"Water" as written by and Daniel Gildenloew Pain Of Salvation....
Ground water moves very slowly.
While water at surface can be measured in
Meters per second,
The ground water will more likely be measured in meters
Per year!
Contamination of the ground water causes severe damage for a very
Long time.

Despite this, military and nuclear industry constantly pollutes large areas
Of ground water
In times of peace.

I've always loved the sound of rain
Touching so softly my windowpane
And then the scent of dew at dawn
Coming to greet me from my moist lawn

I always took it for granted
I never valued the drops I shed
I failed to see the relation
Between my self and world starvation

Water's for the chosen
But how come we expect us to be those few
Me and you?

In this hot,
Desolate timeglass I met this man,
Wearing a worn old flyer's cap.
Every day he had to dig 10 feet down for his daily ration of water
One poor gallon.
And so he did
Singing while doing it!

10 feet of sand for the thirst
But he gave me half of what he was given for a day
All for thirst and sanity use
While we use up hundred times more:
What do we do with it?
Pipes and bathtubs, sprinklers and fountains!
Freshwater used as a dump for oil and nuclear waste!
"Desert people turns humble" he said
They know what they have
But do they know what they lose when we flush?

But yet, sadly,
He looked up to me.
Felt a need for our greed:
Our "freedom".
Said all he really wanted was a car and a radio.
He too failed to see the relation
Between our lives
And his starvation

Water's for the chosen
Water's for the few
Life is for the chosen
But only if we believe it to be true
But we do!
(But I'm through!)

I've always loved the sound of rain
