Lyric written for the Sustainability Project - included some variations on the “Amens” in the finale.

Lyric:
O Mankind
You’re not so kind
You came up stealthily from behind
And took all that there was to take
This was your first big mistake

The seas and oceans you command
You planted crosses on the land
And so declared supremacy
All in God’s name on bended knee

Conquistador on armored horse
For gold and power
Without remorse
To Astronaut in ships of silver
Extend the plunder, blindly pilfer

And should our Mother
Have the last laugh
And lay the errant beneath bare trees?
Black birds circling their white bones
A just, yet bitter testimony.

Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen


(close to key of G)
