Artist: Agnes Kokot
There is a circle in which we've been caught
To wish and to pine for what we've not got
What's the point of wishing for all that you've not?
When I'm sure that you've already bought quite a lot!
I'm positive things are just sitting not sought
Stuff we thought useful but now made for naught
These can't be the lessons our elders have taught
To accumulate things until the pile sits and rots!
Instead let us spend our time dreaming sweet dreams
Of blue open skies and of crystal clear streams
Of days that are filled watching clouds white as cream
Sleep peaceful at night 'neath the glow of moon beams
Imagine with pleasure a world that agrees
A planet that's teeming with clean water and trees
A time where we know to say thank you and please
And the freshest of air is what floats on the breeze
But if we keep heading in the way that we're going
Of borrowing and scrounging, not saving but owing
Just razing and rending not planting or sowing
It's our last chance to change that we'll surely be blowing
This is the choice that I hope we all make
To smash vicious circles, catch a breath and a break
To see that our future is what is at stake
To give back in service much more than we take
I'm too old to beg that we all start to see
That this ain't just about who’s deserving or free
I ask only that you consider my plea
And come dream that sweet little dream with me...
