How long?

How long must it be

Before we open our eyes and begin to see

The land that we were gifted,

Isn’t quite what it used to be.

Down below our hurried steps

The earth weeps for our unrest.

Emptied of gratitude, our lifeless eyes

Filled with deception, brimming with lies

How blind are we, not to see

It isn’t what it used to be.

The breeze is losing its melody

The stars are beginning to bleed

The moon weeps for our wretched ways

We’re losing it all, it’s only a matter of days

How long before we begin to see,

Before we have enough soul to hear her plea

How long before we can finally see, 

It isn’t what it used to be.
