We've got to take care - walk lightly on the face of the earth

lyrics

WALK LIGHTLY

It’s a fragile ecosystem that we’ve all got to exist in

We’ve got to learn some give and take

Take care for goodness sake

Walk lightly on the face of the earth



Now Bob Dylan said the times they are a changing

But maybe it’s just the deckchairs rearranging

While the mothership earth keeps taking a belting

And the icebergs, they just keep on a melting

Walk lightly on the face of the earth



Now some people they go and they blame the scientists

Who race for the prize irrespective of the costs

But it’s the growth economics that promotes the racing

Along with the climate deniers and their rabid green hating

We’ve got to walk lightly on the face of the earth



We’re living in an age called the anthropocene

Which threatens to be the shorteat age that’s ever been

Dominated by a species with the rare distinction

Of being the only one to cause a global mass extinction

Walk lightly on the face of the earth



Now we’re facing a problem there’s no denying

And you needn’t be a hippy or a Gaian*

To know that we need more symbiosis

Not this destructive, shallow, massive psychosis

You know we’ve got to walk lightly on the face of the earth
