10. Fixing Up This World

(Greg Bond)
September 20, 1999
Suddenly,
There's a chance this world is
Breathing in it's final breath.
That we're living it to death.
If what they say is true
We will turn this fertile earth into
A barren land, unless we make a stand.
But it's hard to fight a battle
When the enemy's unseen.
Got to force myself to understand,
What saving this world means.

Leaf by leaf and tree by tree.
Fixing Up This World
Shore by shore and sea by sea
Oh, don't let it die.
Hey! Call me crazy!
I see the light but it's oh so hazy.
Call me late, but don't call me lazy
Fixing up this world

Shake myself and stop this waste,
I gotta seek out those in power.
'Cause by the time we find out it's too late,
It's gonna be our darkest hour.
But we can build our strength in numbers
We can do what must be done.
We can someday tell our children
That we fought to save this world.
And won.

Leaf by leaf and tree by tree
Shore by Shore and Sea by Sea
Page by page and can by can
Recycle now and use again.
House by house and town by town,
Turn our way of life around.
Aerosol and Styrofoam
Ban it now or lose our home
North by South and East by West
We must stop fouling our own nest.

Leaf by leaf and tree by tree.
Fixing Up This World
Shore by Shore and Sea by Sea
Oh, don't let it die.
Hey! Call me crazy!
I see the light but it's oh so hazy.
Call me late, but don't call me lazy
Fixing up this world.
