lyrics

“ I can’t breathe”, is the writing on the walls
That divide us like isms before the fall
With racism still, killing out of fear,
We all know the plague does not discriminate
With cartoon politicians blind to the science,
They can’t see the forest for the trees
And they can’t tell remedies from disease
But maybe there’s a realization in works,
Or maybe a major breakthrough,
Maybe this is more than just pause and reflect?
And this wake up call is getting through

Lay me down by the river in the almighty green,
To reawaken my belief in this dream
As planetary people we all belong,
It can be so hard to keep the faith
With greed fed destroyers claiming to know
Fabricating fake news for their illusions of control
But maybe there’s a realization in works,
Or maybe a major breakthrough,
Maybe this is more than just pause and reflect?
And this wake up call is getting through
We are the planetary people, We are the planetary people
Taking heed of the call of the times,
Taking heed of the call of the times

We are the planetary people, We are the planetary people
Taking heed of the call of the times,
Taking heed of the call of the times

No more killing out of colour, or discrimination by race
No more lies, no more pretence, no more truth cover ups
Give us life , give us love, give us faith, give us truth
Give us hope for a way to share this world

We are the planetary people, We are the planetary people
Taking heed of the call of the times
We are the planetary people, We are the planetary people
Taking heed of the call of the times
Taking heed of the call of the times
Maybe there’s a realization in works
Or maybe a major breakthrough,
Maybe this is more than just pause and reflect?
And this wake up call is getting through
