Since time began man has fought through fear and for greed
And when at war he’s also killed mother natures seed
As the bombs explode the earth is scarred by this awful fight
And all can see the victors will be the victims of this terrible blight
Sun Rising, shining down on earth
Sun Rising, what is life worth?
Sun Rising, helping us to grow
Perhaps until we die we just won’t know.
And when at peace man has ravaged the forests and the seas
He’s taken all the fishes and he’s timbered all the trees
He’s filled the air with the stench of smog in his rush to succeed
And then he’s dumped his waste and left the earth - he’s left the earth to bleed
And man is remorseless as he marches to his fate
He must soon see the harm he’s done before it is to late
How can there be any doubt that some good must be done
If we are to prevent the setting of our rising sun
Sun Rising, (shining down on earth)
Sun Rising (what is life worth?)
Sun setting is it now to late?
A beautiful song from a British independent artist about war and environmental destruction. He writes about this song:
An environmental song reflecting on how mankind continues to abuse mother earth
