"Revelation (mother Earth)" as written by and Marcus Miller....
Mother please forgive them
For they know not what they do
Looking back in history's books
It seems it's nothing new
Oh! Let my mother live

Heaven is for heroes
And hell is full of fools
Stupidity, no will to live
They're breaking God's own rules
Please let my mother live

Father, of all creation
I think we're all going wrong
The course they're taking
Seems to be breaking
And it won't take too long

Children of the future
Watching empires fall
Madness the cup they drink from
Self destruction the toll

I had a vision, l saw the world burn
And the seas had turned red
The sun had fallen, the final curtain
In the land of the dead

Mother, please show the children
Before it's too late
To fight each other, there's no-one winning
We must fight all the hate

    General CommentThe world is crumbling...empires are falling and nobody seems to care. The children of today need to do something about it so their futures will not collapse sooner than they plan for them too...

    We don't wantthe children of today to be children of the grave (heh heh)

    General Commenta great song ! to me...it's not how fast you move your fingers up and down the fret board of a guitar...it's feeling and emotion of how well the song is written and played that matters to me. it's insane to think that ozzy can fortell the future !
