Morning Song
morning song

morning song

Black cows on a hillside
Black pepper on sand
Another golden sunrise

Warming up the land

Springtime’s a memory
Summer’s not here yet
Patch of green in the valley
The rumble of a jet

The world is waking up
The world is waking up

Shining facts of physics
On display overhead
Clouds too soon fade to blue
Blackbird’s wing is red

Steel diesel breaking wood
Another protest day
Same old story in a different place
In a hard land far away

The world is waking up
The world is waking up

And the earth is warming up
And Mars is warming up
And Jupiter too
And how about you?

ImageThe solar system’s edge
Like a distant dusty ledge
Like a ballerina’s skirt
Collides with cosmic dirt

The world is waking up
The world is waking up

Ripples on the water
Concentric rings
Fish, birds and dragonflies
All the morning things

The highway stretches
Man casts his line
Shadows evaporate
In a whisper of time

We are given eyes to see
Given ears to hear
We have two arms to reach out
And push away the fear

And wipe away a tear
And bring the distant near
And how about you
How ’bout you?

The world is waking up
The world is waking up
The world is waking up
The world is waking up

(Wake up!)
