Over and Out

By Bruce Clifford

Iíve seen much of this world
From the inside and inside out
All bundled up and curled
Voices encouraging me to shout Over and out

Iíve stood my place in time
From the moment the sky began to cry
Living with the undefined
Keeping my place in line
Time after time

Do you think things are okay like this
Or do you think we should fight and resist
Do you think this world is in a better place
What are we leaving for the future of the human race

Iíve seen much of this world
The territories within our hearts
Spinning in this funnel and whirl
We are the makers before we depart
From the start

Climate change
Can you spare some change
The world in a rage
Coming of age

What are we leaving for the future of the human race
What is the plan for our generation to save face
Once we arrive to our new home deep in space
What will be left here that we never could replace

Iíve seen much of this world
From the inside and inside out
All bundled up and curled
Voices encouraging me to shout
Over and out
