The Cries of Humanity

Tony Kruska 1988 (New York)



Imagine if the fearmongers were stopped in their tracks
Maybe then we all could find a little time to relax
If we only know the truth about what really goes on
We would finally begin to see its darkest before dawn
We need to act fast we have to think of something quick
Oceans in a state of turmoil making killer whales sick
The sea is thick with swirls of oil, fossil fuels on the rise
As the blinded politicians try to feed us with lies
Hear the cries of our humanity scream out to the world
Listen to the echoes reach out as they start to unfurl
