about

What kind of a world will we bequeath those who follow?

lyrics

SO MANY WAYS
My daughter, what will I bequeath you?
And what is our gift to those who will come
Will it be wisdom or will it be pain?
Sometimes I wonder how they do sleep
Those spirits who lie in our hopes and our dreams
Will they stay mute in the face of our greed?

Tell me, will the tiger still prowl?
In forests of old still gardened by time
Or will we deny him a place in our scheme
Oh please, don’t let us ever give in
We’ve got the future to win

Look up from the city that shrouds
And open your eyes, let in the light
The light that ignites all of life from above
And cherish the soil and the sweet rain
The worm and the bee, flower and seed
The leaf and the bud and the forest to be

Tell me will the lion still roar? Will the eagle still glide?
Will the zebra run? Will the dolphin swim?
Will we only know them from a book?
Oh please, don’t let us ever give in
We’ve got the future to win

My daughter, see the pattern that binds
The whole and the part, future and past
Culture and nature and body and soul
And know, good souls must never give in
We’ve got the future to win
Let’s open our eyes to begin
Let’s speak in plain words to begin
There’s so many ways to begin
