Earth Talks

Pebbles on the beach
The rocks in the field
Got something to teach
A protest to appeal
Want to be old some day
To be smooth and small
Lie in the sand they say
Not in a road or wall

Rocks, these rocks, are talking to me
Rocks, these rocks, are talking to me
Rocks, these rocks, are talking to me
Rocks these rocks, don't like what they see

Trees in the forest
Surrounded by the rot
Eatin car exhaust
But not all we got
Fighting wind and rain
Choking on the smoke
From endless human trains
They never get to vote

Trees, these trees, are talking to me
Trees, these trees, are talking to me
Trees, these trees, are talking to me
Trees, these trees, don't like what they see

Clouds up in the sky
Pushed by ghostly wind
We all know why
The oil burning sin
Forming thick and black
Empty all their pain
Mount a new attack
To heat and load again

Clouds, these clouds, are talking to me
Clouds, these clouds, are talking to me
Clouds, these clouds, are talking to me
Clouds, these clouds, don't like what they see

Leaders of the planet
Were in Paris a while back
Before the new agreement
Mother Earth had a speech
“Act instead of bluff
Got to stop the talk”
They say “what’s the rush
To run we have to walk”

Stop, this talk, just talking to me
Stop, this talk, just talking to me
Stop, this talk, just talking to me
The future, is closer, than ever you see

That meeting and the show
All the promise and the hope
Of someone else's action
Ends another episode
Plans they made were plans
But who will act that way
The path is there to take
Earth needs more than one day

Stop, this talk, just talking to me
Stop, this talk, just talking to me
Stop, this talk, just talking to me
The future, is closer, than ever you see
