Going Away

The hills used to have flowers growing, all kinds
but nowadays it seems they’re all dying
and I just feel afraid
that my world is going away

The sky used to be filled with birds and butterflies
but they left when the little furry guys
took off into the night, filling me with a fright
that my world is going away

Going away x4

Do Mr. Politician and Mr. Industry
feel like I do about these things
do they wake up late nights crying because the world is dying
do they feel like I do about the world

Going away x4

When I walk into the mountains, when I sail upon the sea
I meditate on solutions for the problems of the world and me
You see, I’m a child of this great planet, born here and I’ll have you know
that when my world is leaving me, with it I will go
