And I dreamed of a plant that could cure you
But I am not a botanist
And I dreamed of an equation that would save the world
But I am not a mathematician
I am mute until you hear me
We took the largest and most graceful animal that has ever lived
And chased it to the edge of extinction
In towns and in cities we gather to a superficial order
Where we attempt to control time and life
The plague of human kind that we have come to accept will not be sustained
On the path of creating that which we do not need
We consumed what we needed
You touch your children in ways that I cannot speak of here
For fear of offending you
You cannot be trusted with your own intelligence
I am nothing until I know it
Draw a line beneath your history go start again
We regard ourselves superior to other animals
And here lies the rage of our folly
As if we have been granted a power greater than that of nature itself
We have taken Earth's hospitality and raped it with our impunity
We incubate hatred with such slight of hand
That our atrocities appear almost justified
And we no longer regard the lives of our kind as family
We see the human as a threat
How many things are wrong with that
Conceited is he who makes god in the image of man
Yet it is simpler to pray for god's forgiveness
Than for us to do what is morally right
And now we build temples for money
Where once we worshiped the sun
But money doesn't change you
It just makes you richer
If freedom is theirs to give then it does not exist
For it must be taken
You allow those you have chosen to follow
To control you
To allow you and then to prevent you
From bedrooms to bar rooms
To boardrooms to battlefields
Eventually everything you touch you turn into war and greed
Welcome to the human midas prophesy
The span of your destruction is as vast as it is profound
And you will not rest until your slaughter is complete
Given enough time in which to indulge nothing
Eventually we pick up a pencil
And your appetite for creative thought is beyond even your own imagination
And here is my warning
Should you decide not to use this creative power
It will implode and make you worthless
Where once you touched the moon
