Let the Sun Shine

We pollute the water
We poison the land
We burn all our trees
For supply and demand

The sun won’t shine
And frankly, I don’t blame it
We screwed this world up
But we can still save it

We use nuclear attacks
And kill the human race
We wipe our whole cultures
Cuz we don’t like their face

The sun wants to shine
But it cannot bare
To watch us destroy ourselves
Without even a care

We need the sun
It’s our source of life
So don’t let the sun die
Because of our strife

Work it all out
I know you can do it
Don’t just kill, people
Try to work through it

    Please keep up the good work your doing! (Smile)

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
