1. I looked into the clouds today
and wondered why my life seemed grey.
I asked myself what led to my confusion?
My parents say another view
on all the things we humans do
will surely cure my worries. Hallelujah.
2. God made the Earth and Sky above
and hid in it his gift of love
but we can’t see it, that was my conclusion.
Because if we would love this world
the way we live would seem absurd
and we would surely find a new solution. Hallelujah.
3. You sing your mantras every night,
get ready for your next day’s fight,
follow the rule of Darwin’s evolution.
You somehow learnt that take means give
but there’s another way to live,
we only have to find it. Hallelujah.
4. Now you and me can walk new ways
and overwrite what Darwin says.
Just listen to the truth we find among us.
If you sing treble, I sing bass.
Together we will surely raise
awareness for the task that lies before us. Hallelujah.
5. I walked the streets despite the rain
and shouted out my fear and pain
but deep inside I felt insane and useless.
My sister took me by the hand
and said there is a promised land
together we can build it. Hallelujah.
