Earth Patriot

There are many around the world who think we won't survive
But deep in my heart I know we'll stay alive
We must put aside our differences and see who we are
Born to this land our beautiful earth star

Over eons of time nations have risen and fell
Legends of their glory their children learned to tell
Each country's history written through their eyes
Today the walls have crumbled down at last we realize
Realize in their eyes

Earth Patriot
We are Earth Patriots
No more flags,
No more glory
We are Earth Patriots

From the vastness of Antarctica
To the Himalayas rising high
The earth is under siege
The land the sea the sky

We can no longer turn away and pretend we do not see
We hold all the answers
To help to set her free
Set her free, you and me

Earth Patriot
We are Earth Patriots
No more flags,
No more glory
We are Earth Patriots



April 1990
Written in Commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of Earth Day
