Come and see the brilliant light,
Don't let your emotions mask your sight,
It's the manifestation of a deeper fight,
That affects me and you,
My optimism was running high,
A new world order was on my mind,
But I couldn't believe it when I heard them say,
They're blowing it away,
And the fertile crescent is burning today,
And baby my emotions are too,
The cradle of humanity has led us all astray,
And we're all in this together don't you know,
Cause our species has nowhere else to go
Aggression rears it's ugly head,
Retaliation brings further dread,
The two are linked by unseen threads,
That wind back through time,
I don't agree with this outdated trend,
Nationalism is an evil friend,
But hatred is instilled by invisible lines,
Drawn in our minds,
And the fertile crescent is haunting us today,
And bay our instincts are too,
The ghost of humanity is warning us this way
And I think that we all should heed it don't you know,
Cause we've got nowhere else to go.
