Poisoned Tree of Life

All this is a test run
This much is so clear now
Getting us ready for something
Clues everywhere as to how

Carried in our DNA
Growing stronger every day
The cost of knowledge is fear
And what we know we don’t know getting in our way

Dare you dream
Night having lost half its wonder
Are you strong enough to fly with wings torn asunder

Reach for the stars
Nearer every day
And try not to think of the blood boiling in your veins

Green earth our shared birthplace
Caught up in our conquest
Tearing her apart
Animals clawing, unable to rest

Terrestrial viruses
Advanced beyond our wisdom
Control losing out to desire
Greed turning life into a prison

Dare you dream
Night having lost half its wonder
Are you strong enough to fly with wings torn asunder

Reach for the stars
Nearer every day
And try not to think of the blood boiling in your veins
