are and so for me it will too.
